Miniatures in the Midwest

As some of you may know, I live in Indiana.  There's not a whole lot here as far as miniatures go although  my town was voted the best place in America to live by Money Magazine so it does have a lot of other things to offer.  The closest miniature store is about an hour and a half away.  We do have The Museum of Dollhouse Miniatures which sponsors an annual miniature show.  Last weekend was their annual show and sale which I was able to get to.  It was fun and I got to meet a few wonderful people.  There were very few modern miniatures, but this is what I did find there.

 I've been looking for months for a white Barcelona chair, but nobody seems to have any.  The only place I have seen them is at Minismodernas.  Unfortunately, the shipping to the U.S. makes them a little too expensive for me.  So, I thought I'd buy a couple of black ones and paint them white.  Then I realized that the strapping under the cushions are black too and that part would be a real pain in the butt to paint.  That's ok because I like them in black as well and I couldn't beat the price: 2 for $20.  If anyone knows where I can get some white ones, please let me know.

 I like how whis vase has a MCM feel with the swirled colors.

A few toiletries and a pair of orange dice.

My favorite is this boomerang shaped desk from The Happy Bungalow. The hanging plant is nice too.

I also entered the Atomic Bungalow in the judging contest which was fun.  I won first place in the Houses category!

However, there were only three houses that were entered.

There were several categories and first and second prizes, so there were a lot of winners.  It was fun though. 

Have a great day!

BTW, The Atomic Bungalow is now for sale if anyone is interested.
