Collecting Tips

11 year old me and my dollies
Hi dollies!

I believe I have been collecting dolls, mostly cheap play line, since I was small. The photo to the right is the only doll-related photo I was able to salvage from our old house, as of yet.

Life went on and some of these dollies have been given away or destroyed by my younger brothers or god knows where they went, except for Diane or Shasha (Mom insists he name's Diane, but I know the fashion doll at the center among the three is Diane. But oh well...)

Then I got back to collecting, this time as an adult.
And doll collecting has never been as easy as when you were as a child collector as we now pay bills, raise children and maintain sanity, among other things haha!

So I thought why not ask around the wonderful dolly community for tips and tricks as to how to live a doll collector's life way easier.

In these posts/topics, we discuss how each one manages to deal with each and every aspect of doll collecting. From these posts, we get ideas from generous and wonderful doll collectors all around the globe. 

As of this writing, we have already started tackling the basics, but for sure there will be more to talk about as we follow our journey to collecting dolls. Here are some of the topics already discussed:
