Many times, people have asked me if I am a collector or a "player"... Well, I do have a doll house, and they are dressed everyday. But I refer to my self as a "collector.".
LONG story! :) So sit back and be prepared for this one.
Whenever I found a good deal, I bought it. Ballet outft ($10), to good to pass up! Brand new, lots of pieces, CHEAP!. What about Felicity's Summer dress? ($12, complete, good condition?). After awile, I had two packeges coming EVERYDAY. (*cough*) I still do.
I just kept getting "good deals". I still have quite a bit of doll money, $350 (with another $300 on the way). I buy and sell for a living (lol, I am a kid/teenager!). So, if I didn't like it, I sold it...
BUT the more and more I get things in the mail, the LESS they mean. The more dolls I get, the less they mean. The more money I get (or earn), the less it means.
Do you know what I mean?
Well, I sat down the other day, and told myself I HAD to resolve this! SO I DID. I made a paper of all the things I needed/wanted. If the item wasn't on the list, even if it was a good deal, I would put it to the side.
I am going to be completing Josephina, Addy, and Rebecca. As many of you know, I do not like purchasing modern items from AG, but sometimes I do. I put a limit of outfits, shoes, etc I can have for that collection. BUT I can have as much Etsy as I want. XD
That means, that some things need to go. They are all on Ebay right now, selling away. if I sell everything (I am pretty close!) I will get another $350 for my dolls that I LOVE.
I am selling:
Cecile (sadly I didn't bond with her)
1/2 of my modern
and some books.
I am quite happy with my desicion! Are you with yours? ;)
Purchases coming soon:
Saige;s Dog (got for $15.00 brand new)
NEW DOLL! XD
AND some Josephina items.
What are your plans for your collection?
Thanks for listening!
