After Convention–The Doll Hangover
I have run into this before with the National Barbie Convention so I have some experience with it. I must say though, the hangover from the Fashion Royalty Convention was and is…MAJOR. I think with Barbie conventions in the past, I have always had to ship my loot home so there was a delay between the actual convention and when I received all the goodies at home. This time, I was smart and packed a duffel bag for my clothing and was able to pack all the dolls in my suitcase. I am a deboxer so I had the luxury of deboxing at the hotel and having room to pack everything and take it home immediately. The instant gratification of all that convention swag was a dolly high such as I had never experienced before. I’m still reeling.
Here is the third day’s accumulation picture.
Now add in Day one and Day two…….
And here is the resulting doll explosion when I arrived home. Each item was removed from the suitcase and shared with my daughter….a show and tell of my convention experience.
And when we had exceeded the capacity of the Family Room, it spilled into the kitchen as well.
How on earth did I manage to get all this home??!! Sometimes it’s just better to accept and not ask LOL!
