    My best show in 2012… I wouldn’t miss being a dealer there! It’s not only affordable but we are surrounded by very talented miniaturists.

    I’ve been a dealer at this miniature show for twenty four years straight. Would not miss it for anything in the world! The people are great and the show promotion is first rate! Gilbert Mena

  3. Luci Hanson says:

    Have the contract in hand and plan to return in 2017

  4. I’ll be sending my contract closer to the new year as well. Much easier if my 2017 business checks are processed in the same year as the show I definitely plan to be there.
