Summer's here at the Miniatura office
So it’s mid-June and as the sun beats down on our office window, short sleeves have become the uniform of choice, the temptations of an ice-cream with lunch are nearly irresistible and, in these circumstances here at Miniatura, our thoughts turn naturally to.. the Autumn.
Each show takes months to prepare and whilst most people are sipping long cool drinks, enjoying the heady sounds of lazy bumble bees or watching something kick-off in Brazil we are considering stand measurements of wall stands or trying to make the most efficient use of a power socket as we create the plan for September.
Now, before the violins and sympathy start getting out of hand, let’s look at some pictures we have from the last couple of shows just to remind us all of why we do what we do at “Miniatura”.
I’m sure miniatures like these would exist without exhibitions. I’m sure it would be impossible to quench the creative spark that inspires these makers. I am also sure that it’s because of shows like Miniatura that we actually get to see them. Work like this was never supposed to be kept hidden away, the sheer joy and happiness in these few small things is undeniable. That’s why we are happy to sit in our office, baking slightly, creating an event we feel is worthy of the work on show there.
You’ll be able to enjoy the latest work from exhibitors like these “hot off the press” at the next show – 20th & 21st September 2014 – Advance tickets on sale now.
Model Village Miniature Kits have exhibited with us at Miniatura since 2005 and we'd like to thank them for their support and wish Louise well with her new venture which we hope will be a blooming success!
"Louise and Marlene of Model Village Miniature Kits, would like to inform everyone that we are retiring from the miniature scene. Our last fair will be the Spring Miniatura. We would like to thank all of our customers over the last 14 years for their custom and kind words. We have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves but it is now time for a change. Marlene is going for a well earned rest and Louise is starting a new venture, drying rose petals from her garden and turning them into confetti."
