Barbie, all dolled up, at Esse

  • Oooh, bride Barbie. Would have loved that gown!

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.
