Pippa convo 2011!

This years Pippa convention was held in Stratford-Upon-Avon which is rather famous for being the birthplace of William Shakespeare. Its a gorgeous town and I love shopping there ... ! Anyway back to Pippa lol! I travelled down to Stratford on Friday evening with a lovely Pippa friend who doesn't live too far from me! There was time for a bit of shopping first thing on Saturday (and Fat Face had a sale on heehee!) as the convo wasn't until 10:30. People came from across the world (America and Holland) to celebrate Pippa, the small plastic doll from the '70s! The theme for this years convention was 'All the World's a Stage'. As usual I forgot to take my camera so I have borrowed a couple of photos that have been publicly shared elsewhere ...

The second photo shows a little bit of the bulging prize table! My goodness!

As usual there were some beautiful prizes on offer! There were dolls that had been customised especially for the prize table, someone had donated previous convention dolls, there were outfits (both original and handmade), pippa-size accessories, storage, Dawn dolls (Pippa size doll from across the pond), other collectable dolls, loads of prizes! You can see one of the prizes I had - the plastic container with the purple lid - it was full of tiny trimmings (ribbon, bows, fabric flowers, etc) and fabric to be used to make Pippa clothes! Gorgeous!! You can also see a chair I won - its in the little red box! I also won a previous convention doll from 2008 - 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' from Liverpool! The lady who donated her was very generous and donated lots of beautiful things. I love Lucy to bits and shall take a photo later ... and one of this years convention doll! This year Pippa starred as 'Juliet' and the box was her balcony ... aahh so lovely!

Everyone who attends the convention makes or buys a gift for 33 goody boxes, so everyone comes away with a box full of goodies! Party bags for grown ups! Fab!! I shall have to go through this in detail later too, as this post is getting incredibly long!
