Happiness is... the Portland Miniature Show!
Never Been to a Miniature Show?
Not been to a miniature show in a while, or maybe never? Dollhouses, room boxes, vignettes and their miniature contents are completely different from those in the 1950s, 60s or 70s. Today, they are works of art you shouldn't miss! Absolutely EVERYTHING that exists in full-scale, real life is now available in smaller scales such as 1" = 1 foot or ½" = 1 foot or 1/4" = 1 foot. Whether it is a hand-crafted or commercially produced accessory for a dollhouse, you’ll find it at this show. Come talk to the friendly dealers, sign up for a workshop, or attend a how-to demonstration.

Meet Pat Bennett, Show Promoter
Pat's introduction to dollhouse miniatures was at a garage sale 20 years ago when she took a "free" dealer catalog from a box at the end of the driveway. The rest is history. In 2006, she purchased the Portland Miniature Show and in December 2012 she purchased the Seattle Miniature Show. Pat's motto is "Happiness is... Miniatures."
