AS we live in Thame itself we're remarkable lucky that our travel to the venue for the Thame Dolls House and Miniatures Fair on Saturday takes around 5 minutes - so no crack of sparrow start for us unlike many traders and visitors who came from all over and miles away!!
It was SUCH a lovely and successful day - many thanks to Felicity and Ron for carrying on the tradition of a superlative artisan fair that attracts us all, as much for the happy friendly atmosphere, as for the acknowledged level of high quality miniatures of such wide variety.
It was a wonderful opportunity to grab a few minutes with old friends, both side of the trade stands and make new ones - lovely!! I just wish there had been proper time to have a really good browse around the fair myself.
We all look forward to the final tally of fundraising for Breast Cancer Campaign but to judge by the fact that the raffle was superb and the ladies manning the Sales Table and Tombola etc.were inundated with even more donations on the day, and rushed off their feet - it should be good!!
The Market Town Miniatures ( the Thame Club) put on a wonderful display, celebrating 10 years and demonstrating what a talented group they are. They're also a friendly and informal bunch happy to welcome new members.
It can't have escaped your notice, if you've been reading my Blog - or Celia's -
(KT Miniatures) that our 1/12th vignette 'On a Cold and Frosty Morning.....' was being auctioned in aid of the charity. The Sealed Bids were opened and an amazing bid of £300 won the project. ' Thank you' doesn't seem adequate, but we all know that this generous amount will be put to good use.
And finally....thank you to everyone who came along to say 'hello' - it all makes for a very special day.
