AUSTIN DOLL COLLECTORS SOCIETY
The Austin Doll Collectors Society is an organization of antique, vintage, and modern doll collectors, dealers, and artisans. We meet on the first Monday of each month and our meetings are fun and educational. We begin with refreshments and socializing, and, following our brief business meeting, there is a special doll-related program and "show and tell." The Austin Doll Collectors Society is a nonprofit organization and is a member of the United Federation of Doll Clubs.

There was a lot of excitement over this generous donation by American Girl, which was offered as a special drawing. Nanea Mitchell is the newest American Girl and represents a Hawaiian girl from 1941.
The lucky and very happy winner of Nanea, Francine!
