PATCHOGUE, N.Y. â The Patchogue Doll Fanciers Club of Long Island is sponsoring its annual one-day Doll, Teddy Bear and Collectible Toy Sale and Competition on Sunday, January 11. The show is open to the public from 10 am to 4 pm and is at the Patchogue Manor, 911 Railroad Avenue.
Last year the club added toys and teddy bears to its annual show, which added to the excitement and appealed to a wider audience.
The show features a Doll Competition open to the general public with many antique, modern and childrenâs categories. Anyone may enter dolls in the competition, but entries must be registered by January 5.
The competition room will be open for public viewing 1 to 3 pm; ribbons are awarded for first, second, and third places and honorable mention in each of several categories. Special awards will also be given.
The Competition Room provides an opportunity for viewing special, rare and unusual dolls, old and new, from private collections. Club members will be available to answer questions and discuss dolls of interest to viewers.
In the dealer room approximately 80 tables of doll dealers, specializing in antique, vintage and modern dolls, with dolls for sale, will be open. Some of the newer dolls are âartistâ dolls, created by talented modern doll artists as showpieces rather than as play dolls.
There will also be a raffle table in the dealer room. Raffle tickets will be sold for a variety of dolls crated by individuals and by well-known manufacturers. Last year the club added door prizes as well, and that continues in the upcoming show.
The Patchogue Doll Fanciers Club is a nonprofit organization and annually donates a portion of the show proceeds to Long Island charities, including the Ronald McDonald House and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The admission is $5, $4 for seniors, free for ages 14 and under. Food and beverages will be available at nominal cost.
