Bold 'questions' are what should be answered/addressed. The other stuff is just things to think about/issues to address within the context of the questions. Things to think about when answering the questions... Do you make assumptions in regards to someone's age when it comes to their collection? Younger and lots of dolls therefore you assume their parents bought them for them... Older and only a few, that they are new to the hobby... What is your assumption in regards to Income and quantity/quality of dolls? Lots of dolls, you assume they have a lot of disposable income... Only a few dolls, you assume they do not have a lot of disposable income... For collectors with a 'smaller amount' of money put into their collection... What assumptions do you have in regards to an 'expensive' collection/collector? -When the collector is older (Post college). -When the collector is younger (college or high school or younger). Do you think there is some sort of 'social' responsibility that a collector with a more 'expensive' collection has to you or the community? -Is it assumed they have more experience and should teach (sewing, re-string, answering questions, etc...) -If there is a contest where a 'doll' is a prize that they should not enter to give those with less money/ability to buy a doll better odds/chance. -They should help out with advice on how to save funds, maybe purchase clothes/jewelry you have made to earn funds, etc... -Is there a point where they are wasting their money on dolls, when they should be helping out charities, etc... For collectors with a 'fair amount' of money put into their collection.... Do you ever have people not understand where your funds for the collection comes from? -Is there 'assumptions' made about you/your collection, due to your age/job. -A misunderstanding of the 'work' you have put into earning funds. What do you say/tell people who seem to not understand or appreciate where your funds come from? What sort of social responsibility do you have towards your local BJD community (or community in general)?
