We’re doing my 87-year-old mother-in-law a favor by selling a few of her Barbie dolls on eBay.
There are lots and lots of Barbies on eBay, but not many of them have exquisitely hand-crocheted outfits in their wardrobes. My mother-in-law is a genius with the crochet needle.
I took pictures for this effort and grew contemplative – it’s a different world than the one in which these Barbies were the gift of choice for little girls.
And that’s a good thing. A thing to celebrate.
Barbie may still be with us, but the automatic “dolls for girls” association is an anachronism.
