This is the latest column by Joanne Martin, the President of the Miniature Museum of Greater St. Louis.

Garage Sale

  We made almost $1,750 at the March Garage Sale.  There was a nice turnout of costumers and we sold lots of things for the museum.  There was a quite a bit of great stuff that the dealers had who were at the Fireman’s Hall.  There are still a few dollhouses left, so if anyone is in the market for dollhouses that need some TLC, please come an look at them.  You may find one that you cannot live without.  Thanks to everyone who came to sell and those who came to buy.

Cinco De Mayo Day

  Our roundtable day went exceeding well and everyone finished their projects and went away well-fed and happy.  We had some festive decorations and wonderful tacos, taco dip, salsa and chips, delicious cupcakes, Mexican wedding cookies, and virgin margaritas.  There were door prizes and a silent auction. 


  I want to thank all of our volunteers who do such a great job for us at the museum.  I am asking if anyone has a day or two a month to give to the museum as a volunteer.  We always need volunteers.  It is an easy job and you will be trained on-the-spot by  a board member.  You can bring a project to work on if it isn’t a busy day at the museum.  Remember that volunteers receive thank-you gifts for helping us out.  

  We will send a free admission to the October miniature show that Teresa Zweiner is sponsoring, and a gift certificate to the museum gift shop. 
These thank-you gifts will be given out at the August membership meeting.

New Exhibits

  Dave, Joe & O.T. have been working on the roomboxes that we received from the estate of Dale Watson.  They have electrified a large roombox that houses a living room, a dining room and a kitchen.  We have to put the Bespaq furniture back in, however one of our helpers (and the person who does the newsletter), Fay Zerbolio, fell and broke her left wrist and left hip, so she will be out for a bit while she heals.  They are also working on lighting a donated dollhouse that will soon be on exhibit.  Their jobs never end.  Thanks, guys, for all the help you give to the museum.  We couldn’t do it without you.
