Chicago Spring Showcase of Miniatures July 2021

by brae  

Whew! Long time since the last post. I've been reorganizing my house and crafting spaces, but I have also been making minis behind the scenes.

There was finally a mini show on! TheĀ Chicago Spring Showcase of Miniatures is on through Saturday, so you still have time to shop if you're in the Chicagoland area. It was great to see people I haven't seen since 2019! The time does fly by. Now, on to the goodies!

Calico Garden. Bee box

Bundt cake and peeps donuts

T&D Miniatures and Dollhouses. These folks are the hosts of the show. :]

All About Miniatures. Greg has a huge selection of kits in various scales, landscaping and delightful OOAK creations.

Sago palm

Herb table

Skeleton table

J and K Minis. They have a huge selection of unpainted metal minis.

Jancrafted. I bought the last of her amazing trees. I can't decide if I would plant it outside of a house or have a real Christmas tree indoors. Either way, Chester is sure to climb it. :D

She had vintage goodies as well.

A Pocket Full of Wishes. Always a wonderful collection of handmade and vintage minis. I love this sewing machine/spatula tractor! :D

This is such a cute gift-wrapped house.

A Little More in Miniatures. Another staple for landscaping and interesting accessories.

WCD Miniatures. A mix of vintage and new. I always find goodies here.

Breakfast in bed, coming right up!

D-Tales Miniatures. So many beautiful pieces to choose from.

itty bitty mini (m)art. A new vendor with a fantastic selection of retro tech. They have 1:6 scale as well.

Fabulous finds! They're all lovely and that little Cheez Whiz made me smile. I'm hoping that the local show here goes ahead this September - it would be nice to attend in person and catch up with everyone.

You came home with great treasures. I have a real problem picking stuff. I have it in my hand, ponder it, and put it back them come home kicking myself all the way because I didn't buy that certain item. I need to be more spontaneous. Anyway, I don't know which of your items is my favorite. All? The Denver Miniature and Toy Museum will hold its annual show the second week in September. Cannot wait! It is a big show with classes and awards, but I just drive down for the shopping. It surely felt good for you to get back with all your friends.
