New Barbie sale website and a new Michael Augustyniak book

August 27, 2013

You all know Michael Augustyniak, the amazing author who wrote Barbie books such as Collector’s Encyclopedia of Barbie Doll Collector’s Editions or Barbie Doll Photo Album 1959 to 2009. I love his books and I know you love them too. It looks like his sister is also a Barbie doll lover and she has just launched ZiggyLady.com, a website where you can find a unique Barbie or Ken vintage collectible, a great read, a family-friendly movie, a nostalgic board game from the past or just wish to browse the virtual shelves of their eclectic offerings.

Right now he’s finishing an exhaustive book on all Ken dolls (and all male members of Barbie doll’s family) and their complete wardrobes from 1961 through 2013. The book is called “Collector’s Encyclopedia of Ken Dolls and Fashions 1961-2013” and will be available in 2014. Isn’t this exciting? Ken does deserve a book just about him and his friends. I’ll keep you updated on the progress of this book but, in the meantime, be sure to check ZiggyLady.com.
