Tucson Doll Show Report
After 3.5 years of no show in Tucson or southern Arizona, I decided to go ahead try it again. Although I had a late start with the idea and many other doll events conflicting, I was amazed at the crowd that came. Don't get me wrong, the event did not go off without a challenge or two but it really was so nice to see some of the people again after all this time not to mention hearing everyone say how much they appreciated the show.
It made me realize how important it was to our doll/bear community that we make every effort to continue on with the show. Not just for the business aspect but for the simple enjoyment of the love and knowledge of dolls. My granddaughter, Emily, age 5, dressed up as a fairy princess following the theme of the event "Secret Fairy Garden" and acted as a hostess, going around the show and charming most everyone. Without this opportunity, she would not had a chance to see so many different and interesting dolls! I do hope I can continue on for at least a few more years and hopefully see many more children at them in the future.
