We Miss you, stay safe
We're sad we've had to postpone due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and we missed seeing everyone this weekend. But it's more important that everyone stay safe during the outbreak.
We look forward to announcing our rescheduled event, after we've set a date. It's currently still TBD.
We are coordinating with our venue, Manhattan Antique Marketplace, please watch our website for updates.
In the meantime, please take a look at some of our great past vendors, many of whom sell online:
Doll Them All Emporium
Equisite Fashions for BJDs by Charie Wilson
Evil Little Girls
Fate Laughing Illustrations
Judy Porter Dolls
The Mushroom Peddler
Soo Zee Plum
SPRING EVENT POSTPONED
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are postponing our spring doll meet. We will be coordinating with our venue, Manhattan Antique Marketplace, to determine our new event date.
At this time, we don't want to cancel the event outright, but may need to depending on how the next few months unfold. Please watch this space for updates.
We hope all our dolly friends stay safe during this tough time.

STLBJDCON - Two Months Away!
We’re two months away from the convention!
It’s been a colder than normal winter in St. Louis and we’re ready for spring! Steampunk is a theme we’re very excited about - many of our staff have also done many steampunk events in the past, so don your goggles and ready your Nerf Mavericks! Please find information on registration, programming, and vending below.
Any additional questions? Check out the FAQ on the website or contact us.
Call for ArtWe’d love to show off your doll’s Steampunk best!
If you would like to showcase your credited Steampunk art in the programming book, contact Jen!
Friday Night Banquet - $25
Not just your average banquet, we provide a local showcase of food and live entertainment with Contests, Raffles, and Auctions to get the convention started! This event is also great for friends and family, not just dolly folk. Please note any food restrictions you may have on the registration form - we aim to provide for everyone!
Saturday Convention - $25
Our convention brings a doll meet feel but with new friends from across the country. We offer panels, hands on workshops, vendors from across the US, auctions, photo areas, auctions, raffles, and more!

Our panels and workshops have spanned a wide range of topics including BJD care, storytelling, doll creation and history - we even bring in sewing machines for clothing creation!
