York to Staithes ...

Hello!  David and I are in the Royal George in Staithes at the end of a lovely day. Bless them, they have wireless internet here!  I've got a pint of cider and I'm just going to post a bit about the topic dearest to all our hearts, MINIS!

The Miniature Scene on Fossgate in York
I had an AMAZING time at The Miniature Scene in York on Saturday!  For everyone who told me what a wonderful shop it was, I just have to agree :)

We parked near the Black Swan in York, leaving Mum comfortably ensconced with a pint while David walked up to Monk Bar Model Shop and I walked across to Fossgate.

Friendly, knowledgeable people and a really marvellous array of minis, it was a dream come true! 

Here are some photos from the inside of the shop:

I love the little vignettes they have set up all over the shop!
Gorgeous Jacobean chairs and table

Dolls by The Giddy Kipper -- sorry for the glare, but they're all in a glass case!

Wonderful assortment of food and pewter.

I really love the bowed windows on the front of this house :)
Great witch!  Look at the size of that cauldron :)

Great Dr Frankenstein

I love houses from the humble ....

To the very grand! 
And this church is really lovely ...
As soon as I get a chance I'll take some photos of the pieces I bought here and in Chesterfield!


  1. I have bought so much from this man! Sadly only online! Huge thanks for the photo's of this fantastic shop, it makes me want to drive up for a long visit as he has such amazing mini's!

    I see you spied a Sid Cooke house (the double bow fronted one!)! I love the huge cauldron too! ;o))

    I hope the weather isn't too bad up North, it's been lovely down here for the last two days, but not as hot as it was. I hope the weather says great for the duration of your visit overhere. ;o))
