Doll Show Time!
Today was the November doll show here in Atlanta. Hard to believe it's here again. I had saved up a little money this time, but I didn't want to buy anything. I was just looking forward to seeing all of my doll friends. As you can see I found a few goodies that came home with me. I have a few blurry pictures, because I shot these without my glasses.
I have three favorite vendors that I sought out immediately. Two were there and they did not disappoint. At my first favorite vendor I purchased 5 dolls, lots of jewelry and a few outfits for $1 each.
Doll #1 is Top Model Summer who is on an articulated body - $10
Doll #2 is an AA Christie doll on an articulated body - $5
The seller had restyled her hair and she now has a very unique look.
Doll #3 is the Shakira doll on a regular body - $5
Doll #4 is a restyled Modern Circle doll completely dressed - $10
Doll #5 is a Fashion Fever Kurt with an extra outfit - $10 (incredible)
A closer look at the outfit.
My dolls are finally getting some jewelry - $1 per set.
The cute little doggies were 3 for $1.
I can't wait to handwash these and start using them.
There are about 20 vintage pieces in the pile.
The next booth I stopped at had quite a few Fashion Fever dolls, and the Barbie Hotel for cheap. I was determined not to buy any more dolls, but when I saw this Asian Lea for $12, I couldn't say no.
And since I was writing a check for Asian Lea, I decided to throw in this Gabrielle for $3.
Two lawn chairs and a high chair - 3 for $5
Boxed Barbie Salon - $5
Finally a spa! I've been wanting a spa for awhile. I never got around to making one. This one was - $1.
Afternoon Snack Playset - $5
Skipper Sleep and Study - $5
This really nice cabinet would look nice in a jewelry store. - $2
All of these kitchen items were in the plastic bag. All of these, including everything in the bag, were a freebie, since I was such a good customer.
I bought an articulated Stacy doll for her body, from this vendor, too. She had a TON of dressed dolls in a bucket for $2 each. I'm sure I could have found a lot of articulated bodies, but I just couldn't look at any more dolls.
So once again I scored big at the doll show. Wow, I almost forgot. Robert Tonner was there, too. He had a booth selling some of his beautiful dolls. Have you seen his James Dean doll? That was my first time seeing him. Fantastic. Lizette was there in all her glory. He had sold quite a bit by the time I got around to seeing his tables. Isn't that funny? Robert Tonner was last on my list to see. LOL!
