Mobile Miniature Club

January 5, 2010–February 28, 2010 (Third Floor Display Cases)

Members of the Mobile Miniature Club displayed many of their creations at the University of South Alabama Library during January and February, 2010. Miniature dollhouses, roomboxes, and furniture - new and vintage, will be featured. A display of miniature building components including real clay bricks, doors, windows, hardware and wallpaper will also be shown.

See examples of everyday objects transformed into miniature furnishings. Different scales of miniatures will be featured including 1 inch scale (1 inch equals 1 foot); half-scale (½ inch equals 1 foot) and quarter scale (1/4 inch equals 1 foot). Items will also be displayed in a very small scale wherein 1/144th of an inch equals a foot! Roombox subjects and styles will range from strict realism to whimsical fantasy. What you may not be able to have in real life, you can create in miniature. Come see why our motto is “It’s never too late to have a happy childhood!”
