Back From Sturbridge!

We had a ton of fun this past weekend at Sturbridge. This was the first show where we didn't lay out all miniatures we were bringing beforehand- we just kept packing them up as we made them, so we didn't really realize how much we had brought until we started setting up!
We had about five hours to set up, and we used most of that time, though we were so nervous that we probably fussed with everything a lot more than necessary. It's hard to see, but that top level was absolutely CRAMMED with miniatures.

I didn't show any of mom's dolls before the show, but she brought quite a few. This potato seller was the first doll she sold Saturday night at the preview.
His whiskers were a last minute addition two nights before we left! Mom dressed him several weeks ago, but he never got packed away because it seemed like there was something missing. Adding the bushy sideburns and mustache did the trick! His vest came from the most perfectly worn leather glove. His cart was purchased, but Mom made the potatos to fill it.
The only fly in the ointment was that the poison book box I made went missing sometime Sunday morning. It was upsetting, not so much because of the loss of the book itself, but because it made it harder to trust all the other genuinely lovely customers.

Overall though, we had a fantastic time, and are already planning to do it again next year. We met so many wonderful people, and enjoyed catching up with others we already knew. I'll post again soon.
