Midwest Miniatures Museum Aquires

I am pleased to report that my roombox, ‘The Firemen’s Roost”, was purchased by The Midwest Miniatures Museum which is located on the grounds of the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan.  It is always validating when you sell a piece and particularly validating when you sell one to an experienced buyer/collector.   Further, selling a piece to a museum insures that it will be seen for many years to come by miniaturists from around the country and the world.  I have not been the Kalamazoo, but it certainly is now on my list.
