My downsizing experience... |
In case you cannot sell all your extra bodies...
Any body that I do not want, be it model muse, fashionista, non-articulated silkstone, I force myself to find a head that I can or should get rid of and an outfit that I can or should get rid of, and I put them all together and make one complete doll for donation.
I also look at purses and shoes or other accessories to go with that doll.
Once I have a complete doll for donation, I put it in a plastic bag or I reuse the recent zippered fashionista containers. I have a shopping bag at home where I collect these frankendollies and Once I have several, I take them to a church charity shop that accepts toys.
This forces me to get rid of not just bodies, but everything else. It forces me to think and act on my collection. It also makes me feel good that I am reducing and reusing and the dolls that I donated are not too junky and allows the church store to sell them more easily.
I used to give these type of dolls to a friend's daughter but after she grew out of dolls, I continue to do this except now it is for charity shops.
