Each year, the Show brings together more than 100 U.S. and international artisans and dealers, including a number of I.G.M.A. Artisans and Fellows. They offer collectors unique, well-crafted 1-inch, 1/2-inch, and 1/4-inch scale miniatures from around the world.

At the Show - Exhibits

This week's exhibits of exceptional miniatures in small scale were put on display at past Good Sam Shows. The tea tables are by IGMA Fellow Carol Hardy, Guild Administrator, International Guild of Miniature Artisans. The 1:12 scale tea table is in Carol's collection. The half-inch scale tea table is from the personal collection of Barbara Jones, Chairman of the Good Sam Show. The two chairs are part of Carol Hardy's collection. Both the tea tables and chairs were exhibited at the 2010 show. The Gallery of the Guild will have a table at the 2012 Good Sam Show. www.igma.org

The 1" scale stained chair is by W. C. Auger 1985. The 1/2" scale painted chair is signed: dj in black ink.

Jock's Cabin in quarter-scale is by Denise Sanders and was exhibited at the 2007 Good Sam Show. The workmanship and detail are exquisite. The more one looks at it, the more one sees and is intrigued by it.
