download1aq

The folks at the Italian Doll Convention have worked long and hard to make their event a mainstay on the doll convention scene…and it’s not hard to see the fabulous results! Now in their fourth year, the IDC event is one to put onto your calendars, but it is very limited and sells out quickly, so plan in advance. This year’s charity auction benefits SOS Villaggi dei Bambini, a benevolent organization dedicated to children’s developmental needs worldwide. CLICK ANY OF THE IMAGES IN THIS POST TO TAKE YOU DIRECTLY TO THE AUCTION.

This year’s charity auction lineup, which you can see and place bids by clicking here, offers the highest of fashion among our favorite makers and fashion dolls. There’s eye candy for everyone…and you can follow the excitement as the bids increase. We ask that our community share news of this auction to all your family and friends who love dolls – the maximum exposure brings the highest proceeds to the charity – and hey, it’s just good, plain fun!
