“A Box Of Memories” – Bid Online Now For Breast Cancer Campaign!      by Celia Thomas


Celia Thomas of KT Miniatures, who is also organiser of the Thame Dolls House & Miniatures Fair, is proud to announce that the next charity auction in aid of Breast Cancer Campaign, is now officially open and you can even bid online this year too!

A room scene called simply “A Box Of Memories” has been created inside a tiny antique smoker’s cabinet, to depict a nostalgic and poignant scene of a lady of mature years (endearingly named Florrie) who is up in her old loft room, surrounded by many possessions of great sentimental value.  As she sits, she picks up an old family album and finds memories of days long gone come flooding back.

Several UK artisans have donated some exquisite miniature items that have been incorporated inside this scene, and many of these artisans will be exhibiting at the charity event next February 20th 2010 at Thame Leisure Centre in Oxfordshire.

With a reserve of just £99.00 on this room box, this is an ideal opportunity for some lucky person to take possession of a wonderful heirloom of the future and helping a worthy cause at the same time. This is a sealed bid auction and bidding is now open. Closing date of the auction will be 20th February 2010.
