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 two annual programs to benefit the
community. Each year, we sponsor a Doll Display
and Raffle as part of the Our Favorite Doll Show.
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
