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.

October 13, 2018, Doll Show

Our October 13th doll show was a success thanks to our wonderful vendors and the hard work of club members.  Here is the club's charity booth, full of a variety of donated dolls looking for a good home, with the proceeds going to charity.



 Our special exhibit on the history of doll bodies greeted show goers.


The show offered a wide variety of dolls, from antique to contemporary, with something for every taste and budget.  There were bisque beauties. . . .



BJD belles. . . .



batches of Barbies. . . .


big dolls. . . . 


little dolls. . . . 


babies. . . .


bears. . . . 


holiday decorations. . . .



. . . . and a whole lot more!











Then we revealed was our extra-special secret door prize. . . .two American Girl dolls AND a huge assortment of accessories and clothing.





Thank you to all those who attended.  Sadly, the club has decided that because of the increasing costs, as well as all the work and time involved, this will be our final doll show, ending a 43-year tradition.
