Fun day in Salt Lake!  Great weather and lots of wonderful dolls, teddy bears and all of their fun accessories.  Unfortunately the fairgrounds has made some edicts that are uncomfortable for our show, so we are now considering if we can live with the new rules or if we need to move.  More to come on that subject!

Amazing Weekend at the Puyallup WA show!

Fabulous exhibitors, enthusiastic collectors . .. the event in Puyallup continues to amaze!  There were more breathtaking antiques than ever, more creativity from the artist group, more excellent examples of every conceivable type of doll – I couldn’t stop taking pictures.

I know that the children enjoyed the activity at the Schoettler booth, we LOVED Mary Kellomeimi’s Nutcracker display, and the BJD meet-up was fun.   I want to comment on the industry knowledge that was in the room, I learned so much from both the dealers and from the collectors – just one of the MANY reasons not to miss this show!

Pleasanton Show Raises the Bar

To all that participated or attended this show, ‘Was this a great show or what?!’  I loved seeing exceptional artists from the area; Donna Larsen, Lee Feikert, Stephanie Blythe, Joanne Callandar and so many more.  Our teddy bear and critter area has grown and I just love seeing what the artists bring.  I can honestly say that I have not ever seen as many mint vintage dolls at a show, so gorgeous. I’m pretty sure that the selection of clothes, wigs and accessories rivaled the largest shows anywhere. And what can I say about the antiques.  Honestly, I think I drooled at table after table.  We’ll be back on May 16, 2015 – worth the wait and definitely worth traveling for!
