Sandra Epps Owner of Sandy's Land LLC established the Detroit Doll Show in 2011. The mission is to celebrate history, culture, self-love and diversity with the promotion of black dolls. It's the largest doll show of its kind because it caters to girls of all ages and collectors. The event brings out the entire family.
