I searched for this topic but could not locate one. The question I have for those with larger collections (and to illuminate what could become a future challenge for new collectors) is: How do you (or would you) approach "refining" a BJD collection when you like them all? Here is a bit (okay, a very long piece) of background information about why I am asking this question. After speaking with a number of collectors over the years, I know I am not the only person with this challenge. And, let's be honest in that it is a great place to be in in many respects, because I do not regret buying any of them. I had the privilege of enjoying them and then let them move on to new homes. But, as I get older and wish to direct energies in other directions, I do not have the time and energy for all of my dolls. So, for the past two years I have been slowly refining the collection. I started with selling boys as I decided to focus solely on girls. Then, I decided to focus on my "core aesthetic" and saw so many beautiful girls go in YoSD, SDM and SD sizes. I referred to it as a "like" versus "love" kind of enjoyment of the doll. I basically decided by choosing dolls I did not want to restyle anymore (it was easier to sell than to restyle them). Then, I decided further by analysing whether I felt "guilty" when I did not wish to interact with a particular doll because I actually preferred to interact with others. Now, though, it is becoming harder and my previous approaches are not working. I used to have over fifty BJD and now have a little over twenty. Although it feels like a lot of dolls, I am having a really difficult time trying to "refine" it further. It is time to make some really hard decisions about how "refined" I want my collection to be and how focussed I would like it to become. I do not want to sell them all, because I am not leaving the hobby, but I also do not want to make a wrong decision about selling a doll. The reason for that is that selling the wrong doll could potentially kill the enjoyment of the hobby for me. I do not want to go to "play dolls" and then find myself pining for a doll I no longer have as that could result in me simply selling all my dolls. Metaphorically, I perceive a doll collection as a knitted sweater. Pull at the wrong string and you get a big gaping hole in it and the whole thing is no longer salvageable. It is simply better to start afresh again, and I do not want to do that after fourteen years in the hobby and being at a point where I really like all my dolls. Honestly, I would never be able to create the same kind of collection again. So, how do you (or would you) approach "refining" a BJD collection when you like them all? And, where would you define the "stop point" where the collection is as refined as it can become for that point in time?
