I’m new to the doll collector hobby – meaning I’ve been collecting for less than a year – and had never heard of the IDEX show. Or any doll show for that matter. I think I found the website on a random Google search. I signed up quickly because it was held at a location only 3 miles from home. Mingling with veteran doll collectors sounded like a lot of fun.
I registered for a needle felting workshop and two Tonner Doll events featuring Robert Tonner as the host. I was pleasantly surprised at the entire experience. Mind you I have nothing to gauge against though, having never been to a doll show. Read on to find out what I did and saw.
