Bishop Show -- Chicago August 10-12

Recommended Posts

Okay, since I am still fairly new to minis (one year) I am not familiar with all of the shows. I am thinking about running up to Chicago in a couple of weeks for the Bishop show. I know it isn't anything like the Spring show, but is it worth attending? Is anyone from the forum going? It is only a three hour drive for me and I am thinking about making a weekend out of it with the wife.

All thoughts, comments and notes on attending are welcome. I think it would be great if anyone from our little GL family wanted to get together for lunch or dinner or something. I am always up for learning from others.

Well I always like to get to the shows, they're fun. Are there vendors on that list you're interested in seeing? If so, then it's certainly worth the trip. 3 hours isn't too bad, and I'm sure you and your wife can find loads to do in Chicago over a weekend!

If there are others attending I'd be interested in getting together for lunch, it's a tad further for me but I've been itching for a trip to the Art Institute.

I really didn't look that closely at the vendor list. We do Chicago weekends a few times a year and I figure we are due. Sometimes we run up to Gurnee and go a little nuts at the Mills shopping center.

I live five minutes from this show if I don't make the three lights between my house and the hotel. :lol: I will be there. It's a nice little venue with good vendors. If you like Chicago weekends, I'd say it's worth seeing.

      This was a Halloween Shop I made using a small kit from miniatures.com that is no longer made. I made the bricks out of paperclay. Some of the items are scrapbook pieces, vintage charms, and printables I made from vintage images I found online. The green skull head is hand painted by me. The chair is from Michaels and is distressed using a rust paint.

      The Kansas City show is coming up June 9 and 10 in Lee's Summit, MO. There are several classes available, including some new ones and another Dana Burton class.

      I'll be there both days and am signed up for several classes, plus Mom and I may be joined by all the ladies who are in our new mini club. Who else is planning to come?

      I just wanted to let everyone know that CIMTA this year has wholesale & retail. By offering retail we were able to attract a lot more exhibitors that didn't want to wholesale.
      Please join us! The rooms are super affordable and if you sign up for our mailing list you get 75% off your tickets. That makes entrance only $3.75 for two days when you pre-purchase online.
      The rooms are super affordable, and the mailing list for discount tickets is here:

      Hi all! There is a miniature show in Nashville, TN this weekend if you can make it. Miniature Collector had published that a miniature show in Nashville was cancelled. That is NOT this show. It should be a great time with lots of awesome vendors.

      Has anyone else heard about the show happening in Chicago? I just found out about it this morning and they are offering classes too! It'll be where the Bishop Show used to be for years. Right across the street from Woodfield mall and IKEA! Here's the link to read more about it
