It is not often (thankfully) that Thame (a small sleepy Oxfordshire UK market town) hits the news but apparently Thame hit the main news today and I have been blissfully unaware of it all...as I was busy being imaginative with packaging due to a sudden influx of lots of lovely orders and a sudden lack of suitable boxes! And then Robin, my Nostalgia In Miniature Workshop colleague and fellow Thame resident, informed me that we were practically on top of the epicentre of an earthquake last night. Ummm...and I slept through it all! Ha ha...and apparently so Robin did too...perhaps its our age!
Thankfully it was only a magnitude of 2.3 and the worst that happened was that neighbours and fellow Thame friends were shaken in their beds/houses momentarily and some talk about hearing something that sounded like an explosion or big bang?
Oh well...there we are then.
Am just starting to list the various remaining c1920s Bertha Penrose/Ralph Wright (connections to the Bloomsbury Set) antique dolls house furniture to KT Miniatures' website that were left unsold from Thame Fair. But the whole process is taking ages and it will probably be tomorrow now when the button is pressed to make it go live.
These are only just some that are going up for sale - there are other pieces too, all being rather rare and quite special that just don't come along very often.
