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 - Exhibit

Sometimes miniaturists will bring a favorite exhibit back to the Good Sam Show that they displayed in an earlier year. That is the case with this week's delightful room box inspired by Mary Engelbreit's illustrations. The exhibit plays off the old saying, "Life is just a bowl of cherries." Like Mary Engelbreit's first greeting card, it features a chair piled high with bowls, and the legend "Life is just a chair of bowlies."

Kathleen Stats from Vallejo, California first exhibited her captivating 1:12 scale "Life is Just a Chair of Bowlies" at the 2009 Good Sam Show. Its humor is timeless and its charm is irreplaceable. Kathleen has been creating miniatures for about 40 years.  Photos by Connie Sauve, Exhibit Chairman.
