We All Had a Great Time on May 17th! Thank you, Robin!!
Robin Gee hosted the second Re-Ment Fan Club meeting on Saturday, May 17th, 2008, from 1pm to 4pm in Los Angeles. Everyone had a wonderful time! We arrived to discover personalized badges and a goodie bag full of special treats made by Robin for each of us to enjoy.
We started the meeting with a wonderful presentation by Joey Gomez on Blythe, the adorable doll with huge eyes. The Blythe Crew was out in force and brought a display of very rare and beautiful Blythes to share with all of us.
The full Re-Ment US team joined us and gave us a sneak peek at upcoming new sets, complete with samples we could see and touch. The little animals were so cute and we can hardly wait for all of the new pastries. Thanks to Ayano, Angie, and Ila for joining us and for bringing great prizes, too! They brought three of the ulta rare Happy Birthday set - two for competition prizes and one for a raffle that everyone was entered in.
Robin gave a wonderful presentation on the elusive Secret Sets and we had a display of 30 secret sets from my collection. As a big surprise, Robin held a raffle and gave away several secret sets, including the highly coveted orange candy chest.
Competition was a blast with great creativity and lots of prizes for those who entered. Congratulations to Nancy and Julie, who tied for first place in the room box competition, and to Robin, who won the refrigerator competition! Everyone who participated in the competition also received a Re-Ment set donated by Carol Gillott of Paris Breakfasts. Be sure to visit her blog to see the beautiful paintings she makes of our favorite miniatures!
We started and ended the day with a Re-Ment bazaar - lots of things for sale and trade! Several people were able to thin out their duplicates and I set up a big sales table with all the latest Re-Ment for sale.
Special thanks to Chris Verdon, owner of Café Café, who graciously donated his space for our meeting and who served up delicious sandwiches, cookies, and yummy smoothies.
Finally, we finished with very special cakes made by Re-Ment Fan Ellen Ansok, in honor of Linda Orlando's birthday that day. Ellen re-created the strawberry whipped cream cake from Special Cakes for Me and the ballerina cake from Fairy Tale Sweets, both in human size! They were absolutely perfect and tasted great!
Thanks to everyone who attended, shopped, competed, played, and shared their knowledge and their treasures with us. And, a huge thanks to Robin for putting everything together and showing us all a wonderful time!
Here are my pictures from the day, along with several taken by Susie Wilber (thanks, Susie!), to share the fun we had! You can enlarge any of the pictures by clicking on them.
Our First Fan Club Meeting
Many thanks to Robin Gee for organizing the first "I Love Re-Ment" Fan Club Meeting on November 4th, 2007, at Café Café in Los Angeles. Thanks, too, to everyone who attended and who shopped in our "salesroom." I had so much fun meeting new people and getting reacquainted with old friends!
