That song kept running through my head as I sailed 25 minutes down the freeway. In traffic it would take over an hour and a half.
I drove by ebay headquarters through the industrial park to the hotel. I waved, "Hi it's me..."
The Doubletree hotel was very nice. The quality of the miniatures was very high. There were 100 vendors or so. Not too many. Medium well attended on Sunday. (OK just published this before all my pics are up, so will be adding more throughout the day!)
So happy to meet Peter and Jeremy Tucker in person!
Love this Eames bench! The one in my hand (above) is made in natural wood color.
Saw Paris and Lisa Renfroe. There is always lots of buzz around their booth.The funny thing is many of their customers are the other vendors. I picked up my zig zag wall unit. Wow! Paris suggested mounting it on lucite so I can have more options with the background! I love it.
Doris found this great vendor of small hand sewn items and bought a beautiful quilt made of asian silks. It will make a gorgeous wall hanging.
One of my new favorites is XYZZX Creations. William and Joan Beiriger who show "ethnic and Nature arts in miniature"
He has an African sculpture by William Asango from Kenya that is similar in shape to a Giacometti that I am wild about. I had already shot my wad by the time I saw it. their website is:
Erik Goddard at: erikgoddard.com made beautiful lit roomboxes and oriental lanterns that glowed.
Also got to hang out with Mini Dork who is a blast! Must plan better for next year! (need a bigger budget) Thanks for the wine and Pita Chip treats, Minidork! CM
