  1. There are too many dealers willing to prey on a novice's ignorance of the product for which he or she is bidding. The transaction and bidding process is legitimate, but you may end up paying more for a Barbie than it's worth.

  2. Awesome Picture. Nice quick reference. I was looking for the term OOAK? Thats when a vintage Barbie Restoration has been modified to be something new a One Of A Kind
