We came back from the Sturbridge Show exhausted, but in a good way. I only had the chance to take a few photos of our table as we were setting up, so please forgive the mess! We were close to the entrance doors this year, so we really got caught up in the excitement of the customers as they came in. Because of a combination of bad timing and weather issues (Hurricane Sandy!) most of our previous shows have been haven't been too well attended. Because the preview on Saturday night was a bit quiet, we were worried that Sunday (General Admission) wouldn't draw much of a crowd. But Sunday ended up being one of the most crowded shows we've been to in a while!
I tried out a few new display methods for this show. Since most of what I make is pretty tiny, they often don't show up against our grey velvet backdrop. In the bottom right corner, you can see one of my new hanging displays. I bagged all the little paper items I make, like letters, envelopes, etc. and made big labels with a sample of each different item.
As always, Mom's dolls were spread across the table, with my little accessories tucked around and between.
BED miniatures, a dresser kit which I'm hoping will fit in the master bedroom of my dollhouse, quite a few brass findings, and some flocking and plastic greenery from Ladybug. The fabric and lace at the bottom of the photos were a few of Mom's purchases from JoAnne Roberts Miniatures.
