I Hope I Don't Regret This

Posted by thedollcafe at Wednesday, March 19, 2008
From time to time I have sold some of my Barbies for varying reasons. At the time I am comfortable with the sale and usually buy another doll I want or use the money for pressing issues. I have decided to part with my Platinum Badgley Mischka Bride Barbie. At the time I bought her I was really into bride dolls and buying bridal dresses and redressing my dolls. A few days ago on the bc.com board I read that a member was seeking to trade the Badgley Mischka Bride for the Platinum Label Monique Lhuillier Bride. She is the blond version of the original doll only offered by FAO. I immediately thought oh, yes! I really want this this doll. But, I stopped and thought about it for a few days. For some reason I always regret selling or parting with my dolls. I don't regret it at the time, but I regret it later. The difference this time is that I will be trading for a doll I think is beautiful and that I've wanted. I was actually watching one on ebay when I saw the offer for the trade. Tonight I made the trade. Miss Badgley Mischka is boxed up and ready for her trip to Minnesota! I think she will be very happy in her new home and I will be very happy to add Miss Monique to my mm collection. I'm thinking this is one Barbie I will not regret parting with. . .

I can not sell one barbie that came with the 2004 Cali Guy Blaine when I bought him online. I really don't need her, neither I like her, but when I take her out of the drawer, she seems to pretty to sell her, so I stuff her back into the drawer where she only takes place from other dolls to hide away, as I don't play with her. I even listed her for sale on our Polish board but no one yet wants her.

I would keep her. Sometimes I try to sell some things and they don't sell. Sometimes it was meant to be, and then no regrets!
