Doll Reader + News About Catrina
Someone posted the following on the DoA forums. I'm not sure what to make of it, but I thought it was blog worthy so here it is:
"I wasn't going to post here anymore but yes, I do know something about this and if she does relocate I will be straight in my car to see her personally and get a bl**dy explanation for you all. I haven't aired this before because it seemed like personal information and I still don't know if I should be making it public, but Catrina, when she phoned me back at the end of November, said that she was seeing a man who lived just down the coast from me here in North Wales and asked if I could find out anything about resin casting in the UK because she was thinking of relocating. I have been very puzzled when her husband has been mentioned so much lately as she gave me the impression she has been with this man for some time, perhaps the husband is a business partner? Not really relevant I suppose. I do wonder if she is thinking of re-registering her business in the UK and trying to wipe off all these debts? I don't even know if that is possible. Sorry if the mods feel this is inappropriate, I'm just responding to a direct question from someone who is still owed money. Please remove if this is inappropriate."
Here is the article (sent by another person who got the issue of Doll Reader) who retyped the article and was kind enough to send it to me so I could post it here!

BJDs MADE EASY
Dollfair brings artist's works from around the world to your doorstep.
Dollfair International, one of the leading names in the BJD market today, ensures the work of Korean and European doll artists is easily accessible to all collectors. Representing names like Limhwa Doll of Korea and Cerisedolls by artist Lillycat of France, Dollfair offers collectors some of the most highly sought after and hard to find BJDs around.
Just two years ago, Dollfair began working with a select number of dealers, jointly producing special custom limited editions via its Enchantment Doll line. The first partner was The Doll Market of Greensboro, N.C. "This is an exciting collaboration between artists and retailers to develop a custom identity and look for each shop, in the spirit of creativity expressed with ball-jointed dolls," says Catherine Sanders, CEO and creative director of Dollfair.
Cristy Stone of Xtreme Doll, who is well recognized for her amazing face-ups, has recently partnered with Dollfair, and last year Dollfair announced its own production of dolls by Marina Bychkova of Enchanted Dolls. Today, Dollfair is now opening its doors to producing dolls for other artists worldwide.
For 2011, Dollfair plans to open a second location in Wales, United Kingdom, making accessibility even easier by shipping dolls within the European Union. It's not always easy to locate that perfect BJD, and if you've found it, it's not always easy to get. Dollfair's relationships with artists worldwide and ease of access make the search for that perfect BJD just that much easier.
