Hi! I'm Barbara E. I have been a doll collector for ten years. I played with Barbie as a little girl in the eighties, and back then the Dream Glo line was my favorite.
As an adult collector, I started back collecting the BMR line and Silkstone Barbies, but then once Fashion Royalty entered the scene, that was it for me. I do buy the occasional Barbie though, like their new Fashion Model line.
I also buy action figures from makers like HotToys, ZCWorld, and DiD. I like action figures because they make really good very nice casual clothing for the guys.
I cruise ebay ALL THE TIME for stuff for my collection. That's where I get most of my furniture and some OOAK pieces. I have my favorites like Matisse, LaBoutique, LittleDreams, and Vanes.
I have been to most of the FR conventions, though I missed the last one. I hope to make it to Orlando this year.
As for the other doll boards, I mostly post at DollDivas, though I do visit the W Club forum and Pink Parlor sometimes.
If you got any questions, just ask!
