Sometime in January 2007, my friend, Mary, who had introduced me to the wonderful world of Asian ball joint dolls, took me to a private meet up in Simi Valley. Simi Valley is in Southern California, a little outside of Los Angeles. Her friend was hosting the meet up at her private residence. She had just come back from Japan and had goodies for everyone who showed up. It was a huge doll meet up – event with about a dozen collectors in the Simi Valley gated community town house, you could only imagine the value of all the dolls (and their accessories!) combined.
Scarlet Rhapsody doll in attendance was Marguerite (Kid Delf Nara) as she was my only doll at the time.
