The Christmas Doll and Teddy Bear show

Yesterday on October 26th, 2019, was the Christmas Doll and Teddy bear show here in Richmond Virginia. There were loads of gorgeous dolls. Like my favorites, Madame Alexander Cissy dolls, vintage of course of course. 

The ladies of my Va. Fashion doll club were there selling too. They sell every year. 

This year I purchased a vintage Ken doll and a pair of black vintage Ken shoes, I want to use my vintage dolls to do a Thanksgiving / Pilgrim scene. I just have to purchase the pattern off of ebay. Now that I have a Vintage Ken, to complete with my vintage Midge, Ricky, and Skipper, and Barbie, I can do the vintage costumes. Now that I think about it, I should have purchased a vintage Allan. 

These are some of the vintage dolls for sale in our club's booth...

and more dolls at other booths in the show---

There were also Sylvia Butler's gorgeous dolls and costumes for the Bru and Huret dolls as well as the Bluettes. I love stopping and talking to her. (I am still saving for my Dollspart Huret body for my Huret head I purchased from her. ) 

I did not take any pics of my loot, not much as I did not buy much. I will take some pics of my Ken on another day. Enjoy!
