Great Day!

Joanne and I were up at the crack of dark this morning to catch a bus taking members of the Doll Club of Edmonton and five members of MEE to the Doll Show in Calgary. We've made this trip a few times now and it's well worth the trip, if only for the camaraderie.

We left at 6, stopped for coffee in Red Deer and arrived at the Doll Show at 9:30 which gave us time for visiting before the Show started at 10. Found Marilyn A. who is a member of both the Calgary Doll Club and MEE and MEE member Sunni Dixon who was visiting Marilyn.

MEE member Reenie of Reenie's Teenies was doing a booming business with her miniature accessories. Could hardly get near her table! Visited with Val C. of Calgary who often does our Show and Sale and who expects to attend this September. A newcomer to Calgary who does minis including beautiful knitting showed interest in doing our September also.

MEE member Bev also took some time from visiting her sister to attend the Show. And I ran into two old friends, one of whom plans on doing our Show also.

Joanne found a couple unique minis, The others from MEE found some great items also but I managed to avoid temptation.

We left the Show at 1:00 (gifted with a bottle of water and roll of Mentos each from the Calgary Doll Club) for the Antique Mall in Airdrie where we spent about an hour.

There I found a crystal salt cellar that I'll use as a mini salad bowl.

From there we headed back to Edmonton with another brief stop in Red Deer.

Home by shortly after six. Great trip!
