Sorry I haven’t posted since Monday. It has been a good but busy week for me.
It is gardening season so; I have done some of that. I met a couple who
collect dolls in person. I hope to post and interview soon. It was so nice
to meet collectors in person. I know most of you over the net but hope to
meet some of you one day in person. I sold a few things on the dollpage.
(The economy must be getting better because things are selling better now)
So, I had some boxing and packing to do. I still have to post more things
on the dollpage, some feedback to leave and some change of status to do.
I hope to get to all of that this weekend. I have a few new things which
I will share with you today.
FirstWhile out and about, I stopped into some discount stores just to see what
they have. I saw this and I passed.
I had something like it. I came across this clone AA Barbie doll there.
I don’t think Mattel did this doll in an AA version but I could be wrong.
If you have different info, let me know. I have seen her several times
in an AA clone version but the face wasn’t as nice as this one. I may not
be the the best picture taker but her is the close up.
She doesn’t have that ashy complexion that some knock off dolls have.
I like her, I could work with the dress and I like the lamp. So I got it.
With the doll, I knew what I was getting into. I knew I would not keep
the body. I did put it in the recycle trash bin. I would hate to think that
I am adding to a pile of trashed Barbie dolls in some other country.
I took the dress of the doll. Ms. D models the dress. She must get
more photo time this year!
when I put it on Ms. D.
The shoe weren't good at all so I add these.
Ms. D: At least it isn’t as crazy as those” I can be” outfits!
There aresome problems with the fit (even on the original body) but nothing
someone with a sewing machine can’t handle. Hint, hint!
I will replace the plastic with some nice ribbon and add some ribbon
over the stitching at the bottom too.
I knew the dresser was paper but I think I can use that.
What I was surprised to find out is that the lamp had no base? It was
tucked behind the dresser! Yeah, that was happens with a knock off.
Some things are not right! Are you to leave everything in the box?
equipment I had.
I put her on a new body. She will work at the news station with Steven.
Her name is Britta Bankcroft. For a knock off doll she photos really well.
I came across this Barbie sized foosball set. It reminded me of Friends.
I am a fan of Friends and the fun they had.
I love the details the player move and it comes with 2 balls. I have
several places that I would like to put it! I really should have gotten
two of these. I will have to go back! I thinking it should go in the
Student Activity Center or in a bar. Maybe it should go in the girls’
You take that!
Finally, I won this on eBay. I bid 0.99 on it not expecting to get it.
They told me I won!
It has some cool things that is does. the tape wheels
move and colors behind the board changes.
Check it out!
Out of the box.
Some discoloring :(
The chair swings out!
Britta in the seat!
This changes colors.
Britta at the keyboard.
This spins and the pattern changes.
It can go into the TV, radio station or maybe in
the lighting and electronics at the museum. I do think it will need
painting but maybe not.
Thanks For Looking!
