KT Miniatures Is Now Back Open For Business!

Hi Everyone
This is just a quick message to say that KT Miniatures is now back open for business. 

Thank you again for all your lovely messages of condolence, they have been very much appreciated. 

My first task is to reply to all the backlog of orders and enquiries sent whilst I have been closed these past few weeks. And then I hope to get back into the swing of listing some lovely vintage pieces to the website once again.

Is good to be back.

Thank You For All Your Messages - I Hope To Open KT Miniatures Again Very Soon.

"Mr KT" (Dave Thomas)
I would just like to say a huge "thank you" for  all your messages of condolences via emails and cards sent since "Mr KT's" passing. I have been overwhelmed by your kindness and all your communications have helped me greatly.  Am sorry I won't be able to reply to everybody personally due to the sheer volume received, but hope that you will accept this as my reply to you all.  I can assure you that I have read every single one of your messages.

I am ok but recognise that after 36 years of marriage it will take quite some time to adjust. The shock of recent events took a while to sink in but now the funeral is over, reality has well and truly kicked in with a vengeance.

Apart from missing him terribly, there is still probate and niggles that have yet to be sorted, but we are moving in the right direction. I also do have some issues with my server and website, all of which need sorting out by someone technically minded who knows what they are doing. So I am going to have to enlist help to do all those computer/website things that Dave used to do for me. I am hoping that will not have to go offline for any length of time whilst server changes are made, but if it does...please do keep checking back. Hopefully it won't be necessary to go offline at all....keep yer fingers crossed for me!

So am sorry but KT Miniatures will have to stay closed just a little while longer until all the necessary technical stuff has been completed. Any outstanding enquiries will be dealt with as soon as I am able to open for business once more.  Meanwhile, thank you for your continued patience and I hope to bounce right back with KT Miniatures fully operational in a few days time.

KT Miniatures Is Temporarily Closed For Business Due To Mr KT's Bereavement

I am devastated to announce that due to the bereavement of "Mr KT", KT Miniatures is closed temporarily  for business until further notice. 

 Sadly Dave's long eight year battle with chronic illness came to an abrupt end yesterday during the much wished for transplant just wasn't meant to be for him.

His wonderful humour, cheerfulness and bravery has been utterly inspirational throughout and he will be greatly missed.   

Any outstanding emails or enquiries will be dealt with as soon as circumstances deem it possible once again. 

Thank you for your continued patience.

Workshops Over (For Now) - End Of An Era!

Last Saturday we held our very last Nostalgia In Miniature Workshop project at our Bicester Avenue Garden Centre venue with a truly super group of ladies. It was a lovely day but at the same time tinged with sadness, as it was the last time I will ever have the pleasure of working with my workshop colleague - Robin Britton, who also happens to be a great old mate too. 
I just about managed to snap this photo of Robin, she hates having her photo taken and has always gone to great lengths to try and dodge the camera! But on this occasion she thought I was taking a photo of Geraldine (she is the lady seated and a long standing stalwart of our workshops) who was busy working on her little shop. Ha ha, little did Robin know that  I had sneaked her into the left of the shot!

This was our last workshop project which everyone had great fun tackling last Saturday, and I think it was fair to say that it was probably the most versatile workshop project that we had ever embarked on, as the makers had a huge choice on colour, configuration of shelves, doors, components, etc. They could truly make it their own to suit. 

  CLICK HERE to view more photos of the day to see what everyone got up to.

But now Robin has officially retired from the professional world of miniatures and I am sure that anyone who knows Robin, would not hesitate to join me in wishing her well in her retirement. She and her Coombe Crafts will be greatly missed by a lot of people.

I am hoping to continue with workshops once Mr KT has embarked on a journey of recovery healthwise and then they will come under the banner of KT Miniatures. Meanwhile the tiny doors have finally closed on Nostalgia In Miniature Workshops, the workshop website will stay live until the end of July and then after that date, all traffic will be redirected to KT Miniatures website. Thank you to everyone who came to any of our workshops over the years...what a wonderful adventure it has been!
