PJPickard Posted October 7, 2014 Share Posted October 7, 2014 Maybe everyone knows about this, but it was sort of new to me: http://www.vitra.com/en-us/product/miniatures-collection# I saw these back when they were first introduced 20+ years ago. Around that time my heart sunk as I had the idea to make models of many of the chairs they produced. I thought they would be a great sale-able items. Now they have greatly expanded the line and have become collectables, a ebay search for "Vitra miniatures" will turn up many of them. Some of what I thought would be more obscure pieces are in their collections, effectively eliminating those from my list, in fact pretty much every piece I had thought about making is in their collection. The last few years I have been edging closer to begin making some stuff and pretty much everything in the Vitra collection is on my potential list of projects. I know one member , Miniatures makes some of these types of items. The prices from Vitra actually seem quite reasonable...I don't think I could make much per hour at their prices, maybe tooled up for a smallish production run, certainly not one or two. So, my question....would it be worth it to go ahead and make some of these anyway? Or is it time to move on to something else? Thanks for any thoughts you might have....
