Niagara Frontier Doll Club’s 34th annual Doll Show & Sale

On Sunday, October 17 the Niagara Frontier Doll Club will host its 34th annual Doll Show & Sale at the University at Buffalo Center or Tomorrow on Flint Road in Amherst (from 10 am to 3 pm). The event will showcase items that include antique and collectible dolls, bears, toys, and miniatures. There will also be an educational exhibit of antique and modern rag dolls.

The Niagara Frontier Doll Club‘s annual show not only raises funds to support worthy causes, it also provides insight into doll culture over the years, via doll designers and makers, antique dolls, clothing collections, doll houses, vintage furniture displays, and so on.

The Niagara Frontier Doll Club became a member of the United Federation of Doll Clubs in 1980.

A portion of the proceeds from the 2021 event will benefit the Stella Niagara Women’s Respite Program (WRP) and the Matt Urban Center.

Since 1989, the WRP has been providing retreat services for disadvantaged mothers. In more recent years, services have been extended to grandmothers raising grandchildren, women with cancer, and alumnae of previous retreats.

Matt Urban Center – the second benefactor of the event – is an organization located on the city’s East Side that provides services that include senior apartments, homeless outreach, GED and work skills training, and crime victims assistance.

Admission to the show is $5 per person, with children under 12 admitted free. See Facebook event.
