I can't believe I didn't make this connection the other day, when I blogged about collecting during a recession, but restringing dolls is the ultimate way to enjoy your hobby during a recession!
Knowing how to restring dolls can benefit you in two of the areas that article talks about. It gives you a way to enjoy your dolls, by allowing you to make repairs that perhaps get overlooked when you are able to buy more. Being handy with dolls also enables you to buy more of the fixer-uppers the article recommends buying when you can't afford as much.
And luckily, my ebook How to Restring a Strung Doll is only $2.99, which makes learning how to restring the perfect affordable way to maintain your doll collecting hobby during a recession! :o)
