Quinlan Doll and Teddy Bear Convention Report

TAODA member, Adriana Esqueda, had a booth at the Quinlan Doll and Teddy Bear Convention in Philadelphia this past May.  This was the second year for the convention, and Adriana's second time to have a booth.  She writes, "There were quite a few well know doll artists that were new to the show this year....I went with twenty one pieces not counting the smaller ones and came home with seven. There is no question there is a market for doll makers in Philly.  This show is a must to attend and show.
Attendees are so nice and eager to meet the artist. The staff of the hotel are gracious and very nice. I have not one single complaint on the whole show experience. This show is in its second year and in the first year Terry Quinlan sent out a form to fill out regarding what we thought and any changes we would like. This year he incorporated the changes. There are still more changes coming for next year so he's improving the show as it grows. That tells me he listens to us and cares. They are truly good people."
