Live blogging the doll show... again!

Once again, I am live blogging the doll show!

Today's doll show is almost over, and it's been reasonably successful. I've made slightly more than the last show; and although I bought a new doll and some accessories, I spent last than half than I did last time. I'll walk away with more money this time, which is a good feeling indeed!

Although this is a doll and toy show, and usually has only a few good booths selling dolls, today's show has many more dolls than usual. A handful of booths have mostly Barbie dolls (which my mom and I don't deal in), and perhaps twice as many have vintage dolls. There is a good selection, and I have enjoyed browsing the booths and chatting with the sellers — some of whom I have known for several years!

Here is a picture of our booth the way it looked when we first set it up, before we sold anything:

Everything is winding down now, and I think we probably won't get any further sales today. I'll blog again later with the final tally, and of course with pictures of my new doll!

Thanks for visiting again! Yes, it was a great show. On the smaller side, but a lot of fun.

I'm looking forward to the bigger shows in Denver, which usually run in March and June, roughly. I don't know whether we'll sell at those shows, but at the very least we'll attend as buyers.

I love doll shows -- I just wish they ran more frequently in Denver!
