The Philly show as it's being called begins Thursday May 12th and runs to May 14th.

Saturday will be open to the public from 10 - 2pm. Conventioneers will be able to attend seminars by leading artists in the bear and doll industries.
Ted Menten will be in attendance. Beverly Port and Helen Bullard, leaders in bear and doll world respectively will be honored for being pioneers in their fields.
Artists have been blogging and posting on facebook sneak photos of some wonderful pieces that they will have at the show. There is a lot of buzz about this show. People are excited to attend.
Here is my sneak peek:

I'm one of the kids who grew up with Teddy Bears. I wish the convention would make these available in other cities. Would love to see the bear collection.
