My love of dolls began when my godmother got me my first Barbie doll at the age of 5. From there a love for the hobby grew and is a large part of my life today.
The Willowbrook (now Countryside) shows were originally started by Gigi & Sherry of Gigi's Dolls & Sherry's Teddy Bears and taken over by JoAnn Reynolds.
The Peoria doll show was originally run by JoAnn Reynolds.
I took over as the promoter of these 3 shows in 2005 and work hard to give the best show experience possible to both dealers and customers.
In 2006 by dealer request I started a show in Lisle/Naperville. In 2012 the show was moved to Tinley Park. This has become a popular show and is a great time to shop for the holidays for the doll collector in your life.
I welcome dealer inquiries. You don't have to be a doll/bear dealer to sell at a show. All you need is some stuff to sell, a cloth/cover for your table, and some knowledge of how much to price your items (you can sometimes find info online, Ebay, Amazon.com, etc.) and of course a contract and fee.
Have a Doll Club? Would you like to set up a discount for your club to come and shop at one of my shows? Contact me for details.
Do you have show flyers you would like to put out at any of my shows? Contact me to make arrangements.
