The Queens Birthday long weekend here in Australia means I can squeeze in a blog post. Over on Instagram I promised I would share my photos of the 29th Miniature’s and Dolls’ House Fair held on 5th and 6th May at Netball Centre Olympic Park. This year we exhibited and had a stall.
So impressed with all the displays I forgot to take photos of my mini haberdashery store and of my dad’s ‘junk food’ lane.
My mum created a bag and hat shop many years ago. She subsequently created some framed pieces which would look lovely in a girls room, sewing room or craft room. We also sold room boxes which my dad made. He made the room box, floor and furniture. This is our mini stall.
I created some brooches showcasing different crafts which I sold on the day. You can see them laying flat. They all measure on average 5cm x 6cm [2.5 in x 2.5 in]. Mini knitting, crochet, macrame, quilting, weaving, cross stitch, sashiko, felt and ribbon embroidery. Here they are close up.
Here are some of the displays that caught my eye. The level of detail is what astounds any miniaturist. So zoom in or take an extra second or two admire the craftsmanship in these pieces.
