Craftoptics is excited to be attending our very first Chicago International Trade Show for dollhouse miniatures! At the request of a number of our customers who work with miniatures, we decided to take the short drive from Madison to exhibit at the show and meet a whole new group of artists who work with fine details. Show hours are 12:00 noon to 10:00pm Thursday, April 26th, and 2:00pm to 7:00pm Friday, April 27th.
About Bishop Shows
Bishop’s world renowned Chicago International event remains the finest, largest and most prestigious miniatures gathering in the world. Additionally, the Bishops have worn many different hats in the miniatures field beginning as collectors, artist/craftsmen, and then as show dealers. From there they became miniature shop owners (Miniland, Inc., Margate, Florida), president of a 60 member National Association of Miniatures Enthusiasts, (N.A.M.E.) club, and finally international show promoters.
The Bishop goal has always been and shall always be to present the largest variety of the finest artists, craftsmen, artisan representatives and top quality general dealers from around the world.
