About 7 weeks ago I bought ( at the Miniature on line show) two dolls from Jain Squires , Miss Havisham and a lady called Saoirse. The dolls looked both as if they would fit very well into my grisly Vic Newey pub ( the grisly story is told here ). Maybe Miss havisham would need a room of her own in the future , but in the meantime I thought she could do very well in the pub.
Alas, time went by and no dolls. So Jain, sweetly , promised to make me a replacement .She was already working on it, full steam ahaed.
And then teh miracle happened : the wandering dolls did turn up, after all !!! Both of us very happy.
I wanted to tell this story because I was very happy with how Jain handled the problem ; I owe her big time for the nice way she took it.
The new Miss Havisham will probaly travel to Kensington ( she looked great, btw )
This is Saoirse ( right hand, to the back. The innkeeper is doll by Jamie Carrington) :
And her is Miss Havisham, sitting by the fire, among remnanrts of forgotten guests...
