When did you start collecting pose dolls? June 2008
Why do you collect pose dolls? I saw one in a Livejournal community post. I tracked one down on eBay and became hooked as soon as she arrived.
How many pose dolls do you own? About 80
Where do you buy your pose dolls? Ebay & Etsy
Where/how do you display your pose dolls? I have 2 makeshift bookcases that I keep the majority on. I arrange them by color/style because I'm super anal.
What was your first pose doll? (See pic below)
What is your favorite pose doll? (See pic below)
What is the most amount of money you have spent on a pose doll? I don't think I've ever spent more than $100 on one, though I have been tempted. I would feel way too guilty!
Do you sell your pose dolls? Where? Yes. Ebay. My mind changes frequently, and I like to make room for new ones.
Any interesting stories about pose dolls you'd like to share? On my birthday this year, which was totally coincidental, I received a message from a random lady on eBay. She told me she'd noticed I'd won several pose dolls recently, and she had 4 she wanted to get rid of because she only collects Ginny and they were just sitting in her closet. I thought she was asking if I wanted to buy them, but no, she insisted on giving them to me absolutely free! She wouldn't even accept the shipping fees! She said someone had done that for her one day with her Ginny dolls and she wanted to do something as kind for someone else. Made my whole birthday, and month for that matter. They arrived a couple weeks later, and were mint Holiday Fair dolls that I'd actually tried to buy at seperate times in the past but was always outbid.
Any interesting pose doll photos you'd like to share for the blog? The first makeover dolly that I actually liked.
Are pose doll collectors crazy? Yes!
Do you collect anything else? Barbie is my first & foremost collecting obsession.
Thoughts, questions, comments? Anything else you'd like to add? I've met the sweetest people since I began collecting pose dolls.
Thank you GINA!!!
