From the Chairman: 2012 Show Coverage - Dolls House World, U.K.

The 2012 Good Sam Show received six pages of fabulous show coverage in the March 2013 issue of Dollshouse World in the U.K. From the article, here are a few photos of exquisite 1:12 scale miniatures offered at the 2012 Show. All of these talented artisans are returning to this year's October show. We give special thanks to Richard Jennings, Editor, for including Good Sam in his beautiful magazine.
