Bishop Show Chicago Fall 2017

by brae  

It's mini show time again!  I headed to the Bishop Show - Chicago Fall 2017 event tonight and came home with a few goodies.  I also saw the classes for next year's Bishop International Show, so I have some things to consider.  :]

All About Miniatures.  A beautiful JBM Miniatures upholstered stool.

Iklectic Kollectibles.  This beautiful tiny doll is by Ethel Hicks.

The Little Dollhouse Company.  I am a sucker for white ceramics.  :D

Sir Thomas Thumb.  I did not buy these, but they were amazing to see.  Yes, those power tools work!

While I'm at it, I will share the birthday goodies from Debora.  Always in need of small accent tables, and HoM kits are perfect for that!

This delightful box has working hardware.  By Ron Stetkewicz Miniatures.

Rustic piggy.

Working padlock!!!!  :O  I haven't take it out to try it yet.

Owl cane.  The insert reads, "From an owl cane hand-sculpted by Linda Parr (1941-1985)."

Hardware from The Dolls House Mall and Olde Mountain Miniatures.

Hand crafted hammer.

Thanks so much, Debora!  :D

I can’t decide which of these is most wonderful!

I am awed by the idea of the mini power tools actually working, though.

Oh wow! Lots of goodies! I love the padlock and the push/pull hardware especially.

Jasper looks like he approves of the tables. And he’s looking very handsome too!

We were there!!! I met with inchbyinch interiors for materials for my 1:6 condo. I had brought my 2 main drape materials. I also got a teddy bear and seal for the new nursery i will be doing for my special commission babies. Sorry I missed you.

Did I tell you “properly” (been watching too much Downton Abbey) how much I appreciate all your build tips, beautiful finds, and wonderful items you make

Love all of these lovely finds and birthday gifts. What a wonderful & generous friend Debora is. :)
That owl cane is darling and the working padlock, wow.. I want one!
I’m quite partial to your Ethel Hicks doll too… I’ve never had much of a thing for dolls but I’m coming around to them these days and she is just so devilishly retro! I love her! Very Mad Men… Ahh.. now I want to do a mod sixties build! lol
