At the Show - Fantasy Figures & More

At the age of 16, Todd Krueger of T. K. Designs began selling his miniature figures at major shows in the U.S. He has more than thirty years of experience as a doll maker. Todd favors fantasy character dolls, costumed primates, and interestingly attired figures. He uses all natural fabrics and is a master at finishing details and draping garments. The 2013 show will be Todd's sixth year as a dealer at Good Sam. tkdsgns99@charter.net, www.bytkd.com
