  • Rudolph's Christmas shop was constructed for her by her husband Des. Lily filled the shop to bursting point with tiny toys, decorations and figures, many of which she made herself.


  • Geraldine Jevons displayed her Spanish style Bistro with chef cooking tempting seafood dishes whilst customers enjoy their aperitifs.


  • Sue Popely, also known as the Luggage Lady, enjoys creating Harry Potter scenes in miniature, this time it was Hagrid's cottage and garden, correct in every detail.




  • Some years ago the YMA chose theatre scenes as its club challenge. Elizabeth Jackson decided to re-set her stage, this time with a scene from a Victorian melodrama.



  •  Cliff Hirst likes nothing better than doing miniature pub scenes, so he was showing the Halfway House Inn. He also brought along a little kitchenette that he copied from an article in Dolls House & Miniature Scene, and Spring Cottage. His main contribution along with the other three, was a wonderful copy of a real Ambleside building, Bridge House, clad in Lakeland slate and built over a stream.




The charity supported by the club was Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and they raised over £65 on the day.

The next York Dolls House and Miniatures Fair takes place on 27th November 2011. Pre-book your tickets for this and all our fairs to receive discounted prices and free entry into prize draws.
