Crossroads Show 2011

Two floors of artists and vendors had collectors running back and forth for two days with lots to see. There were antiques from doll and bear artists. Dotty Ayers and John Paul Port had bear related antiques to drool over.
Gordana Littles Doll Studio (760-749-3257) sold a theatre by artist Connie Tognoli.

Wonderful piece to see.
The TOBY Industry Choice Award Winners were announced. Laura Sanchez who did a piece with Steve Schutt was there to receive her award.

Some other winners, and this is not a complete list as I don't write that fast, are Paula Carter, Cheryl Hutchinson, Denise Purrington , Michelle Lamb, Charlene Drager, Kim Russell, Ron & Kristy Northman, Karin DeLorenzo, Krista Griffiths, Cindy Cherry, Shelly Allison, Jutta Michels, Karen Lyons, and Jane Monroe.
Missing from this list are the miniature and small artist bear winners and I do apologize. Also artists Kelly Graham, Cinda Peterson, Gloria Chan and Patricia Bierer were winners.

John Paul Port accepted the Inspiration Award 2011 on behalf of his mother, this years winner, Beverly Port. Congratulations to all the winners.
