Janet commissioned the dolls to be included in the Billericay Dolls House Club's French Village Scene and sent the photo to me - many thanks to her and to Norman Hunter who has kindly allowed me to use his picture. The whole scene is absolutely wonderful and was a great success at the recent exhibition. Congratulations to all the members who created such lovely work.
And now at last, after all the hints, I can announce that our Nostalgia in Miniature Workshop next year will be 'THE LITTLE VINTAGE TOYSHOP'. We think this is our most exciting project so far and Celia and I are looking forward to it enormously. We're busy building, planning and creating replica vintage toys. Celia of course is lucky enough to handle genuine vintage dolls house toys and houses all the time as Mrs KT Miniatures and let's be honest....I'm old enough to have played with some!
We are hoping that we can hold this on a Saturday in June but unfortunately aren't able to arrrange the date with the venue until early in the New Year - however we do have a Reserve List with a number of names on it already so if you're interested and would like to have the opportunity of a place before booking officially opens on our website, do contact one of us asap. This does not commit you at this time - just gives you a first chance to book. More details will be available shortly.
On this occasion, due the complexity and the fact that by their very nature toys are small and sometimes tiny, we are offering this in 1/12th scale only but its compact nature means it will sit on a bookshelf or mantlepiece so it is very versatile and we think it will also have wide appeal to those of you who usually work in the smaller scales.
At £86, with a semi constructed carcass and highly detailed frontage based on a beautiful antique miniature shop, together with kits, materials and instructions to make over 30 toys inspired by originals mostly from 1920s-30s - this could be a future heirloom. And if you're tempted to come with friends as group - a Discount may apply.
Thank you for looking
