Embarking On Our 15th Year Of Trading - New Resources Page For 1930s/1940s Miniatures

I would just like to wish anyone reading this A HAPPY NEW YEAR for 2011 and hope that you had a wonderful festive break.  

KT Miniatures began in January 1997 which  means that 2011 will be my 15th year of trading..... I have to keep pinching myself as I can hardly believe it!


When I embarked on KT Miniatures all those years ago changing complete direction jobwise after a career in nursery nursing, creating simple miniatures & room boxes literally off my kitchen table, I had no idea that KT Miniatures would build into the business it is now and that I would still be here, all these years later working full time at a job that I absolutely love. Although I am sure  that 2011 will not be without its difficulties for many of us in business, I am forever optimistic and bursting forward with ideas for the new year.


 I do not open again officially for business until Monday 3rd January, however I have been quietly beavering a little behind the scenes, tweaking my website. Which leads me onto say that my RECOMMENDED RESOURCES PAGE FOR 1930s/1940s MINIATURES has now gone live! This is something that I have been thinking about for a while, as am frequently asked  for information on relevant books, magazines etc. that I could recommend for 1930s/40s projects.


So here you are.......I have compiled a page of information, including amongst other categories, relevant book titles, magazines, UK museums plus various artisans who produce some amazing1930s/1940s miniatures. I have even included links to three inspirational online videos, one being the 1940s wartime house that was based on the Channel 4 TV series in 2000. 
The compilation of suggestions on this page is by no means a definitive list as I aim to add much more as time permits.

Hope you find it useful and inspirational.

Huge congratulations Celia!! You continue to make fantastic 'authentic' miniatures and inspiring room boxes as well as sourcing great vintage items. I look forward to more of the same. And a big thank you for the great resource you've provided.

Oh well never mind, shall just go and blow the cobwebs and dust away from my workroom and get working on that commission that should have been completed before Xmas. Tis a good feeling to be back!
