Auction | Buffet Dinner | Presentation

Join the Show Committee for a Gala Event at the close of sales Saturday, September 22.

The shopping is not over when the salesroom doors close on Saturday, for that is when the live auction begins. The auction committee has been soliciting special pieces from IGMA Artisan and Fellow members, as well as other unique items from donations from the collecting public.

A buffet dinner and special program will follow the live auction.

Reservations are required for the Buffet Dinner. Please use the registration form below.


Saturday and Sunday, September 22 & 23


Our new show location has a large exhibit room that we would love to fill with miniatures. We invite you to exhibit any dollhouses, room boxes, vignettes, domes, and individual pieces that you have created or purchased. Let’s see what you did with all your Guild School projects! We would like the exhibits in place until Sunday afternoon, but arrangements can be made for early removal. The Exhibit room will be locked when the show is closed and we do have display cases for items that are not covered. Monitors will be present during viewing hours. We will provide electricity, but you must supply your own extension cord, and additional special lighting or risers and covers if you require them.
