  1. I got the newsletter and info in the mail too. I am thinking about going. I have been before. Most of the dolls there are handcrafted and not the fashion dolls that I love. I wish there was a fashion doll club in Philly.

  2. Thanks, Debbie, for this information. I need to post a similar article on my Examiner page :-D
