Dayton 3 Blind Mice Show - August 10-11, 2013

Recommended Posts

So things have been a bit hectic lately. However, I am excited about something. I made arrangements to do my first show as a miniature dealer. Is anyone making plans to go to the 3 Blind Mice Show in Dayton? If you do, stop by and see me. I will have special deals for forum members.

The map below shows the table location. I will also be at the Museum of Miniatures Indianapolis show in September and the Louisville Miniature Club show in October.

Are any of these shows going to have Internet participation? California has the Good Sam show in October, but it's not on your list :(

I am sticking to shows within a few hour drive of the house. I am trying to participate in the "A Miniature Mini" online show in August. I have no idea how she does it. Once I work out the logistics I will let you know.

I have spent some $$ on inventory for the shows, but will be taking orders at the shows and hopefully will have the website up and running. There are still a couple of issues and a LOT of products to load.

Awesome, best of luck at the show. I think it would be hard to be a vendor, I'd be too distracted with the other tables and meeting everyone. You have a helper right?

Not sure about a helper in Dayton. I will have some help at the other shows.

I think I may do Chicago in 2014, too.

Now I just need to figure out what to take with me. I have spent the weekend looking through my suppliers' websites and catalogs. Hopefully I will make the right choices.

Well, today I got a big box of items from Braxton Payne. My last shipment before the Dayton 3 Blind Mice show next week. I have never seen his work in person. The pottery is great, but the fireplaces are amazing. I ordered fireplaces in 1:12, 1:24 and 1:48. The detail with the bricks and sooting are great. He makes everything by hand and does only one or two shows each year. He told me that after 25 years he will no longer offer quarter scale vignettes. It is sad to hear, but at least his fireplaces, pottery and garden tools are still available. Here are a couple of fireplace pics for those who have not seen his work. There is a one inch colonial walk in and half inch scale 'Adam.'

Greg, those fireplaces are amazing! I just wish my monitor didn't make the soot look neon blue!

Part of that is the camera on my phone. I even tried making some adjustments through Photoshop and it didn't help. I wanted to do a better job of showing the pot hooks and the relative size. I am going to take some pictures of them with a 'real' digital camera.

Thank you! The coupons are printed and in the car. It will be fun to bring my niece the Alaska Jr. Grand Champion ribbon dollhouse builder. :thumbup:

She will love it!

      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.

      Here we go! The NAME National Convention ends with a show this week and soon we are looking at several miniature shows throughout the US. Below is a list of shows that I will be attending as a vendor. This is very different from what I have done in the past, but things are different now. If you are going to any of these, please stop and say hello.
      August 15-16         Dayton, OH 3 Blind Mice Show
      August 22-24         Aztec Wholesale Show in Aurora, OH
      August 28-29         Chicago Fall Show from Tom Bishop
      September 5-7      Orlando Miniaturia
      September 11-12  Nashville, TN presented by Harville Productions
      September 18-19  Indianapolis presented by the Museum of Miniature Houses
      October 24            Louisville, KY
      November 5-8       Philadelphia Miniaturia Wholesale and Retail Shows
      November             Chicago Wee "c" Miniature Show (tentative)
      I know there are other shows, but these are the ones I am attending. More details on each as we get closer. The Bishop show will have more vendors than in the past. Orlando is a new show and it is a holiday weekend, so it is hard telling about attendance. It is on Disney grounds, so that may help.

      Hi All !! The Chicago Miniature Shows are just around the corner!!   :w00t:  :w00t:  I am surprised that there hasn't been more talk about it. 
      I know several forum members will be there. Who is attending?????
      I will be setup at the 3BM show at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Schaumburg.  I have attached a coupon for those attending to save $1 off admission. If nothing else, stop by and say hello.
