Many thanks to everyone who came along to see us at the annual Thame Dolls House & Miniatures Fair last Saturday....hope you had a great time, we certainly did! What lovely chats we had!
I remembered to actually take my camera this time......and all these pics were taken with just a few minutes to go before the opening time.
Sorry folks....my gorgeous G&J Lines No 74 was sold!
As always, much thought went into choosing a diverse selection of both KT Miniatures' handmade items, as well as antique and vintage stock.
My helper for the day was daughter Kate (who was bribed to come back from uni especially for the event) and did a splendid job. She is doing a maths degree so put me to shame with her ability to do some amazing mental adding up.....I struggled along as usual with the calculator!
Am delighted to report that much was sold on the day.......and once all the takings and after sales were added up, this turned out to be the second most profitable Thame Fair for us ever (I have been doing this fair since it's very beginning in 2004)! So a very special thanks to organisers Felicity and Ron for putting on yet again another lovely and successful event!
Although there were visibly less people through the doors, many of the standholders still did good steady trade and the local club put on an exhibition of some of their creations. The charity stands appeared to be busy too, including the sales table. Sadly, as often happens at these events, one or two artisans did not do very well, I have given up trying to fathom out the reason why, as sometimes there just does not seem to be any logical reason for it, their creations were beautiful, stunning and competitively priced?
But now, my BIG stocktake is done and I hope to begin listing some of the unsold stock to KT Miniatures website this week. I will begin with the handmade items, which will appear in KT Miniatures Little Handmade Emporium - but please be patient as it takes absolutely ages to photograph and individually list each item.
