We left Mexico in 1994 when Hubby got a job in Quebec City (Canada). We had to leave our friends behind, but were very happy to be back in Canada. I brought my dolls with me of course, at this time they were fully part of my life.
in November 1995, an add in the news paper was calling for craft vendors for a show due to December of the same year. Encouraged by Hubby I registered, rented a table, and for the first time in my life, I sale my dolls (plus some packed outfits ) openly, officially to the public. It was not a charity event, they were not friends coming to say hello and encourage or compliment me and buying a doll or 2 for the sole purpose of sharing some taught and giving some money for charity purpose, they were customers, real one, with all the good and bad coming with it.
Some weeks before living Quebec City, window-shopping in a mall, I discovered with delight a doll taller than Barbie. She was amazingly beautiful, very "50th", her body was fashion as well but with a woman idea,
I fall in love with Gene Marshall Created by Mel Odom.
those last dresses where sold as dressed dolls.
