|My Mum purchased this for me for my Hallway. Thanks Mum.|
As promised I thought I would share with you my purchases from the fair. As I am working towards furnishing my Victorian Dollhouse I purchased with that in mind. If it wasn't from this era (or as close as I could get to this era) I wasn't buying it.
However for anyone with a vintage or modern dollhouse the Sydney fair has plenty for you too. I have to admit, it has made me think…is one dollhouse enough? I'd really like to get a vintage Triang 1930's/40's and a modern dollhouse to add to my collection. Ahh the possibilities!
Anyway to the purchases:
|It's a pencil sharpener. But with a bit of paint and some records it will be perfect|
|A Phoenix Miniature (old stock?) Mangle for the laundry.|
|Parts of the white-metal kit….lots of gluing and painting ahead.|
|Croquet Set for the children's room.|
|A fresh fruit delivery. I will probably change the labels to vintage Australian ones.|
|One of my favourite finds. A Lidi Stroud (Basketcase Miniatures) fishing creel.|
This has to be seen in person. The weaving is teeny tiny and FABULOUS!
|A closer shot of the Fishing Creel.|
|Duelling Pistols. These will need a little case. So another DIY project is on my never ending list of DIY.|
|I met the lovely Michelle from Michelle's Miniatures at the fair. Her books are magnificent!|
|Another Phoenix Kit. Sewing Machine.|
|Toys for the nursery.|
