Check out my 'on location' update with a walk through the Museum event.

I'm excited to announce that I will be hosting a month long 'fashion doll museum' pop-up at Haynes Lane Vintage Market in London, starting in the last week of August. 

It will be a mini museum, showcasing some of my personal collection. The curation of the show will be in collaboration with Sally Battley, owner of Maltpress Trading and Sian Foley of Alan's Antiques. Sally and Sian are currently running the vintage market together. The huge vintage and retro shop is a rambling cornucopia of fabulous finds waiting to be discovered by their destined owners. There is a great selection of characterful furniture, and some of it will soon display Sindy dolls through the ages, eccentric poodle faced dolls and the full collection of MEGO Wizard of Oz 8" dolls. Not sure what else I'm going to pick - I'll have to see how much I can fit in.

Here is a snapshot of the entrance to the venue showing Maltpress Trading.

I do look forward to meeting any of you who make the journey to come and visit, as I aim to be there in person throughout the show.
