A group of eight of us from the miniature club joined the Edmonton Doll Club on their bus to Calgary to attend the Doll Show put on by the Calgary Doll Club. Took these pictures of the display at the front of the room. Was especially nice to see all the dollhouses!
|Love this display - especially the roller skates on the carhop!|
|Lovely kitchen cabinet.|
|Marilyn Akazawa's winning entry in N.A.M.E.'s Hallmark ornament contest. Marilyn is a former member of MEE and is now with the Calgary Doll Club.|
|I'm wondering if this is a Lundby?|
|Lovely piece - shown open|
|I succumbed to this wonderful Shari Lewis's "Lambchop" puppet. She even whispers in your ear!|
|What a wonderful little sewing machine - for only $1.00|
|Keep telling myself not to buy anymore electrical lights but couldn't resist this one.|
Before we entered the show, I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by follower, Dianne, whom I met at our Edmonton Show and Sale last year. Joanne and I had a wonderful talk with her about the closing of Victoria Miniland storefront and the upcoming show and sale here in September. Just a reminder that Alex's website is still open and he will be here in September!
After the doll show, we continued on to the antique mall in Airdrie. Didn't really see anything that called out to me but did take a whole slew of pictures of vintage radios. Joanne is in the planning stages of a radio shop so this will give her lots of ideas. And me, too, as I can possibly make some for her.
Just as we entered, there was a box of cutlery and I found 7 pieces of the Adam pattern that I just couldn't resist picking up for myself.
Don't know why I bothered getting the new pieces. I seldom, if ever, entertain any more on this scale and the children probably won't want the stuff down the road. Nonetheless, I like it and it has a lot of good memories.
