Firstly I would like to wish everyone a belated Happy New Year!
I have been busy these last couple of weeks trying to get some models ready to do a spares batch hopefully around the beginning of February. As many of you may know we haven't actually had a 'Spares Night' since March 2017 and one of my New Years resolutions is to try and get back to doing spares again, at the moment they are only really available at the shows but as not everyone can get to the shows, I thought it would be nice to give more people a chance to be able to buy some spares.
The order book is now open again but I would like to try and limit the amount of orders I take on at any one time, I'm not sure at the moment exactly what that number will be but I would really like to be able to make a mix of both spares and orders again.
Once the spares are ready, there will be announcement with a date and time on the forum as this will be the only place that they will be offered for sale, so please keep a look out for that on this board.

I'm hoping to get the master mould for heavy horse made shortly, as the sculpture seems to have hardened up again with the colder weather and can now be handled without being damaged and then once I've cast a model I can get the working moulds made, I'm really hoping to have got it all sorted over the next few months.

Ahh, if the heavy horse is coming along all right then I'll probably hold off on ordering a Martha portrait (second attempt) until that's done (the heavy horse would definitely be better than my second choice of mould for her). I think I might go with Dartmoor pony for my birthday order.
Hello, I'm new to this site, to Julips and to forums in general. I have no idea how any of this works! I signed up as a way of purchasing a Julip Original through the Spares sales, which seem to be held every so often. From what I gather the last one was in February, so I've definitely missed it!! Wondering if anyone knows when the next one will be? Or, maybe, might there still be some as yet unsold from that sales night? Hope this goes somewhere where someone can help! Thanks lots. Crystalg.
Hi welcome to the mad world of Julip fans. Two words of warning 1. Julips are very addictive, just like chocolate biscuits - one is never enough. 2. Spares night is bedlam as you have to type "buy" in reply to the pictures Laura posts and first one to post the comment wins. I suggest you practice your speed typing and if you haven't got a fast internet connection visit a friend who has and go online at their house lol! Not sure when the next online spares night will be as there are live shows coming up but Laura always gives us plenty of notice of the date and time.
