Show dealers get to expand their customer base and sell more minis!
Anyone can afford this:
- Mini fans can pay the Preview price per show for scheduled access to Virtual Salesrooms during the Show weekend, or an annual subscription for special discounts.
- Show producers split the Preview price ticket revenue with Smallisimo, and we do all the rest!
- There is no charge for Show Dealers to provide 5-10 items for sale in the Virtual Salesroom, and they pay a fee of 10% when their item sells.

The beauty of our small world is the depth and breadth of the endless possibilities to be expressed in scale. Smallisimo Mini Masters is an effort to bring exclusive products and tutorials from the most innovative, skilled miniaturists around the world. The artisan provides the design and manufacturing, and Smallisimo handles the branding and marketing. The end result is a series of products that are sold exclusively on Smallisimo.com. The revenue is shared, and a portion of the Smallisimo proceeds goes to fund our smallGESTURES Youth Initiative to inspire young people and get them involved in dollhouse miniatures.
