Winter Auction: The Yvonne Farley Collection
I'm absolutely THRILLED that my Winter 2023 auction is underway: The Yvonne Farley Miniatures Collection! This sale is happening over the next few weeks on the D. Thomas Miniatures eB ay site here.
Yvonne Farley was an extensive collector throughout the 90's and early 2000's and very active in the miniatures community before her passing in 2015. She attended miniature shows throughout the United States, took classes in miniature making and built a large collection of tiny treasures in a broad range of categories, themes and scales. She had strong interest in the arts which fueled her passion for the tiny, filled her home with miniatures and brought her tremendous joy.
This sale consists of a very large and broad collection of artisan and commercial miniatures with over 350 lots, covering over 20 categories including Fine Furniture, Books, Food, Flowers, Porcelain, Sterling Silver, Pottery, Toys, Art Dolls, Glassware, Lighting, Needlework, Textiles and more.

Additionally there are multiple themed lots for added fun including Ladies' Boudoir, Sewing Room, Gentleman Study, Circus, Vintage Kitchen, Southwest Style, Asian Inspirations, Boys' & Girls' Rooms, Camping and Cow (yes, COW!).
There are also smaller scales featured in this sale (1/144!), roomboxes and a few assorted surprises including 100 piece lots for the miniatures enthusiast who goes for mini-multiples!

There will be a total of 4 auctions starting at 5pm ET on Sunday Jan 22 with subsequent auctions on Thursday Jan 26, Sunday, Jan 29, and Thursday Feb 2nd. Each auction will last 7 days.
