Some Thoughts After the Fall Show

It's done.

After all the preparing and fretting and wondering, the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys annual Fall Show is finished for 2015.

It was amazing. It was a great show. Great people, great events, just all around great!

The Midnight in the Dollhouse products we brought, like our books...

and our puppets were a huge hit!

People were very interested in our trees, though we didn't sell any.

We put our stuff out on the Norm's Dollhouse table, which is the shop through which sell our stuff.

And this leads to some of my contemplation.

It was suggested to me, by a member of the Norm's staff, that maybe I should think about doing the "Little Show" in February with my own table, not Norm's.

I've always put my stuff with the Norm's stuff before. I thought it worked out pretty well for everyone involved.

I think my crafty stuff and the items made by the Nielsen family all go together pretty well.

But maybe it's time to branch out on my own a little. I'm thinking that I could get my own table for the February "Little Show", premier a bunch of Midnight in the Dollhouse stuff, and then have it all for sale through Norm's.

So maybe still mutually beneficial, but stretching out my skills a little bit.

It's a lot to think about, but I am drawn to it.

Maybe it's time for a little more Midnight in the Dollhouse in the world. :)

Wish me luck. February isn't so far away, really. Any opinions or advice? I would love to hear it!

  1. Yes!!! Get your own table and fill it with your wonderful eye plants, cup cakes, cookies, books, etc! You're very talented!

    1. Thanks, Lori. I think I just might. It's a little scary, but I really find myself drawn to the idea. I guess I won't know what could've happened if I didn't try, right? :) Thank you for your encouragement. You rock.

    2. And, if I actually get started NOW, maybe it won't be so stressful as this show was. :)

      Also... I do secretly find myself wondering if I could do my own table at the Fall Show next year. Hmm... well, we'll see what the pixies think.

  2. Hello Wendy,
    I'm glad you enjoyed the show. Don't be afraid, go for it and just go with whatever happens. You have the talent and remember, nothing ventured, nothing gained!
    Big hug,

  3. I say go for it. I believe you may be surprised by what happens.

  4. Go for it, and bring you own personal brand to the table, which you did. The best thing is, you already have a distributor, Norm's dollhouses, which most small miniaturists don't - just themselves. Your display was lovely and unique and fresh. Start small and don't overwhelm yourself. Try it and you will be surprised!
