In a post on January 7, 2012, we announced that Pat Carter, Good Sam Show Committee, died on January 5, 2012. She had been in charge of the highly successful White Elephant Sale for many years.
The family has made the decision to part with Pat's huge miniature collection. A three-day Estate Sale is scheduled for March 24, 25, 26 (Saturday, Sunday, and Monday) from 10:30 AM to 5:00 PM at Shellie's Miniature Mania, 732 Laurel Street San Carlos, CA 94070, 650-593-4921, email@example.com, www.shelliesminis.com
An avid collector, Pat's collection contains saloons, general stores, Southwestern scenes, kitchens, and room boxes of all sizes. She had many shadow boxes and scenes--some from Brooke Tucker classes. There is an extensive collection of furniture, dolls--most of which are handmade, tons of accessories, and so much more.
Pat had a miniature store at one time and a miniature club in Eureka. She had good taste and bought nice collector pieces plus made up some class boxes. Everything is very well done.
