Doll enthusiasts gather to celebrate collectibles

Saturday, April 19

The East Tennessee Doll Collectors, UFDC Region 8, welcomes members, guests and the public to their Spring Fling in the Smokies on Saturday, April 19, at the Airport Hilton.

Speaker will be author Glenn Mandeville, who wrote “Ginny: America’s Sweetheart” and “Celebrity Doll Price Guide.”

The event is an all-day affair, with a $95 registration fee that includes breakfast, lunch, souvenirs and a souvenir doll, the presentation by Mandeville and access to vendors, sales tables and door prizes. The day begins at 8:30 a.m. and continues until 4 p.m.

Spring Fling is a good way to learn about dolls and doll collecting, says Elaine Dzendzel. For more information on the conference, call Dzendzel at 865-458-5109 or Jean Mallett at 865-408-0268.
