Tulsa Doll & Toy Show

This past weekend I attended the Tulsa Doll & Toy Show and thought I’d share a little bit about the event.

This year’s doll show seemed to be a little smaller than the last.

Online auction sites seem to have contributed to the decline of dolls shows. Despite the small turnout,┬áthis year’s show still had some neat finds.

Sometimes I just like looking at all the old toys.

As always it’s fun just to see some of the dolls that are on display. Some of these antique dolls can go for thousands of dollars.

Sometimes dolls & toys aren’t the only things you find at the doll show. I came across an interesting glove box, but couldn’t give up $40 for it.

Personally, I tend to be more fond of Barbies, having grown up playing with them.

I left the doll show with several goodies, including a steal of a deal on this Coke Cola doll.

She was the last Coke Cola doll I was missing from my 50’s Coke Cola Barbie collection. All I need now is the Coke Cola Soda Jerk Ken.

I also dug around the dollar bin and found some cute accessories for my Lala Loopsy mini collection.

At the event, we heard that the Oklahoma City doll show in May is expected to be bigger, so I have it marked on my calendar to go.

The day was rather nice for November, and after the doll show, we decided to do some antiquing. Overall, I had a good time with everyone.
