New York Black Doll and Craft Show

Last Saturday, my faithful assistant (also known as my daughter) and I were at the historic Riverside Church in New York City for the 2011 New York Black Doll and Craft Show.  This is my daughter standing at our table:

It was absolutely sweltering outside, but the hearty shoppers who made it to the beautiful air-conditioned church were rewarded by a fine array of unique African-American dolls and fabric art.  As always, we enjoyed meeting all of the people who stopped by our table.  Our thanks to Done Up! for organizing this showcase!
