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. Twenty-four years later, the
Windy City Collector’s Barbie Doll Club is still going strong with
Windy City being one of the biggest and best known Barbie doll
clubs in the country.
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 all 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 disaster relief
