Collecting Dolls During a Recession

It's official now — we're in a recession — but that doesn't mean you can't continue collecting dolls. There are plenty of ways to collect dolls in a down economy, as this article on About.com reminds us.

I really like a lot of the suggestions on the list. The very first suggestion is basically to "play" with the dolls you already have by taking photographs, rearranging your displays, and sewing for your dolls. I "play" with my dolls all the time — as you can probably already tell from reading this blog!

I also already use several other suggestions on this list, such as adding clothing and accessories, getting fixer-uppers (my "project dolls"), and scouring eBay for bargains. I also collect certain dolls — in this case, Cosmopolitan Ginger — because they are easy to find at affordable prices.

Just because everyone else is pooh-poohing the economy doesn't mean that we can't continue to enjoy our hobbies!
