the dreaded winter months

It's now the time of year I don't like, dark, cold and damp, yuk.
But it won't stop me from working on new ideas for next years Miniature Fairs.
The above is one of my one off sets, 5 hand turned bottles with copies of old labels, the majority of my labels are now designed by myself.
This milk of magnesia label is one of my own designs (the 'Harvington Miniatures' part does not come on my bottles) this and many other labelled hand turned bottles were very popular at the new Midland Fair, a fair which is definitely on my list of must do's for next year, Nov 18th 2012.
Must say I had a very good day at the Fair and all the customers seemed to be enjoying themselves too.
 A lot more bottles and other miniatures will be added to my range for next years fairs and if all goes well I hope to be back on the road in March.
As I was asked quite a few times about half scale on Sunday I now working on some 1/24th bottles which will be added to my range for next years fairs, am quite pleased with the way these are going, these little ones measure under 1/2" tall.

almost ready

Just a small selection of what will be on my table 'Harvington Miniatures' on Sunday 20th November at the Chateau Impney Hotel in Droitwich, this is a new fair with many established and recognised miniaturists displaying their work.
Already there is a buzz of excitement for this one, if you can make it then do come along.
If you do then please come and say hello at stand 95.

For me, all that remains is to pack my boxes and I will be ready.
But I won't be standing idle, I shall be making a few last minute miniatures, perhaps another pair of quirky goblets like the ones in the photograph.

something old something NEW

Photo above is just a small selection of our new range, more will be revealed at our next fair which is in Droitwich on November 20th.
Anyone who saw our old stand and miniatures may be a little surprised when they see the new stand, we have diversified quite a lot, many many new items have been added to our range.
The medicine bottles above and along with a lot more are all unique, all hand turned by myself, the labels I have also designed, plus they don't fall off.
A good point of our bottles is they all stand perfectly, none are lopsided.
See more at the HARVINGTON MINIATURES stand, stand No 95 at the Chateau Impney Nov 20th.
Our stand only contains miniatures that we have made ourselves, nothing is bought in.

We are now working on our own jars which will be filled with pickles and much much more.
