Despite a rainy day, it was lovely to see so many friends, old and new, on Saturday. Hopefully a good sum will have been raised for the charities Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and Thame Valley Air Ambulance.
Thank you to those of you who came along to say 'hello' and were interested in our work or purchased items - it was splendid to see you.
It's a small, cosy event in a lovely village hall so unusually for us there was a chance to really have a chat, enjoy the many club exhibitions displaying the work of talented non-professionals and have the chance to see what our colleagues have on their stalls. This is never possible at a big show so it was a real pleasure.
As a bonus Freda led a team of great cake and coffee makers so we enjoyed terrific refreshments.
It's possible that in future this will be an annual event - which would be great - I'll let you know.
As you can see I'm either 'thinking' or more likely, contemplating the chocolate brownie behind my stand.....Celia, my workshop colleague took this sneaky picture when I wasn't looking as we set up in the morning - thanks mate!
In the foreground you can see our joint Nostalgia in Miniature Workshops display stand, which attracted quite a lot of interest as we had crammed 15 original prototypes on there - not least from our husbands who never see the prototypes all together!
It was crowded....... so we are now selling just a few as we're both running out of storage space. If you might be interested, take a closer look at them on our website where you can see pictures of all the projects.
Those for sale are:
The Little Vintage Arbour in both 1/12th and 1/24th scales.
The Little Washing Line......in 1/12th scale
The Little Vintage Hall and The Other Room in 1/24th scale (sold together)
Let's Go Camping - Dollshouse and Miniature Scene Magazine 1/12th scale Project.
Do contact either of us if you'd like prices or more details - all but 'Let's Go Camping' could be posted......the camping project could be collected from one of us in Thame, Oxon.
Many thanks to Felicity and Ron for a lovely day!
Thanks for looking
