Gypsies, Divination, and more...

Several years ago I made some of my first miniatures in the form of a Gypsy Caravan with a fortune telling theme. The structure was not really that sturdy and it finally started to give, so I decided to piece it apart and salvage the accessories. Everything was glued down in the Vardo, so some of the items are damaged on their backsides from ungluing them. But as you can see from the pictures, no damage can be seen unless you turn the items over.


Here is a divination set. There’s a realistic Ouija board, many arcane looking documents scattered about, some runes, tarot cards, a tarot card box (non-opening), various potion bottles, a mystical book, a crystal ball and stand, some scrolls, a map with a scrying pendulum, and a model palm reading hand.

I pulled these apart from the others because I don’t think they are at the same caliber. Here you get 3 books, a candle, a lantern, 2 bowls, a spoon, a scrying mirror, and a scroll. The scroll has a little more damage, he bottom right end is broken. It’s hard to see, but it’s there. It doesn’t completely separate, it just kind of hangs of you pick it up.

This is a copper stove with matching teapot and mug. The stove is a rough piece, but the teapot and mug are quite nice.

And finally, here are distressed posters that covered the Vardo’s exterior and some that were just strewn about the caravan.

You can find all of these listed on Etsy for nice low prices,
