North St. Paul history museum to host talk, book signing by 'Antie Clare' Erickson

Clarice Erickson, who for years was the proprietor of Antie Clare's Doll Hospital, Shop & Museum in downtown North St. Paul, will give a talk entitled "My Journey of Faith" at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 16, at the North St. Paul Historical Society Museum, 2666 E. Seventh Ave.

The wide-ranging talk will focus on Erickson's memoir "Found, Forgiven, Forever!" and her unique life journey.

An accomplished "doll doctor," she was a fixture in the North St. Paul business community for three decades, and people traveled long distances to have her restore their antique and childhood dolls, and their outfits.

And her museum was a favorite place for birthday parties, tea parties, and school, Scout and Red Hat Society tours.

Erickson grew up in the Hammond and Baldwin, Wisconsin, area and has lived in Saskatchewan, Alaska and around the Midwest. After residing in 26 different places, she now calls Roseville home.

She has extensive experience as a guest speaker, and has given talks throughout the country, from Florida to Alaska.

Following her talk at the history museum, she will be signing her book, which was published by Xulon Press.

The event is free of charge, and light refreshments will be served.
