Doll Show and a Little Vacation

Here's a video:
 


Here's some pics. ^--^


This was the only thing I purchased, a Harley Ken for $10. Everyone else probably has one of these, but I wasn't collecting when he came out so I was all, "GASP!" when I saw him.

I didn't photograph my booth since it was the same setup as last time. The show was great and I was so happy to sell out of the 50+ dolls I brought. One lady bought 23 dolls! She said they were for her grandkids. All I could think was, "Dang, Lady! How many grandkids you got?!" I gave her a stack of clothes for the dolls for free. She deserved it!

Per usual, I carry a doll with me when I travel but I rarely have time to take photos or I forget about it. This time I made an effort and took a few pics at the amusement park. People looked at me funny but no one said anything.

  1. I can't believe you took more outside shots, Muff. I know how you don't particularly like doing it. Good for you! The doll looks good. What amusement park is that?

    1. Thanks, Jaye! I went to Universal Studios in Orlando. I figured people would be too busy enjoying themselves to come over and bother me so I felt okay taking photos. I also wasn't laying on the ground or anything and I stood in some out of the way spots.

  2. You're so brave! I would love to take outdoor pics of my dolls but I'm afraid of the stares I know I'll get.

    1. Champagne, I don't mind the stares so much. It's the people who actually approach you that bug me. That didn't happen this time though, so yay!

  3. Obejrzałam film z wielkim zainteresowaniem! Cieszę się, że sprzedałaś wybrane lalki! Ken jest naprawdę fantastyczny!
    Lalka w parku rozrywki wygląda bardzo ładnie i naturalnie! Fajnie, że odważyłaś się fotografować ją wśród ludzi.
    To powinno wzbudzać tylko pozytywne wrażenia :-)
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie!

    1. Thanks, Maricha! I always feel like I'm in the middle of a wonderful museum when I go to a doll show.

    1. Thanks, Roxanne! Orlando is only a few hours away. I should take the time to go more often.

  6. What a fun time and beautiful dolls! I would like to sell at one but probably come away with more than I sold!

    1. LOL, Grandmommy! That was my problem the first time I started selling and then I went cold turkey. That Ken doll was the first one I've purchased at a show in the last two years. He was worth breaking my streak.

  7. Applause! Congrats on getting the 3rd HD Ken! I don't have him - hadn't wanted him, but he looks so deliciously poseable ... and cute! Congrats also on selling all your dolls. And having a good time photographing outside. Yay, Muff!

    1. D7ana, it's not like I don't have that face sculpt, but he was worth the articulation and that tattoo.

    1. Good luck, Georgia Girl! I was so stoked when I sold all those dolls. When that lady came and purchased the rest of the dolls that I had I did a little happy dance in my head.

  9. Wow, you sold them all?! That's amazing! How did you do on your clothes/accessories?

    Your doll looks like she had a great time at Universal Studios! I especially like the composition of the third picture. I'm way too nervous to take my dolls out in public for pics often, and a crowded place like a theme park would probably do me in, lol!

    1. Glad you sold all your dolls and what a great place to have a vacation!

    2. Presto, I had a huge stack of thrift dolls since there is usually only 1 doll out of 3 in the bag that I want. I've been carting those dolls back and forth to shows for years. I still have bunches of dolls at home though, lol.

      I took less clothes this time and more accessories. According to my handy dandy sales app I sold 146 accessories.

    3. That is a lot of accessories!

  10. Ollie, I love Islands of Adventure. It's my favorite theme park. I'd go every weekend if I could afford the gas.

  11. Congrats on not having any dolls to pack up and take back home! And I don't have Harley Ken, so I was all, "GASP!" when I saw you got him for $10. I'm glad you had some fun at the theme park, too. We're going back to Orlando this year and Universal Studios is on our list.

    1. Thanks, Jewell! I think that HD Barbie & Ken set came out in 2009 and I didn't start collecting until 2012. If I would have seen one I probably would have been tempted to get him for full price back then.

  12. So jealous of that Ken! I wish we had doll shows like that where I am. :(

    1. Last Alliance, maybe you could organize a get together for your area. Show off some of your ponies!
