Barbie Turns 50 ! !

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!
