  • April Meeting

    Our last meeting before our wind up, will be this Sunday, April 28th, at the Salisbury House on Leila. However, this month, our meeting will begin at a different time. The room will be available to us at 2pm, and the meeting will start at 2:15pm. If you’d like to still have something to eat, you can come early and eat in the main dining area, prior to 2pm, so that once you at done, you can go into the room at 2pm for the meeting.

    Despite the slight difference in time, we hope to see you there, especially since we are now having such beautiful weather! Get out and about, and come check us out!


  • Doll Extravaganza

    There is a fun doll sale coming up in Winnipeg this weekend! The Winnipeg Doll Extravaganza. It takes place on Sunday, March 17, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Viscount Gort Hotel on 1670 Portage Avenue.

    Admission: $5 for adults

    Also, if you bring a can of cat or dog food for local pet rescues, you’ll receive an extra draw ticket for every can!


  • Royal Romance

    As talk of the Royal Wedding Of Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle continues, I thought I would share with you the bisque porcelain dolls available from Ashton Drake, and sold through the Bradford Exchange. Meghan is the Royal Romance Bride, and Harry is the Royal Romance Groom, which are both posable. They are for sale individually, for $179.99 each. You can pre-order or reserve your’s today, though it seems they won’t be shipped until December 31st.

     

    If you would like to see more pictures of the dolls, including some close up shots of some of the details or wish to order one, just go to the website listed on the image, and you’ll find them there.


  • Membership Renewal

    Don’t forget it’s also time to renew your membership! The price has also been reduced, so make sure you renew to continue to receive newsletters and some other perks, and stay in the loop! And for any new people wanting to join, or thinking of joining, you are more than welcome and we would love to see you come to an upcoming meeting, or to join the club…you know you want to!


  • Zendaya

    A doll of young actress and singer, Zendaya, was created out of a not so pleasant situation, where the young star attended the Oscars a couple of years ago with dreads in her hair, hoping to show all hairstyles can be beautiful. However, some controversy was created when a TV personality commented on her hair, saying she also expected her hair to smell like patchouli oil and weed, which people did not take well to, including Zendaya, who responded with a letter, explaining her choice of hairstyle for the event, and wanting to give a positive message with it. Mattel chose to respond to the situation by helping Zendaya to share her message of beauty, by creating a one of a kind doll in her likeness from the Oscars. To date, it still unfortunately seems to be a one of a kind, made specifically for her. We can only hope they may choose to make more and make it available to the public, as it’s a gorgeous doll.

  • In Memory

    As many of you may have heard, one of our members, Sheelagh Komus, lost her daughter, Marlene Komus, in a tragic accident on October 30th. The family would appreciate donations being made to Craig Street Cats in her name, as it was somewhere she often volunteer and cared deeply about. The club is accepting donations of any amount that will be given to Craig Street Cats in Marlene’s name. So anyone who wishes to donate, please see Glenn.

  • Meet and Greet!

    Come to our September meeting, on the 25th, same place and time, and greet your friends, and maybe even make a new one! We’re looking forward to seeing what you’ve been up to over the Summer, and what fun dolly finds you’ve gotten your hands on!


  • Doll Themed Pumpkins!

    For those of you carving pumpkins, and want to add some dolly fun to your’s, here are some doll themed pumpkin stencils. All you do is make them bigger or smaller in order to fit your pumpkin the way you want it to, then print it, place it on the pumpkin, outline all the black areas, and then cut out the black areas, and then ta-da! Your very own doll pumpkin.
