When I came home I laid out all of my goodies on the dining room table...actually, this is most of it. I hadn't unwrapped a few things.
What you see here consists of my auction win-the amazing Bashette bed and Marley, my raffle wins: an older Tyler, Tiny Kitty, a Gene cut-out doll book and an outfit, the MetroDoll event doll, the Kingdom Doll event doll along with several gifts we received from KD and Metrodoll, the Carmela blonde doll I purchased, table gifts from both events and magazines.
I was not expecting to really like the Tonner souvenir doll but she's edgy, sexy and different. She'll probably be the only adult Marley doll in my collection going forward and I was very happy with her.
More about the individual items in the next post.

Kingdom Doll Event:
The pink suit was the optional purchase. The first doll is the actual "Liberty" doll we received.
MetroDolls Vendor Area:
Sandra Stillwell displayed her drool worthy fashions from her last convention.
Ed of Happily Ever After Dolls (Philadelphia)
Paul Pham wasn't there but he had a table displaying some fashions for pre-order.
Auction Items (Not all.)
Companion Doll: Carmela in Blonde and Brunette
Display of Ten Years of MetroDolls Event Souvenirs:
Rock Stars: Robert Tonner and Alexandra Forbes
(Amanda deftly evaded my camera.)
The auction outcome:
The artists' donations were beautiful and very generous. Most items exceeded their stated value. Several bidders got great bargains including me. I bid on and won the Bashette bed with Marley doll.
The top dollar auction item was Aquitaine, below.
I'm not going to post who won what, so please don't ask.
Congratulations to MetroDolls on holding an amazing, successful event.
Congratulations to Kingdom Doll for bringing more beauty to the doll world.
Congratulations to Tonner Doll Company for their continuous contributions to my collection even when I say "no more."
I love my dolls!
