2010 Naples Doll Show


Hitty Doll by Gale Lyonsby Hitty Flora Sunny State Hittys

This past Saturday, I was privileged to attend the Region 9 UFDC Doll Show and Sale sponsored by the Naples Doll Club.  This is an awesome show which is well attended so it pays to get there early for the best bargains.

The admission price of $8 is a small price to pay for such a good time!  You will find modern dolls as well as museum-quality antique dolls and hard-to-find fabrics and trims. Some of the best doll artists and doll dealers exhibit at this show. Until his passing last year, Richard Wright, the doll expert of Antique Roadshow, was a regular.  He is greatly missed.

Photo highlights of my day at the doll show.  Enjoy!
