I belong to a miniatures group which I helped start 16 years ago, and every two or three years we have put on a show in a local shopping mall in order to proudly show off our latest creations . I have sold minis at shows in five cities in Canada, and also to shops in Canada and in other parts of the world. In my on line shop you will find carvings, household items , furniture, kitchen wares, sporting goods, themed items and accessories. I hope you will enjoy viewing PennyMiniatures. I am open to ideas of new items to try, and since I am new to this site also welcome suggestions on how I might improve. I am excited to be bringing my items to you and looking forward to hearing from many other craftspeople. Don't see what you are looking for ?? Let me know, I have many items not yet listed!
