A Nice Day at the Jenny Lind Doll Club Doll Show

Jenny Lind Doll Show www.izannahwalker.com

I spent all day Sunday exhibiting at the Jenny Lind Doll Show in Southbury, CT.  I had a chance to meet some wonderful people and spend the day talking about dolls, dolls and more dolls!  Surprisingly enough in all my years of doll making I haven’t ever done a doll show before.  I used to do bear shows and of course I’ve done more folk art shows than I can count, plus wholesale shows too, but this was my very first doll show.  🙂 It was a pure treat to be in a room where every single person knew who Izannah Walker was! *

This is a photo of Mary with all of the dolls I have made from the mold of her Anna!  I loved being able to show them to her and to get an update on the real Anna's latest adventures.  Coincidentally a woman who was a previous  owner of Mary's other Izannah Walker doll, Pauline, was selling dolls just a few tables down from me.  What a small world!

I have to say thank you to Mary Goddard and her husband Chris for all of their help on Sunday!  It was fun to see them again and have a chance to talk.  Mary also brought me the most amazing Halloween treat, tiny crepe paper and scrap ornaments that she made for my Halloween feather tree 🙂  A huge thank you to Joy Gaiser too, for booth sitting so that I could shop and take a break.  Joy is a true friend and so good to me!  I don’t know what I would do without all the wonderful people in my life…

*   My husband answered the phone this morning and was somewhat bemused to be asked “Is this Izannah Walker?”  Completely deadpan he handed the phone to me and said “It’s for you.”  🙂

 

 

Surprisingly most people at Sunday’s show were interested in custom made dolls, so I do currently have some

completed dolls available for sale.  I’ll try to get photos taken and get them posted sometime later today, but

first I have to harvest the pumpkins and pick the last of this year’s raspberries.  Frost is on its way tomorrow

night!

  1. Hi Paula, I loved seeing all the pictures. It was a great day at the show, and your tables were a show stopper. Also, you are very welcome for any help we could give you. Fondly, Mary G.

  2. Hi Mary,
    I just knew the photos of you were going to be great ones 🙂 It was a good day. I hope you found a few treasures on your way back home.

    p.s. Other than just rushing around too much, I found out the reason that I wasn’t feeling well at the show, it looks like I have Lyme disease.

  3. Hi Paula – your booth at the show looks wonderful! Wish I could have been there. Thanks for sharing pictures! I’m so sorry to hear that you have Lyme disease. I hope you are able to get feeling better soon! Susie

    • Susie,
      I wish you could have too. It would have been so nice to see you again.
      Thanks, in all the time we’ve lived here I’ve never caught Lyme disease before. I’m on my third day of amoxicillon and I think it’s helping!
      Paula
