It is your doll but the paint is falling off and you want to restore her then do so . But another doll comes along and you just love that old look to her . Then do not restore her . These are your choices and your doll . But what about the value of the doll ? Restoring the doll could add value ,not restoring leaves the doll with a low value and being worth only what you paid for the doll . And yet again that old beat up doll in the correct setting could sell a picture or even your doll !! Lots to decide !! Enjoy !!
