Foreign Barbie Dolls
Faith Husler’s Foreign Barbie doll collection is on display in our lobby. She began collecting Barbie dolls for the neighborhood girls as she had two sons and when little girls visited she only had boy toys to offer. What started off as a kind gesture quickly became a hobby and before long she had began collecting Princess Dolls. The Princess Dolls however were for her personal collection and she did not let the young girls play with them.
Before long her husband caught on and began purchasing her dolls for birthdays and Christmas. She scours thrift stores and yard sells for dolls that she usually caps at $20 though some are worth hundreds. Dolls are worth more if kept in the boxes but she enjoys pulling them out to look at them. Some of her favorite foreign dolls include the ones from the Danish Court, Ireland and the Portuguese Empire. Be sure to stop by to enjoy the beautiful display.
Please come by the Walkertown Branch Library to see the Foreign Barbie doll display of Faith Hustler.
The Foreign Barbie doll collection will be on display until the end of February.
