It's always fun to go to a doll show. The Fort Myers Doll Club sponsors a show every year in February. Local members and dealers bring dolls, bears, toys and accessories available to sell to collectors.

I am always looking for Hitty sisters and Hitty-size furniture and props. I found a green chair by Eden Toys for Madeline and a Vogue Ginny Suitcase.
Here are some highlights:
The Doll Show was decorated for Valentine's Day
Steiff "Button in Ear" Bears
Tiny Knitted Doll Clothes for All-Bisque Dolls
Madame Alexander Dolls and Doll Clothes
