Barbie, all dolled up, at Esse

Marsha Stone's collection of Barbie dolls goes on exhibit Sunday at Esse Purse Museum at 1510 S. Main St., next door to the Root Cafe.

A reception from 1-4 p.m. at “Barbie®: The Vintage Years, 1959-1972” will include Barbie cookies and mincupcakes. Being vintage myself, I once had a Barbie with black hair in a ponytail. She arrived in a black and white knit swimsuit; I also got the fancy black sequined gown. She kept kicking off her shoes, as I recall. It's hard to stand in heels when you have a 50-inch bust. I believe I got a bubble-coiffed blonde Barbie later. I was one of a trillion, so there should be lots of interest in seeing the show. 

Esse is open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is $10 ($8 seniors and students). The gift shop, which is free, is lots of fun. Also on Sunday just a few doors down: The Bernice Farmers Market. Thank Anita Davis for both SOMA-lifting venues.
