Doll Show

Last weekend it was time for another Doll Show! I just wait for these. The event has been moved to a new location...the Monach Hotel which is very nice. The lighting is good and the place is roomy.

There is so much to see at these shows. Eye candy for sure! I was good and didn't buy a doll this time. I did find some treasures and will share them in future posts. I hope you enjoy viewing my photos.

Valentines is coming. I think it would be fun to have a white or red feather tree like this one!

The Tootsie Toy metal dollhouse furniture just fascinates me. I didn't need this set but REALLY liked it. SO cute!

An older lady had this dolly for sale. All her dolls were baby dolls and it was so cute . She loved them all.

This was a sweet little trio!

Another pretty lady.

Here's my sweet Jimmy with a former customer of his when he worked in the pharmacy. Clint is retired now too and his wife Karen is a doll person. She has just gotten into miniatures and dollhouses, so we see them at the miniature shows as well as the doll shows. It's become quite fun.

This is a lovely book...the translated title is The Queen of the Dolls.  It was retold, translated and the lovely photos were hand tinted by Edith Bartholomew in 1965. It's the story of a beautiful doll in a doll shoppe....the Queen of the dolls. She lives in a doll shoppe but is never chosen as she is too expensive. It's a sweet story.

These dolly gloves are one of the treasures I bought. They are made of leather and are a very soft pink color.

As always, I had a most wonderful time at the show.

Sounds wonderful, it is rare to have a show like that locally so I love to take a stroll with you and enjoy some of the great stalls. Thank you for sharing.

What a wonderful way to spend your day. Treasures to look at. Dolls were pretty. Glad you found something that you enjoyed and look forward to seeing it when you share it later.

Oh I would have had a wonderful time at the show too! So many wonderful antique dolls, I adore the Victorian one's! The book reminds me of Corduroy, same story line but about a teddy bear. I wonder who copied off of who? :)
Your doll gloves are just precious. Thanks for taking us along to the show.
Have a great weekend,

I sure enjoyed seeing this Linda. I have never been to a doll show but this looks like great fun. I see Gina left a comment above. I will be meeting her soon when we finally get to Missouri. She has a doll house and I've heard it is outstanding!

What a lovely doll show it was!! I am in love with photos. My daughter just loves attending such shows. Recently I took her to a Doll fest at one of local event venues. She enjoyed a lot in this fest and it was quite tough to get her out of the venue.
