The UFDC National Doll Convention in Dallas, Texas Starts Tomorrow

By July 8, 2006

Follow me on:

Last week's IDEX doll show in Las Vegas was all about modern dolls. This week's United Federation of Doll Clubs national convention in Dallas is about dolls of all types, from the oldest antiques to the newest of modern dolls. Today, pre-convention activities began with the National Doll Festival doll show, the Frashers auction and a reception at the home of Gail Cook, a well-known local collector who shared her incomparable antique doll collection with collectors at a Theriault's reception. Many UFDC members will have the opportunity to see her dolls this week, through tours at her home and also in the competition room of the convention. Pictured to the left are a group of rare Poulbots at her home. While you wait for more news and photos from this convention, you might want to look at my Reflections on Fashion: UFDC National Doll Convention 2005, Report and Photo Tour.
