At the Show: Exhibits

"We are very proud of our display area and that it has stayed vibrant over the past 37 years," says Barbara Jones, Chairman. "We welcome exhibits, new or from the past, and are eager for participation from first time exhibitors."  Scales range from 1:12 scale down to 1:144 scale Here are a few of the exhibits that will be at this year's show.

"Shipwrecked" is a new room box just completed by Connie Sauve, The China Doll. "I bought this Eugene Kupjack roombox on eBay. It has been sitting in my mini stash for years," Connie tells us. "I didn't have enough silver to fill it, so I decided I'm going to turn it into a shop that sells model ships, since I have a whole collection of little ships. The front windows are the perfect size to display model ships."

"Girl with Pearl Earring" as interpreted by Michael Puff, the Good Sam Show photographer.  The structure is from a Bluette Meloney workshop.

"Master Chan's Garden" from the collection of Martha Puff, Show Publicist and writer of the Good Sam Show Blog. "The structure was a gift from Bluette Meloney. It is from her Madame Chan's Garden workshop," Martha says. "Mine is Master Chan's Garden. The figure is by doll artist Kathi Kuti of Canada."
