Keeping a running list of changes to my collection has been a major improvement in my purchasing habits. Anytime a new doll comes into my home, she is added to the list - regardless of whether or not she is removed from her box (helps provent me using the excuse "I forgot I had her …."). If a new doll comes in that is removed from box before another doll, she is moved up in the list. I have only added 11 dolls to my collection and it is almost halfway through the year! I have sold 12, so I am in a good place.
I purchased the next doll in my collection nude to see what all the fuss was about. Her secondary market price consistently runs about $500, so getting her nude was a good compromise for my finances. She was an exclusive to the retail store Montaigne Market in France. She was released in an edition size of 300 and cost 150 euros plus shipping. Here is the stock photo of Montaigne Market Elise, property of Integrity Toys.

But I digress … which I often do … this entry was supposed to showcase Montaigne Market Elise, so how about one last closeup. I think she's awesome. So awesome, in fact, I didn't preorder the new Elise from the Spring 2014 FR line. This is probably one of the very best uses of the Elise mold Integrity Toys has ever produced. It will be near impossible to beat!
