Sydney miniature show #1
Hello all. I had a great weekend in Sydney, attending the miniature fair for the first time. I did pretty well with my sales, enough to cover my costs and buy a few goodies, plus got lots and lots of oohs and ahhs, which is always positive! Had the chance to meet some people I hadn't met but had been in contact with over the years, which was really great (hello Linda!! It was so nice to chat!). I hear that numbers were down though, and some traders didn't do so well. It's such a shame and also quite hard for me to believe - the standard was so high with some really amazing things for sale. Here is what I purchased:
Some tiny paper clips (squeee!):
Some ladies toiletries and two fans by Di (no website unfortunately; her stuff was so beautiful and well-priced):
And a tiny sweet little teddy (made by Di's friend), a tiny teapot and a beautiful Margaret Crosswell bust:
Had I had more money, I would've bought many more items. I didn't look around too much at the tables as there were just so many beautiful things, it was too heart-breaking!! I ogled Kim's Miniatures table, which again was really reasonably priced (and needless to say stunning) but given my money shortage, no purchases. However....... My husband, unbeknownst to me, also was very impressed by her dolls and bought me this as a surprise!
Being behind perspex in a little box, she is quite hard to photograph, but she is really exquisite. I feel extremely spoilt! Next time, I hope to bring her home a little Kim's Miniatures friend. I took some photos of the exhibits so will post those shortly. Have a great day everyone!
