As people are getting ready to do some travelling for their dolls, I got to wondering - how many of us are going to a doll show or convention?  You don't have to post the exact date - just the month would be fine.  I've already gone to my first one in April - the PNW Doll Expo in Seattle.  I had a wonderful time and spent al the money I saved for it. :>  Anyway, let's hear about all the places you are going!!  P.S.  Does anyone know what's in Austin next year????

E-mail me when people leave their comments –


  • I am going to the International Doll and Teddy Show in Orlando next week, just for one day to the sales room.  Then I will be attending the

    Modern Doll Collectors Convention, (MDCC) in New Orleans in September.  That is always exciting, so many great doll artists there, including Dianna and her gang!  Loads of fun!

  • Great question Laura!  I am heading off to the Madame Alexander Doll Club convention in Utah on Friday.  I will be gone for two weeks.  I won't have access to my email while I am gone  I look forward to reading about all of your doll adventures and your dolls' adventures when I return.

  • No doll conventions for me, and I'm not even sure when the next doll shows are in the Seattle area.  I know the next one in Bellevue, WA, is Aug. 26th, but that one is always on a Sunday, and by the time I get done with church, etc., it's almost too late for me to head over there.  I haven't been to the Puyallup show in quite a few years.  The Seattle Doll Club's show is in April, and I missed that one, too.

    Funny, when we had shows in Lynnwood (about 10 min. from me) and Monroe, I was at almost every one, even had tables at them, for a number of years!  I kind of miss those shows.

  • Hi Laura,

    I will be attending the MADC Convention in Salt Lake City next week. This is a fun location for me as I live right outside Park City, Utah and will be able to drive back forth to my hone each night very easily. We do not get many doll conventions in the west anymore so this is a very welcome change.

  • Laura, I too would love to know what’s coming to Austin next year!  Do you know something that I don’t know?

    • I just found out it's a BJD convention and the dates are August 29-31.  I think it's at the Omni. I was just told there was something in Austin.  I guess this gives us time to save up.  I don't know if I'll be able to go - if anyone is, please let me know!!  Thanks!!



  • I would love to attend the MDCC in New Orleans, especially with this year's theme.  It might be easier to set aside the money if I'd stop buying dolls! Lol!!!

  • I returned yesterday from a Doll Convention in Minneapolis.  I had such a great time.

    I am all booked up to go to the MDCC in New Orleans.  I am excited but nervous as I have never been before.

    • That is so kind, Sissy.   I am sure I'll have some questions before I leave the UK.   I'll look out for you when I get there.


    • Great!  Be sure to attend the new comers meeting.  I plan to be there too, it is fun!
