What A Lovely Day!

A lovely, lovely day was spent yesterday at the delightful charity Haddenham Dolls House Exhibition & Fair . There were some wonderful miniatures of all descriptions on display with several dolls house clubs from surrounding towns displaying magnificent handiwork  entering the little village hall yesterday was like entering a magical world of an entirely different dimension! There were even some four legged friends from the Hearing Dogs For Deaf People strutting their stuff.....absolutely gorgeous!
This was the Thame Club display, the theme being based purely on items that members had made at professional workshops....mmmm those little gardens did look familiar!lol
Part of our Nostalgia In Miniature Workshops stand - all three projects in both scales from the Vintage Little Garden Theme 2011 workshops.
There were a handful of other artisans there, including me old mate Robin....of Coombe Crafts.

It was brilliant to meet so many of you who came and much entertaining banter ensued throughout the day! It was great to catch up with old friends and make new ones too.
I only had a 6ft table yesterday (unlike a massive 12ft stand at the Thame Fair) so I had to be very discerning on what I took. In the end I decided on having only "new" vintage/antique stock (not listed on the website) including a tiny GeeBee dolls house and a tin Marx dolls house. The good news for those of you who did not come is that I could not pursuade any visitors to purchase either of the dolls houses on the day....although one or two customers did waiver a little (lol).  So they will be going up for sale on my website this coming week along with some other antique/vintage treasures that were not sold.

I will also be busy over the next few days, listing lots of my newly handmade items to the do check the various pages on my Exclusive Items sections. All the current handmade stock that is listed on my website was on the stand yesterday and due to quite a bit being sold, I will have to embark on some considerable stock taking and make amendments accordingly to the Exclusive Items section....but not today!

Today I am going to have a much needed day off ...stock taking and amendments to the website will begin on Monday afternoon.

Thanks again to everyone who came soon as I hear how much was raised for the two charities, I will let you know. Congratulations to Freda and George Dorrell who put on such a wonderful and successful event ...we are already looking forward to the next one in two years time!!!

Yes it was a brilliant day Sandra. The atmosphere was terrific with everyone happy and friendly. Aaaah yes, thanks for your kind comment.....just thought I would make a little feature of the WW1 trunks as it is Remembrance Sunday today. Celia

Cheers for comment Dave. Yep, as I normally have a 12ft stand at Thame Fair, I had one heck of a lot of jiggling to do, in order to make everything fit!!! Good luck with the new fair at Droitwich next weekend. Rumour has it that its going to be fantastic!!! Hope lots of people go and folks....if you are going to that fair and reading this, please do go visit Dave's stand...aka Harvington Miniatures. He will have some amazing and extremely unique miniatures for sale!!!! Celia
