We’re gearing up for our HUGE winter meet up in the Chicago area, and I can’t wait!
There are usually 75-100 attendees with several hundred dolls available to see. In addition to getting together and showing off our new beauties, we also have a very active sales area open to all in attendance. What can I say? We love to buy, sell, and trade. 😀
Here’s the deets:
Date: Saturday, January 10, 2015

Arlington Heights, IL 60005
We’ll be there starting around 3pm, and most likely will have people there until closing.
We had a fantastic Mitsuwa meet on September 27! So fun to see all the great dolls 😀
I was only able to get pics of a few that attended (sorry for those I missed!).
ChitownDollz hosted a meet up at the Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago on Saturday.
It was a pretty small turn-out (ok, it was a pretty dismal turn-out – there were 2 of us), but it was actually for the better.
Unbeknownst to us, the conservatory has been undergoing maintenance and half of it was closed – including the Palm House and the Desert (Arid) House. How disappointing!
We did, however, have a family of siblings come over to explore our BJDs. They ranged in age from about 2 to 11. They were wonderful kids – absolutely precious! They loved how posable the dolls are, and how the hair is all wigs. And the older brother did such a great job wrangling in the younger ones when needed.
After the kids left, we walked around for a short while before we decided to head out to Oak Brook to have some coffee and chit-chat.
It was such a good time being able to catch up with a good friend.
I was a bit lazy, though, and didn’t get very many pictures.. Actually, I only took 3 pictures during the entire day. Talk about slacking!
The next meet up, I need to make sure I do better. 😛
I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it! *dances*
DairylandBJD forum is hosting their annual summer meetup in Madison on July 19.
A few of us are getting a hotel to make it a full weekend of dolly goodness. And I’m so excited!
Attendance was limited to 100, so if you weren’t able to grab a spot this year, join the forums and keep an eye out for next year! There are tons of dolls to see, and many people bring items for sale.
If you WERE able to grab a spot – can’t wait to see you there!
