From the Chairman - New Magazine Covers

The Good Sam show has an article in the July/August 2012 issue of Dollhouse Miniatures magazine. It is a gallery featuring the work of the fine furniture artisans who were dealers at the 2011 show. Each year, highly talented miniature furniture makers within the U.S. and from Canada, England, Europe and Japan attend Good Sam. They offer an amazing range of exceptional furniture.

This unique Butterfly Collector's table and chair from the Steampunk Collection of Brian "Rainbow Hand" and Kathy Tepper is on the cover.

In a two-part gallery, the February 2013 issue of American Miniaturist showcases the "small scale" artisans who participated in the 2012 Good Sam Show. Part one devotes 13 pages to the work of seven artisans at the show who offer kits to build small scale structures. Part two has 8 pages on the unique offerings of six artisans at Good Sam who sell small scale food, furniture, accessories and landscaping.

Rustic lighthouse in quarter-scale by Mel Yost, Mel's Miniatures, is on the cover.
