Welcome to the official website of the Windy City Collector Barbie Doll
Club! We would like to take a few minutes to introduce ourselves to
you so that you can see how much fun we have.
The Windy City Collectors Barbie Doll Club was founded in March of
1992 by Julie Bronski. Because of her love for Barbie, Julie wanted to
create a forum for Chicago-area Barbie doll collectors to interact. So
she passed out flyers at doll shows and placed an ad in Barbie Bazaar
magazine. Seventeen years later, the Windy City Collector’s Barbie
Doll Club is still going strong with Windy City being one of the best
known Barbie doll clubs in the Midwest.
From the beginning, the general purpose of the club would be for
collectors and lovers of Barbie to share their passion with fellow
enthusiasts. We have since broadened our audience to include those
who love fashion dolls, but Barbie is still our favorite doll.
In addition to monthly meetings where we get together to share and
show-off our latest treasures, we have an annual dinner and raffle.
Proceeds benefit a chosen charity. Past benefactors have included
CAFF, Make-A-Wish of Illinois and PAWS. Each Christmas season,
we have a toy drive where we collect and deliver toys to area shelters.
Additionally, we have serviced the community in other ways including
food drives and sending supplies to the Katrina recovery effort.
