Chat n Snap 2016 - part 3

In addition to the Guiding and Scouting Jamboree and the tables of visiting dolls, another big feature of the Chat 'n Snap is the sales stands with an amazing array of Sasha goodies available to buy. 
Early in the sales my girl bought some purple baby shoes from Gayle to go with a smocked outfit we had just bought from Marilyn
Ginny had some amazing mix and match choices, we bought two long sleeved t-shirts
A general view of the sales stands looking towards the Jamboree display, this was later in the afternoon when sales were quieter so Iris had time for the crossword!
Judith's Dollydoodles stand, we bought a baby outfit for Daisy and a lilac body-warmer for one of the girls
Gayle's and Dawn's sales tables
Joanne was doing crochet while my girl was finishing her lunch and starting to contemplate working on her cross stitch again
The Raffles!  The Chat 'n Snap would not be the same without raffles and there were two - the main one was the blond Trendon with Shelly painted eyes and a whole basket of clothes and accessories.

The other raffle included two dolls, an Our Generation sewing machine with accessories and a host of other individual prizes.

Dawn assisted Dee with the raffle.  Some of the second raffle prizes were drawn first then half way through the first raffle prize was drawn, followed by the remainder of the second raffle prizes.

The raffle begins
Janet was pleased to win the blond girl
Ginny's daughter picked up a lovely dress on a clothes stand
Alice was thrilled to win the sewing machine, I think at least half of us wanted to win it.
My girl won a very pretty dress
Joanne was pleased to win a prize
A very happy winner of Greg and his basket of clothes and accessories - Jane was thrilled
It looks like Greg was pleased with his new mum too
 A short while later Iris won the brunette boy
All too soon it was time to pack up and say goodbye to everyone.  Jocelyn travelled with us so we had lots of chatting in the car on the way home about the Chat 'n Snap.  Thank you to Dee for organising it and all her band of helpers who served refreshments, it was a very enjoyable day.

Even though I had to miss attending this wonderful event this year your descriptions and photos helped me visualise this special day.
Fabulous raffle prizes as usual, far too tempting sales tables and great doll displays. You and your daughter managed to buy some super items for your dolls. Bet that they were well pleased!
Enjoyed catching sight here too of several friends. Many thanks.
