Tomopop About Town: Dollfie World
by Chris Seto

If you consider yourself a bit of a doll fan or even if you're just a little curious, there's a place in Hong Kong which you should check out.

Hidden (and I mean REALLY hidden) in the 18th floor of a very nondescript building in Monk Kok lies a little storefront for Dollfie World. A mostly online shop run by Natalie Lau, the shop deals mostly in Dollfie Dream merchandise and parts, but also cater for a larger variety of other dolls as well. There's also another service they provide which will be of use to those thinking of diving into purchasing a Volks doll, especially if they aren't in the U.S.!
