Denise, What a great article on refreshing your doll collection! My method is to take out one doll out of her case and display her for one week in a busy but safe area of my home. Once handled and the constant passing by makes me think about what more could be done for her… a new slip or shoes?, or maybe something I had forgotten to do. Too, “putting her on a pedistal” so to speak, which separates her from my other dolls, gives her my complete attention and I find new enjoyment as to why I have her to begin with. Another method I found livens up my collection is to change wigs every so often. New colors and styles create brand new beautiful dolls to love all over again. Thanks for listening! Joan

All doll collectors should take a day once a month to handle a group of their dolls, both to enjoy them, remember if there was any repair you planned to make and to inspect them for problems. Finally, after you admire them and clean off the dust, primp their clothes, and really enjoy them for a few minutes. Isn’t that why you collected them in the first place?

Another type of doll collecting revitalizing technique which will never go out of style is keeping records, all the while bringing you closer to your dolls, and the more you add, clearly makes this book the one you love to read over and over again. If’ you’re like me, you are on a never ending quest for history, dates, locations, previous owners, period fashioin & wig styles, you name it, and the possibilities for storing this data is endless starting from a small, simple, inexpensive notebook, to an oversized, extravagant, costly, custom-made, embossed or stuffed, satin-covered scrapbook! My large quality binders with table of contents are catagorized by manufacturer and doll type, with a separate binder for “Armand Marsielle” only ha! Behind each tab beariing the doll’s name are plastic sleeves displaying the current outfit, wig, measurements for clothes, repair info and of course a few good photographs. I also have a binder called “Miscellaneous” filled with extra clothes & wigs also kept inside plastic sleeves so that my doll’s attire info can be easily updated in a flash just by swapping plastic sleeves! Top Fold-Close plastic sleeves are great for including small items such as addresses or clothing labels, ribbons & small stuff that you don’t want falling out of the binder. And, to go even a step further, by creating your own template, you can efficiently keep track of fun details like purchase date, purchase from & where and at what cost if this so tweaks your fancy. You’ve injected so much effort and love into you collection, it is only natural you would want these treasured little pieces of history passed on properly for many more generations to enjoy just as you have.
