Doll fair shapes up for success
A WAITING list for exhibitors wanting to trade at Ipswich's Gala Doll Fair demonstrates the event's popularity.
Bears, crafts and collectables will also be on show and for sale.
Organiser Val Metcalfe expects to pack the Civic Centre this Sunday with stalls, displays and an enthusiastic crowd.
"I've got a lot of new traders in the 85 already on the list from Bundaberg, Lismore and Warwick," Ms Metcalfe said.
"We've got a whole range of collectible and antique dolls and bears."
Fair-goers can have their dolls and bears valued for free.
"Ipswich has been hosting doll shows for 29 years and interest has never waned," she said.
The Ipswich Gala Doll Fair runs from 9am-3pm at the Civic Centre (cnr Limestone and Nicholas Sts).
Raffle proceeds will go to Ipswich Hospice Care.
