International Black Doll Show & Sale May 26 in Philly

If you are in the Philadelphia area on May 26, take time to visit the Pennsylvania Convention Center,12th and Arch Streets for the 23rd International Black Doll Show and Sale from 10am to 5pm.  The show is sponsored by the Philadelphia Doll Museum and   Admission is $7 for adults. Click here and get a coupon for $1 off. A thank you shout-out to doll maker Tonya Montegu and quilter Angela for sharing news of the show with me. Drop a note if you are going to this doll show! I may even take the train up.  Enjoy!
Special thanks to the (very cool!) Black Doll Collecting blog for correcting me on the location of the show - which will be at the PA Convention Center.

Hi Kyra,

The Philadelphia Doll Museum's curator, Barbara Whiteman, is the show host; however, the show will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center as opposed to the museum.

Thank you for the update on the doll show place! I would have otherwise shown up at the museum (smile!).

Will you be at the show? Would love to read and cross post your impressions of this sure-to-be fabulous exhibit!

Best, Kyra

Hi Kyra,

No, I won't be at the show this year. I have attended past shows (2004 and 2005) which were both fabulous. They afforded me an opportunity to meet, face to face, many of my online doll friends. We had a blast, especially in 2005. I don't do much traveling these days, but I would urge anyone who has not attended this show, to attend at least once. For a black-doll collector, there is nothing like being in the presence of the types of dolls you collect, a show for us, by us.

Linda Hayes will be an exhibitor this year; do visit her table; and if Tanya Montegut is there, please give her my regards.
