Jersey Dolls House & Miniatures Club Exhibition August 21st

Every so often a customer tells me of a special miniatures event/project that they are involved in and I am always pleased to "spread the word"! Today I am delighted to let you know of a wonderful event that might be a few months away yet but if you are planning on going to Jersey for a holiday, you may like to take special note.
St Brelade's Parish Hall is the pink building in this wonderful painting by Barbara Kendall-Davies
Barbara Kendall-Davies whose name you might well recognise if you are an ardent opera fan or indeed follower of KT Miniatures Old Dolls House Gallery, has forwarded me details of their Jersey Dolls House & Miniatures Club Exhibition which is taking place on Sunday 21st August 2011 from 10.00am - 5.00pm at St. Brelades's Parish Hall, St. Aubin's Harbour, Jersey.

All proceeds will be in aid of two charities-   Help The Heroes and  Motor Neurone Society.  

The theme is market stalls and there will be dolls houses and room boxes on show plus a competition with questions based on the objects in the exhibition.  There will also be a sales table with handmade miniatures and a raffle with a variety of prizes, as well as refreshments and home-made cakes. So if you are in that area during go along. Barbara herself is a collector of vintage dolls houses, has a HUGE collection of dolls houses and miniatures, is a retired opera singer,biographer of  Pauline Viardot Garcia plus as you can see from the painting...a very talented artist too!

I have just updated the above info today (Friday 20th) as Barbara tells me that they have decided to split all money raised from this event between two charities: Help The Heroes and Motor Neurone Society. Two worthy causes indeed.

I hope that this event attracts a big crowd and raises loads for the charities. Good luck Jersey Dolls House Club! Celia
