Haddenham Dolls House Exhibition Is On This Saturday-Hope You Can Come!

KT Miniatures will be attending the Haddenham Dolls House Exhibition this Saturday (23rd November). 

Haddenham Dolls House Exhibition
Haddenham Village Hall, Bucks, HP17 8EE 
10.00am - 4.00pm
Admission £4.00 Adult/£1.00 Child

All of the admission fee will be split between two charities - Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and Leukaemia Research. Organisers George and Freda Dorrell have been running this event now for many years but sadly this will be their very last, so we hope that lots of you can come along to Haddenham Village Hall on Saturday and enjoy the lovely miniatures whilst at the same time, help raise lots of money for two real worthwhile causes!

There will be various exhibits from four local dolls house clubs and individuals, several artisans with miniatures to buy, other exhibits (even a rather wonderful Lego railway), charity tables including a raffle plus there will be a sealed bid auction of a beautiful 32" long dolls house decorated by James Parker (as seen in Dolls House & Miniature Scene magazine I understand). 

KT Miniatures will be there (of course), with most of my handmade items as currently seen on KT Miniatures website, plus in addition I am taking an abundance of antique and vintage stock that currently does not appear on KT Minitatures website! Have taken a few photos so that you can have a sneak preview of just some of the old items that will be available on the day.
Amongst them is an early 1900s pressed German sideboard, an early 1900s fretwork display cabinet with contents, 1930s German metal sewing machine, unusual wooden radiator, bisque German dolls, clocks of various descriptions, old tea set, some T&B items such as cooker, fridge, saucepan set and some 1930s  Pit-a-Pat furniture.
There will also be some vintage Barton Tudor, Tri-ang and Twigg furniture from the 1960s. 
Further more, there will be a small scale early 1900s sink,  toilet and decorative table, antique fenders....plus lots more besides! Oh....and a couple of boxes filled to the brim with random vintage miniatures for you to have a good old rummage through to your hearts content, all at bargain prices!

I will be taking at least one old dolls house to sell, this 1930s Dolly Mixture Dolls House. 
Just look at those wonderful square paned pre-war Romside windows with the rod hinges down the sides! However, as I'm only having a 6ft stand (unlike the Thame Fair where I have a 12ft stand), space will be limited. If I can fit another dolls house in the car and behind my stand, I will do so.

Nostalgia In Miniature Workshops Display
A view of various projects from "Our Little Garden Theme".
Robin Britton (Coombe Crafts) and I shall also have a display of all our Nostalgia In Miniature Workshops' projects to date, in both 1/12th and 1/24th scales for you to see in all their glory.  We will also be taking our Seaside Scene which as you know, was featured in the Dolls House & Miniature Scene magazine throughout the summer as a "how to make" project, and is now up for sale (50% of proceeds to be donated to Breast Cancer Campaign)...offers welcome on the day. Would make a very special Christmas present for someone!
Plus we shall have news of our Spring Workshop including details of a brand new and very exciting workshop venue! This display will be situated in between both Coombe Crafts and KT Miniatures stands so both of us will be on hand throughout the day if you would like to know more about our workshops. 

As already mentioned before, Haddenham has it's own train station just 15 mins walk from the village hall. Thame is only 2 miles away and Aylesbury approx 5 miles away. 

Hope you can come and help make Saturday's event a very special day indeed..... and if you do come, please do drop by KT Miniatures and say "hi"! Would be great to see you....I shall be on my own (my usual little helper is now at uni' having an absolute ball!!!!lol)
