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.

October 1, 2018, Meeting

The refreshment table was adorned with ghoulish Halloween goodies. 

Hexe, a scary witch doll produced by Simon and Halbig for Cuno and Otto Dressel, watches over the treats with the assistance of her familiar, a black character cat by Gebruder Heubach.

The program focused on last minute details for our upcoming doll show.  However, afterward several members brought dolls for show and tell.  Member Michele Thelen shared several unusual dolls from her collection.

Sallie Howard and Lisa Fonet discussed the recent Barbie convention and displayed their new dolls.

More on Our Special Drawing

Last week, we told you about a special top secret drawing to be held at our upcoming doll show.  The  clues were "American Girl" and "twice as nice."  Well, at tonight's meeting club members got a preview of just some of the treasures to be included in the drawing.  We can't post a picture, but can assure you it will feature goodies galore.  At the show, there will be hourly reveals of parts of the prize, with the drawing at 3:00 PM.  Any holder of admission ticket is eligible, but you must be present at the time of the drawing to win.
