Just back from a fantastic Kensington Dollshouse show, and after updating the website shop, galleries and just finished pages….
But I also have to salute those shoppers who, like all good boy scouts, come to a show prepared – with photos, notebooks, fabric and wallpaper samples so they can be sure that what they buy will work with what they have already – BRAVO!
As is usual for shows, I managed to make some special pieces, not all of which made it back to go in the wesite shop!
However these ‘show specials’ often lead to new stock items and many of the new things made for Kensington will soon been in the website shop, like the library bookcase and bookcase desks.
Fortunately I do still have a couple of Macaws left after the show although the cockatoos sold out they will be joining them in the shop by the weekend!
(Macaws and cockatoos are £39 each).
Although the tea trollies (£39) and the drinks/cigar trollies (£39) sold out at the show they will soon be back in the website shop – to join the working grandfather clock (£47)
It was great to get back to beds for the show with these two four posters – the ginger and gold one was bought by a couple – he got the rusty and restoration ready Model T Ford and she got the bed as anniversary presents to each other (decided on by the wife!)
The raspberry and blue one has just been added to the shop website £129 – although I am thinking about doing a set of furniture to go with it!
With York show now looming on the horizon, (York Racecourse June 19th) I’ll be flat out again making stock to replace that sold at Kensington – and hopefully one or two more one-off pieces like the carpenters workbench (Right) which is now in the website shop £89.
