We had a brilliant show and as usual the DAME stand got a lot of attention! Unfortunately none of us thought to take any pictures!!! So the items pictured are Jenny and Mike's Castle Kelms stand, new range of porcelain dolls from Roz and Aidy of Lilyelf Miniatures and the Mad Hatter and Alice by Lesley Hughes of Ooakdiddydolls ;o)
It was great to see so many dames with stands of their own as well as the group stand and a fab weekend was had by all. It was a very successful show and now all DAMES are in panic mode to get ready for pudsey which is in around two weeks time!

We had our usual spot next to Helena of Solway Miniatures and she was next to another D-A-M-E member Lois of Mollies Exclusive Designs, so we had lots of fun and sales were good too!
