Back from Germany.

Had a wonderful show in Rheda, Germany this weekend. Plenty of shoppers through the doors and on Saturday my stand looked very depleted rather quickly. The show is so well organised and Barbara and her team are so helpful.Was lovely to catch up with old friends and new. Have a few dolls left from the show, this photo is of the stand at the start of the show. Will be listing any left on Etsy in the next week. New news: I have been asked many times about putting some kind of mark on my dolls for identification and at the show Julie and I found some tiny stamps to be able to do this. So......hopefully any new dolls from now on will have a tiny GK somewhere on them. Will post the first one to show.Jain x

1 zu 12 Die messe, Germany this weekend.

Had an absolutely fabulous show at Kensington last weekend. My little characters disappeared off to their new homes rather quickly, there was quite a few disappointed people going to think about it and coming back to find them gone. It has been a very busy week getting ready for the 1 zu 12 Die messe in Rheda, Germany this weekend. This is the second time I have been to the show. Its a good venue, well organised , with plenty to see, it is well worth a visit. Here are a couple of characters coming with me.If you are attending the show, please drop by and say hello.

Happy New Year!!

Well 2013 has been such a good year for The Giddy Kipper.I love attending fairs and seeing all my friends and customers. This year I have attended for the first time, two fairs abroad. The first at Rheda-Wiedenbruck Germany. Brilliantly organised and in such a pretty place.As usual I shared a table with my friend Julie Campbell and we enjoyed some time off to explore the town. The second show was Apeldoorn in The Netherlands which was held in October the weekend of the bad storms. We had a fabulous time there, but our journey home was a little hairy to say the least. With these two shows added to Miniatura and Kensington in the UK, I have been keep very busy. Next year promises to be just as exciting.I now have a fairly booked up commission book and will be just taking selected commissions in the future.
I wish everyone a healthy, happy, prosperous 2014.Jain xxx

Peep a boo!

This little mouse is one of my new toys. She's peeking round her handmade wicker box.These are the first pictures I've taken with my new camara and I'm hoping my photographs are now going to improve somewhat. Photography is not my strong point! Jain:)

The Duchess and the pig baby!

This is the last figure I have left from The Alice collection I took to Germany. She is fully posable and the baby pig is removable.I love her face, just a horrified disgusted look! I have a couple of little 3d portraits also left from the collection,all for sale in my Etsy shop. I have been working on commissions for the last week or so and also the new 24th scale animals. I will be introducing them here shortly and they will be available at Miniatura in September.I use Bea's (petite properties)kit's for displaying them. They go together like a dream and look just perfect! Watch this space. Jain xx
