9-24-07 Talking Drama Adele
Tomorrow we leave for Pittsburgh and the Fashion Royalty Convention. I am very excited. I still have to do all my packing but everything else is in order. I don't think I'd do very well if I had to fly because of all the clothing we're taking, etc. I'm not sure how people who are doing major room sales handle it unless they ship cartons to the hotel in advance. That's what I would do. As I looked around in my studio I realized that I could do room sales to get rid of the junk. But who wants to hang in the room and maybe no one wants to buy junk. It would be better to give it away.
I will be returning home with two of my dolls that people worked on, seven optional purchase dolls and one convention doll. I have already created eBay auctions that will automatically go up on the 25th for pre-sale purposes. I will keep Bob's extra convention doll (maybe) for possible future trades.
This is an expensive event!
Below is a picture of the doll I didn't think I'd be able to get at all. She is Talking Drama Adele and she is stunning.
We haven't gotten our first Club doll yet! It's already the end of September. I have two coming - they are Vanessas. And, if that wasn't enough, there will be a winter line as well. I don't know how long I can continue with this.
I've been buying some other items as well - Barbie items. Why? I don't know. Actually, I like the Barbie Millicent Roberts clothing so I have most of that line. I try to keep up with the purchases by selling, and I do sell a lot of merchandise. There are two collectors who think I am their favorite store. That is funny!
