A while back I blogged about my collection of Barbie Dolls which I started collecting in about 1995 and am looking to sell or at least move on now. To be honest the money isn't really that important to me.
I am having limited success with this exercise. Their are not too many barbie collectors in Ireland and I am not inclined to post abroad. So I need to come up with ways of "shifting" them. I may sell them at a bric-brac type sale coming which Enid and I have attended in the past.
I am also getting creative and giving them as gifts where possible.
It was my niece's birthday last week. She was 8. So she got 1996 Birthday Barbie as a present.
Barbie goes all out on her birthday and rocks a full length, full skirted ball gown. Go Barbie!
While it is in mint condition and is over 20 years old I am leaving it entirely up to my niece if she wants to keep it in the box or take it out and play with it. I think it would be unfair to say to an 8 year old, it's vintage don't take her out of her box.
