Well after all that time spent in preparation for the big event I was amazed
at how quickly the day itself flew by! It was literally over before I knew it and so by
the time I set out to take my photos, many of the displays and vendors were already
breaking down and packing up shop. I did manage a few shots here and there
including this one of the cradle finished off with a sweet baby!
The wardrobe displays were a thing to behold...just look at this one.
Now that is one lucky doll!
These outfits were made with the most exquisite of stitches.
And here...why an ensemble for every occasion!
Since my booth was looking a little worse for wear by the end here's an earlier picture I took during set up practice at home. Of course Grandmother's dollhouse is missing along with a few goodies I added in to fill in the gaps but you'll get the general feel I think.
One of the hardest things about being a vendor for the first time was staying put at my booth while so many goodies were beckoning me to come have a look see. I was quite unnerved at
the thought that perhaps I'd be leaving the doll show without finding a treasure
to take home with me this year.
I needn't have worried however, for this time around my treasure found me!
She had positioned herself atop a packing pile to await my frantic photo taking pass by.
She was impossible to miss with all that sweetness glowing bright.
I knew immediately we were kindred friends.
She makes me smile so every time I see her!
