October Miniatura

Had a great weekend at Miniatura, Birmingham.   I travelled down on the Saturday, fair on Sunday, home on Monday AND I didn't spend all the budget so that can roll on to York in November!

Where I can, I'll list the sellers -

Fabric, The Silk Route;  brass strips, At Home with Mrs Hogarth;  wood moulding, Jennifers of Walsall  and laser cut detail panels, The Dolls House Builder.

Lights, Heidi Ott Miniatures;  plants, The Flower Lady;  woven trug;  resin figures, Eggers Delight;  lock, Sussex Crafts

Fabric, Blue Riband Fabrics;  Fireplace, Victoria Fasken;  decorative fire screens, Elite Petite Interiors;  slipper bath, Sussex Crafts.

I'm not sure yet whether this selection would work better in Marsh Hall or Netherton so I've posted it on both blogs!   The fire surrounds are from Eggers Delight and the chairs from Alison Davies Miniatures.

There were one or two sellers I had hoped to see who were not there which was a bit of a disappointment and there were quite a few items on my carefully crafted list that I didn't get, but I did however manage to make up for that by purchasing items that weren't on the list and some I hadn't even thought of so all in all, a good weekend. 


  1. Hello Irene,
    Fantastic purchases! You chose some wonderful items. everything looks very well made and realistic, though I must say I particularly like the Black fireplace. It is stunning!
    Big hug

  2. ooh Irene, lovely stuff. You managed to get some lights - I was struggling with that as usual. Love the slipper bath, AD's chairs, fire screens, and, and, and...

  3. You've picked up some really lovely things there, Irene. Those chairs are particularly special. I love them! I think they'd work anywhere. Sorry to hear you didn't get everything on your list, I'm sure you'll make up for it at York...

  4. Hi Irene! Your purchases look wonderful and very well thought out! The fireplaces are very elegant and those chairs are beautifully made! And what a bonus to have left-overs for York!! I can't wait to see these all put to work!

  5. Beautiful stuff Irene! The Victoria Fasken fireplace is super gorgeous - what an amazing find! I look forward to seeing all your treasures in their respective homes.
