Doll Show

My sister Becky asked me to go with her to a Doll Show in Hazel Park. I agreed, because these are always interesting. This time I brought my camera so you could enjoy it too.

There were the usual collections of dolls that you might expect:

Classics like Shirley Temple

Kewpie dolls that remind me of the expression Jeffrey used to make when he was a baby:

Barbies Displayed in boxes

Barbies in bags

Barbies with great outfits
Lots of Madame Alexander Dolls

I had this Alice in Wonderland doll. In fact I still do, but she is not nearly in this good condition:

I think that this is the Cinderella that my friend Susie had. I thought she was the best.

This doll had pansies, I thought she was so pretty:

We wondered if our cousin Pammy ever had these Pebbles and Bam-Dolls. If not, she would have wanted them.

For the guys

Some collections such as these

Paper Dolls too!

There were collections of shoes

And arms. (I know, kind of disturbing!)

And, of course, there was the weird:

At the end I bought Becky a doll for her Christmas Present. She has to wait until December 25

Go on eBay and see how much "I Dream of Jeannie" dolls are selling for - they are at least $50! Most are over $100! You got a deal! THANKS - but don't sell it!!!

Thanks for the photo tour! Loved it! Bam Bam looked kind of worried to me. My Mom loves pansies & dolls so I really want that one for her! The Cinderella is beautiful and I want her! The arms were kinda creepy and I had to do a double take to make sure they were actually "arms" and not "something else"! & your sister look so much alike I had to do a (another)double take!
