Hello all. Had an amazing weekend at the Melbourne miniatures fair where I had the good fortune to meet some really great people.
Thanks to all the VAME folks for squeezing me in and making me feel welcome. As a dealer, it was a fantastic atmosphere. I met a lot of very enthusiastic, helpful and encouraging people, both dealers and customers alike. The positive comments I received were overwhelming, so thanks everyone for making my first Melbourne fair a huge success!
I did make the mistake of complimenting some 1:48 scale gypsy wagons and commenting that I was working on designs for one of my own. I was promptly chastened and told all about copyright.... Hmmm, apparently these gentlemen own the copyright to gypsy wagons. Someone should tell all those other mini makers out there that have gypsy wagons in their range. Well, I guess if that's the most annoying thing to come out of the weekend, then I did pretty well I reckon!
A little peek at my table:
