2010 Naples Doll Show

Submitted by Hitty Gale

I rode along with my adopted humans, Shirley and David, to Naples Florida to attend the Region 9 UFDC Doll Show and Sale sponsored by the Naples Doll Club.

The admission price of $8 is a small price to pay for such a good time!  You will find modern dolls as well as museum-quality antique dolls and hard-to-find fabrics and trims. Some of the best doll artists and doll dealers exhibit at this show. Until his passing last year, Richard Wright, the doll expert of Antique Roadshow, was a regular.  He is greatly missed.

Joey Raikes, a Hitty friend, came to live with the Sunny State  Hitty Dolls.  He is the first boy doll in our household.  After the doll show, we walked the beach and went to lunch.
