Facet's Annual Doll Barbeque September 19, 2010

No, we do not barbeque dolls at this event. We talk dolls, look at dolls, buy and sell dolls, eat and run around a loooong table filled with free stuff. We also get to see one of the most impressive doll collections ever - Marcia Friend's.

If you're traveling down the NYS Thruway and want to meet up at the Kingston exit, let me know.

Here is the info from Marcia which contains all the facts and contact details you will need. I hope to see you there.

I can't believe it's September already!
I wanted to remind you that my 8th Annual Summer Doll BBQ and Party is coming up in less than 3 weeks - Sunday September 19th, starting around noon.  It's at my house in Matawan, NJ and I've already started cleaning... trying to get an early start!
Matawan is in central NJ, near exit 117a of the Garden State Parkway. It is easily accessible by NJ Transit trains from NYC or Newark.  We will have a train station pickup and drop off for those who need it, so let me know if you do so we can make sure we have enough cars available for that.

It will be like the previous BBQ's with lots of people, food, dolls, sales, and more!  I'll provide all of the food, and there is a cover charge of $12 per person.  You may PayPal this in advance or pay when you get here.  However, if you're going to do PayPal, I'd appreciate your waiting until a week or two before the BBQ so I have less chance of losing track of it :-)
I'll have a sales area set up in my basement - space is on a first come basis.  Facets will be open, of course (and hopefully a little more cleaned up than in the past - LOL!) :-)  We'll have door prizes, the infamous "free table", and lots of dolls to look at.  
The "free table" is a table of doll related items that are extras, slightly used, unwanted, etc... It's a good way to get rid of those items that you think someone might want and you don't feel like putting on EBay.  If you have some things you'd like to put in, bring them.  However, if no one takes them, you have to take them back or throw them out - they can't stay here!   If you want to mail donations, LMK and I'll give you the address.  I have already gotten some fantastic donations mailed in.

Feel free to bring a doll for display.  I don't have a theme - bring a favorite, a new acquisition, something you want to show off, whatever. 
Contributions to the door prizes are appreciated.
If you need a place to stay in this area, I recommend the Woodbridge Hilton.  It's about 20 minutes north of here and is more reasonably priced and nicer than the few hotels in the immediate area.   If you are looking for travel mates or roommates, LMK and I'll try to help. 

I hope you can make it to the party - it's a day of great fun, great dolls and great people :-)  Email me to RSVP or ask questions.  When you email me, I would appreciate it if you could put "BBQ" somewhere in the subject so I can sort out those emails.

Hope to see you on the 19th!
P.S.   If you know someone who might like to come to the BBQ and that hasn't gotten an invitation, please let me know and I'll invite them.
