|Managing Your Doll Collection With the Theme Method|
|Written by Alison Rasmussen|
How do you deal with organizing your collection and your ever-growing wish list of dolls? Develop a theme, or better yet, several themes.
First, a theme will help you organize your dolls and help narrow your collection. Second, themes help you shop for items that fit with your current collection, and help justify those purchases. For example, “This doll will fit in perfectly with my Alice in Wonderland collection.”
If your favorite designer comes out with a new line that you must add to your collection, and they don’t fit in anywhere, simply add a new theme.
For example, the Upside Down Oz collection by Goodreau Doll is just wonderful. So I’ve decided I love dolls with unusual hair color. So I add a new theme:
You can add several of your existing dolls (for example, a Wicked Witch doll or a BJD with a faux fur wig) to that theme and display them together.
