Good morning ladies !!! This doll show is the Central Penn Doll club , this yr it was located at the Lebanon expo fair grounds in Lebanon Pa. It was a really nice area compared to the old Hershey school they used to hold it in , the last show we did there i was put in a back room with others and very lil ppl came in soooo not a good show . I usually dont do well there anyway i like to set up in hopes to getting some exposure but as far as sales… not good i only sold one baby there each yr except my 1st yr setting up i did great . ppl say my prices are to high but they dont realize the cost of the kits and supplies … oh well what do you do ?? anyway they hold it every yr the same time in oct the sunday after the hershey car show . You can get the info on line under central penn doll club. Another factor about not a lot of sales the area is its a bit depressed ppl dont like to spend over 50.00 and to see a doll for 300 they think you are crazy to spend that much on a doll baby lol . i had a lot of ppl that never seen these babies before and were very intrigued by them … but by no means was spending that kind of money on a doll… I also have a repeater come by with rude comments wanting to buy a doll but couldnt cause she just could afford it , she has come by every yr and still has something rude to say and just leaves , she was interested in my Elliot … i had him at 250 told her 200 and she stomped away … she dont understand there were only 150 of these dolls made world wide according to his COA so i didnt think my asking price was to much. Anyway it would be awesome to meet more ppl that love these babies !!! So come visit !!! Hugs to all :slight_smile:

Hahaha I don’t know where I got MY from. We would decently be interested in going. :hugs:

Lol yes it would be a fun group. Yes pls do call u have my card I can give u details. Hugs

Jody have you thought about coming to the ROSE Show with your babies? They are so pretty!

My family is from this general area, so believe me, I’m not surprised about this, @JodyHershey. Wish it was different and you could have sold more. You are so right that people have no clue about how much supplies cost and how much time we put into making these babies.

As for me, I don’t sell anything, but would have been thrilled just to meet another person who does this. So basically I would have been there to admire your babies and cheer you on. :smile:
