Tom Bishop Show July 2011

Got back from the Tom Bishop Miniature Fair in Anaheim last night after a fabulous time! It was my first show in America and it was great fun. :)

My online shop is back open and I'll be listing items that were not sold in the next few days.

I spent some time with the lovely (and uber talented) Kathy Obrenski of Wee Little West and her husband Tim. Met a fantastic lady called Natalia of Scarlet Sails Miniatures and bought this incredibly cute Christmas stocking from her. Also made friends with the beautiful Maritza of Maritza Miniatures who so generously gave me an exquisite yellow (my favourite colour) cushion with tiny hand-painted silk bird on it! Oh my word - I was so thrilled.

Here are some photos of my Hummingbird Miniatures section of the display before I left for the show.

The above is me at the show. Below are pictures taken at the show.

These are the wonderful miniatures I brought back with me! Macaroons by Wee Little West, stocking by Scarlet Sail Miniatures and cushion by Maritza Miniatures. Be sure to click over to their sites, follow their blogs if you're not already! :)


  1. Glad to hear you had a good time at the show. I so want to go!!

    Great display!!


  2. Love the pictures thankyou Caroline! I love to see the shows, and you look very cool, calm and collected ready for the rush! I hope you did really well, and its inspired you to do a London one! The stall looked amazing, so pleased you met some lovely people! Kate xxx

  3. Thank you both so much!

    Kate - I was going to email you today to say sorry for not having more pictures of the show in general and other people's stalls. I asked my bf to walk around taking some but he ended up helping me out on my stall so much that he didn't get any good ones at all (a couple of blurred ones!) Next time we'll share pics of the event a bit more! And yes, hoping to get into the Kensington and Ally Pally shows this year if not sold out. :)

  4. You must have packed up early becuase I didnt see you :( Unfortunately I got there really late at 20 minutes before closing because traffic was sooo horrible it took me 2 hours to get there instead of forty minutes. I was sooo bummed because I was mainly going there to see your booth. :( Well I guess I will have to wait till next year. Sorry I missed you.

  5. Hiya,
    Oh no! It would have been lovely to have seen you. I don't know what happened because I was there Friday night and all of Saturday from 9:45 am until about 7:30 pm - I was one of the last to leave. I am flattered you were interested in seeing my stall. Message me for a coupon for 10% off something at my store. :)

  6. Lol! Thanks very much.... :)
