The show was held at Drackett Designs and Antiques in Cincinnati, Ohio on December 9 - 18. The opening party and show were well attended. Several boxes sold and 10% of all sales proceeds were donated by Miniature Rooms Company to The Taft Museum of Art in Cincinnati.

The party and show were a huge success  with over 120 guests attending the opening party. The guests included serious collectors, the young and the curious. A good time was had by all. Several boxes sold in addition to a number of beautiful antiques. Miniature Rooms Company and Drackett Designs & Antiques donated 10% of all sales proceeds during the ten day show to the Taft Museum of Art.

The room was so crowded that at times the guests had  line up in order to view many of the room boxes on display.

A special thanks to Drackett Designs, The Taft Museum and to all the guests who attended the opening party and those who viewed the show during its ten day run.
