The show itself only lasted four hours - from 10-2 - and there were many collectors to visit with. I saw some folks that I haven't seen in years - both artists and collectors.
I hardly left the table because I didn't want to miss seeing anyone! Right at the last, though, I did remember to get some photos of those near - and dear - to me.

And I did get a few shots of some really grand bears!
I wish you all could have been there! It was truly a magnificent weekend and Susan and Terry Quinlan are to be commended for having planned and executed one of the great moments in time for the bear and doll world. Their work through their museum in Santa Barbara adds so much to all who love bears and dolls. Please do visit the Susan Quinlan Doll and Teddy Bear Museum and Library if you are in or close to Santa Barbara!
