Thank you to everyone who came on Saturday to the annual Thame Dolls House & Miniatures Fair. It was great to see so many of you!! I remembered to take some photos of the stand before the event opened this year...that's a first!
As I had been suffering with a nasty virus for days leading up to the event and had actually lost my voice by the Friday, my lovely daughter succumbed to bribes and agreed to come back from uni' for the day to help me out....what a little treasure!
Business was brisk as soon as the doors opened but then after a couple of hours, the crowds died down and it remained very quiet for the rest of the day. It was apparent to everyone that the general attendance was down quite considerably-maybe the recent bad weather was a factor.
I do have quite a bit of handmade stock and vintage stock leftover from this event now. So after a grand stock take, I will begin listing the handmade items first and then the vintage bits and bobs.
Please note that I have decided officially to discontinue making my vintage style lino now, as it simply is no longer viable to make. I have sold out of all 1/12th scale and have just a handful of 1/24th scale left.
Felicity and Ron Holland, the fair organisers, will let us know the total raised for Breast Cancer Campaign as soon as possible.....fingers crossed, it will be lots from all the various charity attractions!
