Rheda fair !

Yesterday I went to the Rheda fair (Germany) ; drove there and back, total 600 kms round drive. Is a bit of  a distance to cover for this ole'gel, esp when you do a fair in between ūüėú. And it was quite warm in Rheda, as well.

Still, I do love the fair and the venue . The fair contains some 200 vendors , both artisans and import/DIY sellers.

I hit Georgia Marfels' stand, of course :

                                  some grisly ( silicon) molds , to be used for bottles etc

                                               nasty books  and a pair of toadstools

                        accessory lighting and mushrooms ( probably for 1/24 scale cottage)

                                                               bookworm !

                             grinning mandrake , flesh eating plant, worm and a  bird skellie :

                                Loredana Tonetti had some witchy thing for me, too : a healthy school                                                       lunch for the pupils, a class lamp, and another mandrake

                          Of course, some 1/24 porcelain from Elisabeth Causeret ( no website, sorry) :


                                                         Some other 1/24 stuff:

                        And several 1/24 furniture kits by Laserville, bought from Melissa Sipma

 I also needed some 1/12th good quality wallpaper, so hopped off to Susan
 Bembridge's stand No pic here, since it is still on a roll, cat-safe, but you can view it here :  (the red one)


  1. Hello Elly,
    I want to tell you which one of your purchases is my favorite, but I cannot choose. they are all wonderful and incredibly well made. What fun and beautifully sculpted pieces.
    Big hug

    1. Hi Giac,
      Yes , I love my pieces. I really hightailed it to Georgia's stand as soon as I came through the door; I love her work. And I am sue my witches' class is going to like this stuff.
      I am working on a 1/24 house, so I am going to need some stuff for that , too. Will show a but, later on. Right now I am working on trying to decorating the outside.

  2. Wow! Great haul. You always get the most interesting miniatures, and they make me smile! :D

    1. Georgia is a favourite of mine, a wicked sense of humor. I have been a fan of hers since I first saw her at a Dutch fair. She is a great lady too.

  3. Thank you Pauline. I remembered her having them for sale, so got'em as fast as I could. My witches' class needs some more bottles, methinks.

  4. Hi Elly, A nice assortment of lovely minis- and I LOve those mushrooms!!!
    I have just completed a couple of Melissa's 1:12 chair kits and found them Really fun to do, so I have no doubt that you will be enjoying the results of all of your half scale kits as well! :D


    1. I am going to do my best, Elizabeth. Thank you for your nice comments!

  5. Looks like we have similar tastes in the unusual! I especially liked the book worm and the mandrakes! Such fun. Virtual visiting is the only way I can enjoy fun finds.

    1. Great you enjoy that, Jacqui, so kind if you to say. I gave Georgia's link to her etsy shop (if you click on her name in my post it will lead you there) , I usually share as many websites as I can.

  6. Prachtige aanwinsten, Elly!
