DOLL REPAIRS

Usually Betty and/or Joyce
will be at our Shows and both
of them make minor repairs
at the show. Ask as you enter
and we will direct you to them.


******************************

Attendees

Due to an increase in people trying to use
our Shows as a source to sell their Dolls,
without obtaining space to do so,
we no longer allow you to bring dolls
into the show, except those needing
repairs. If you are caught trying to sell
dolls or other items at our Shows,
you will be escorted out and banned.
So, leave your dolls, photos and lists
at home, or secure space and join us.

head, arms or legs reattached,
then bring it to Betty or Joyce for some TLC.

About our Shows & Advertising

I have read on some Fan Sites and Forums where a few folks have said
we do not advertise our Shows. They are incorrect. We do advertise but
only where it gets real results.

Most people today rely on the Internet.
Our Shows are probably listed on more than thirty (30) websites
at any given time, including our own where we get lots of hits
every day of the year. We advertise with Google every month
using their AdWords program to maintain our Internet visibility.

We maintain a mailing list of real Buyers, who have attended
at least one of our Shows. We mail out postcards to those
Buyers, show specific, prior to a show. Our mailings run
between 600 and 1,300 at a time.
We have over 3,000 Buyers on
our mailing list.

We advertise about four or five times a year in
Antique Doll Collector, which generates a
lot of results for us.

We advertise in Southeastern Antiquing four or
five times a year, which is distributed to antique shops and malls
all over the Southeast, where our shows are held.

We send out Press Releases to 25 to 50 newspapers around a Show
two to three weeks prior to a show. From these we get write-ups
and listed in the Events Calendars.

We advertise with Zvents, not just the free listings,
but the paid Feature Listings. This gets us on
numerous Events Calendars in major cities and smaller
surrounding towns. We can add photos of our
Vendors dolls and detailed info. This gives us
excellent coverage months in advance of a Show.

When you Google one of our Shows
 it will fill up the first and most times,
the second page of listings.
Our Shows are very easy to find on
the Internet, the number one source
used by people today.

We distribute 1,500 to 3,000 flyers
for each Show and start promoting
a year in advance. Collectors and
Dealers put these in antique malls,
beauty salons and other places that ladies
frequent, including other Doll Shows.

We do not advertise in local newspapers
as that is a shotgun approach, which
is very expensive, to reach a handful of
Doll Collectors. Most people don't
subscribe to papers today.

We do not advertise in some
Doll & Bear Magazines,
as we have tried them before.
Their subscribers are not in
the areas where we have Shows.
We had Doll Reader give us some stats one
time, they had about 15,000 subscribers then,
with less than 500 in 7 Southeastern states.
We probably had most of those on OUR
mailing list. The ads were too costly
to maybe attract 5 people to a show.

We have a very healthy advertising budget,
one that would be better than most
Promoters. When you factor in ad costs,
printing, postage, Internet costs etc., I'm sure
 it exceeds the average Doll Show budget.

Attendance today is down at all Shows,
whether its Doll, Toys, Coins or whatever.
Check any show and they have ALL downsized.
Gaithersburg used to fill numerous buildings
and now its down to less than one building.

Doll Shows are going to cease to exist if
Collectors and Dealers don't support them.
There aren't near as many as there was just
a few years ago. They are rapidly
becoming extinct in a lot of areas.

It's up to both Collectors and Dealers to
help promote the hobby, not just a
Show Promoter. Join the bandwagon today


********************

We look forward to seeing you at one of
 our future Doll & Bear Shows real soon.
 
Again, "thanks" to all of you.
Gloria and Howard Knight
