Who We Are
What We Do
CIMTA is Cottage Industries Miniaturists Trade Association and was established in 1979
by Carol Wenk and associates.
We, as current members of this association, strive to follow the mission
statement of the founders as listed in the By-laws.
COTTAGE INDUSTRY MINIATURISTS TRADE ASSOCIATION, INC.
FOUNDER CAROL WENK—CLEVELAND, OHIO 1979
Purpose: The purposes of the Corporation are: (i) to consider and present programs which deal with the unique problems
that face the Miniatures Industry; (ii) to foster cooperation and exchange of ideas and opinions on issues confronted
by the handcrafter of miniatures and upon questions affecting the commercial and industrial interests of the
Miniatures Industry and the United State of America, and (iii) to promote business interests within the Miniatures Industry.
We have come together with the common goal of sharing our love for dollhouse miniatures with the public and fostering the the continuation of the hobby in today's world with all of its distractions. We hope to create a channel of communication between the artisans, makers and manufacturers of dollhouse miniatures and the stores, shops and dealers who sell to the public. In an effort to let the artisans do what they do best : "CREATE"; and let the shop owners do what they do best: "SELL"; we host a wholesale trade show held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada. This event facilitates the meeting of these two entities in a setting that fulfills the needs of both factions, as much as it creates an atmosphere of excitement and fun.
CIMTA is a NOT FOR PROFIT organisation and is run by a board of directors that are elected by the members. The board plans, prepares and implements the annual wholesale trade show, always keeping in mind what will enhance the experience for both buyers and sellers.
Are you an artisan who creates dollhouse miniatures who wants to efficiently sell your products
at wholesale prices to qualified shops?
Are you the owner of a brick and mortar store,
online shop or retail show dealer who wants to purchase dollhouse miniatures at wholesale prices?
Please consider joining us at our
