I have been collecting Marilyn Monroe memorabilia for over 25 years now.  I remember the very first book I ever owned was a paperback of Marilyn Monroe by Steinem/Barris that I got for 25 cents.  I was immediately drawn to the photos of Marilyn and her life story.  When I was a teenager I started collecting Marilyn books and collector plates.  

I was an early adopter of Ebay which I discovered in 1996. I remember being the most excited about the Marilyn Monroe dolls that were available.  So I started collecting them starting with the DSI and Tristar dolls.  I lived in the USA for 1 year. It was there that I got to see Franklin Mint Marilyn dolls in person for the first time and started to collect them as well.  You can see my doll collection HERE

Over the years I have amassed a collection I am very proud of.  Of course, my tastes have changed as I've matured.  The past five years have really shown a change in my collecting habits.  I'm now at the point where I would rather spend money on items that are truly rare and special instead of mass-produced commercial trinkets.
