Barbie for big girls.

NBDCC Convention News–Sitting this one out.

First and Foremost let me wish Barbie a very Happy 61st Birthday today!!!  In honor of her birthday I thought it would be a good day to announce some news and give some information on a fun sale that Miss Hilda ( Bellissima Couture) and I have cooked up for Miss Barbie.

Some of you may have heard already but I wanted to put this out there for everyone. Hilda and I will not be attending the National Barbie Doll Collectors Convention this year in Las Vegas.  The reasons for us not going are varied.  I want to assure everyone that it is not due to any health related issues.  My family and I are doing very well and I am happy to report that all of my daughter’s scans have been blissfully clear and without any evidence of cancer since 2018.  Sooooo grateful!!!  Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.  They are working!!

We are very sad to not be seeing everyone.  This community of collectors is what drives Hilda and I to do what we do.   Because we love and value this collector community so much we have been coming up with some fun ways to offer the same products we normally offer at Barbiecon but via our online shops.  This way everyone can participate and not just those attending the convention.  For those attending NBDCC, please know we are very sorry to miss seeing and visiting with you at the convention.  I am most sorry to miss that one on one connection.  It was and is always the highlight of going to the convention for me.

Now that we are announcing, both Hilda and I wanted to offer up a special sales event on Barbie’s birthday to begin our series of online events leading up to the NBDCC.   The plan is to offer a couple different capsule collections from now until June.  These capsule collections will include fashions by Hilda (Bellissima Couture).  Some will have unique OOAK fabrics we have developed together.  Offerings will include luxury accessories that I have done to compliment the fashions.  Also, this means {cue drumroll please!}….my Etsy shop is opening!!!!

My Etsy shop is ITFashionDollStudio and should be open by Friday if not before.  I will send the link via blog post on Friday or before once it is open.

If you are interested in the fashions, head on over to Hilda’s blog (Bellissima Couture). She is selling the dresses and the dresses with bag as a set.  If you are interested in the accessories ( bag sets, individual bags, hat boxes and pillows) please visit my Etsy shop when it opens this Friday.

    • Hello! Sorry for the delay. I put a hold on the site for the time being given current events. When things have calmed down a bit I will advertise the opening of the site on the blog. It will be announced there first so keep an eye out.
