Vintage Custom Model Equine Center

Introducing the Model Animal Hobby History Archive, or MAHHA!


Originating from Julie Froelich and Cristine Holt's generous donations of hobby publications, newsletters, show results, related books and magazines, makers' catalogs, model sire and dam listings, and more, this growing library of ephemera will be housed in the reading room of the VCMEC Hobby House & Museum.


We're happy to accept and preserve any hobby-related papers or publications you may no longer want. Thanks to all who have contributed so far--we appreciate it!


Our goal is to create not only a library of our hobby's history for visitors to enjoy, but also an index of publications to assist in hobby research and in identifying vintage customs.
