I have never had much of an affinity for Sasha dolls, but I have always had an affinity for high-quality foreign dolls, so when my chance came up to own a Sasha, I could not turn it down.

My Sasha

This is the Sasha I acquired, practically mint in box. So, how did this acquisition occur? My New Year's Resolution has been to raise enough money on eBay to pay for a vacation to Disneyland this summer, so I have been trolling Craigslist for deals. I came across a lady who used to run a doll hospital, and she was selling all of her stuff. Most of the stuff was in terrible shape, but this one diamond in the rough was there. I couldn't resist, so I took home a car FULL of funky smelling dolls, boxes full of eyes, tattered clothes, twenty-something patterns, and my new Sasha. Luckily, I have nearly liquidated the remainder of the doll hospital, and thus ended up with Sasha for free.

I must say, I don't love her hair, but I like her quality. She's quite solid and heavy, and her little dress is cute. The skin tone is also very unique.

I don't know that I would buy other Sashas in the future, but I will definitely keep this one. She's a fun doll to add to my collection.
