Exhibit #2 - "Provence Kitchen"

Larry and Betty Herman of Walnut Creek, CA have exhibited their miniature scenes at Good Sam for many years. They have been dealers at the Show since 1991. Selling as Itty Bitty Builder, they carry a fine selection of vintage dolls, toys, Windsor furniture, and country accessories. Here is the first one of their two exhibits from last year's show.

"Provence Kitchen" in 1:12 scale. "Several years ago we decided we wanted a European kitchen and starting collecting and making things for it,” Larry says. "An oil painting of the Provence area and a river cruise through southern France provided more inspiration. The final impetus was seeing a miniature French country kitchen designed by Bluette Meloney."
