Santa Rosa Doll and Toy Show

Santa Rosa Doll and Toy Show

In the spirit of #Sonomastrong, this year we are not charging our normal admission. Instead we are simply asking attendees to donate what they can to the Living Room Center in Santa Rosa. We hope doll friends and their families will support our community by coming to the show.

Our Doll Show brings together collectors and experts who exchange information about antique, vintage, modern and miniature doll makers and artists. We are a charter club of United Federation of Doll Clubs (also known as UFDC.) We promote research, conservation and history of dolls. Much of this research correlates with Women’s History in fashion, business and childrearing.  We also fundraise for The Living Room in Santa Rosa, CA with our Helper Tables at the Doll Show.
