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.
