Did you know that Barbie is 50 this year?
I didn't realize it until I was walking down the street on my lunch hour and saw Barbies in a ceramics studio!
Yes, Jonathons had Barbie ~ wearing designer Bob Mackie dresses ~ on display.
I actually stopped in my tracks. lol
Then I went inside to see why these beautiful designer Barbies were in the window.
And it turns out the Barbies were part of a local collector's private collection and she was selling some of them and a portion of the sales was to go to a charity.
So of course I bought a ticket to the opening of the show! And here are some of the Barbies that were there.
The 2 I might have been interested in purchasing - Barbie as Sandy in Grease (in black 'leather') and one of the Harley Davidson Barbies - were unfortunately not part of this collection.
...that's okay, it means I can keep dreaming of finding them for a very reasonable bargain-basement price!
