SALE making way for new products

We launched a sale on our Facebook Page to clear some of the kits and made up display items from our regular range. The kits will still be available through Etsy but we are making room for new items for the shows and to reflect our continuing additions .

We are also offering a ‘made up’ service on our kits. These again will be available on the Etsy shop. Not everyone wants to spend time making kits up .

Commissions are increasing as well. If there is anything you want making to ‘fit’ or that you can not find on general listings, let us know and we can price it for you and work with you to design exactly what you want.

In the design stage at the moment are a smaller chiller cabinet , Larger menu boards, Art Deco Mirrors, Mackintosh Table to match the chairs and shop fitments. Is there anything you would like to see in the range. Please let me know.

So we have until Leeds Dolls House Fair at Pudsey to get the new displays sorted. With everything happening I bet that comes around very quickly.

 

Cleveland Dolls House Fair

We have been so busy prepping for this fair, sorry I haven’t been on here. We have packed loads into our van for Cleveland Dolls House Fair . We have DIY clearance, Glues Paints, Carpets, & Wallpaper. We have pre-loved and handmade furniture. We have books, Dolls, Babies and Hand knit. Also boxes and boxes of small bag bargains to fill any room or garden. Hope to see you there

We also completed a commission that I am so pleased with it will be available in kit form. Church Pews in 2 sizes complete with church mouse.

So setting off now. If we haven’t packed it , it isn’t going. No more room.

What’s New June

Yorks Dolls House Fair went well and it really was great to see everyone we deal with on-line. Some happy faces when they picked up thier commissions as well, which is always nice to see.

The new Mackintosh range has been going well DSCF2711 So what is new this month? Still working on some trade commissions which I can not reviel until they go ‘live’ at Miniatura. We have not had many new listings on Etsy as the one offs we have made have sold on our FB page .

We have a new Prep Counter in perspex. 1:12th . This can be modified to fit your kitchen scene. The red and black was made for a customer. However we have a good range of colours available.

So where to next. Cleveland Miniature Fair at Locomotion Shildon. This is free entry and you should have no trouble getting hubby there as it is in the National Railway Museum. Don’t know why I put ‘Hubby’ as I love looking at all the Steam Locos too. Don’t forget to click on the blue link.

We will be taking our usual Puffin Design kits , perspex furniture and fittings and one offs. Also with Crab Pot Models we will be taking lots of small items, pre-loved bargains, DIY ect.

Do come and say hello we will be just by the doors as last year.

A week of Commissions

Been super busy this week with commissions. Rain has stopped play on the car boot so I thought I would show a few pictures here.  First off the production line was the sun railings and stair case. Took some working out but even I was impressed when in place.  heike railings

I have been working on some mice furniture and a shabby chic range for a trade customer. Sneak peek in bare wood but the the work she does on them is fantastic so it is a pleasure to make the basics for her.

I have also painted up the Macintosh chairs ready to show at York Dolls House Fair . Don’t look at the seat’s upholstery isn’t my forte.

Well today I had better complete our Etsy orders for our most popular lines, the clear display cabinets and small bread rack.

Love miniatures and love the fact that other people seem to love our miniatures too.

May’s here already.

After our exhausting April we were looking forward to a bit of relax….Obviously you all had other ideas. Thankfully all pleasant ones. A book full of commissions to work on is keeping us out of mischief. We have also had a flurry of interest in the Dolls Houses we had for sale and I am now claiming our lounge and Sun Room back.

Also we have been working on new ideas, the first of which is Mackintosh style chairs. These will be released on Monday as kits @ £7.50 each. Here is a sneak preview

Looking at Tables next.

Our next fair is York Dolls House Fair at the racecourse on the 4th of June. More details nearer the time on here and our Facebook Pages.

Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine and let me know if there is anything you would like to see in Dolls House furniture kits.

So onto this coming weekend. We are at Driffield Showground for the East Yorkshire Country Fair. 

We will have Models, Toys, Dolls House furniture, Laser Cut Gifts inc VW gifts. What ever we have on board will be a bargain so please come and find us and say hello. Fingers crossed for the weather as we are camping out 2 nights, but whatever the weathher it is a fun event.

This event ends our super busy month and we are hoping for a couple of days break and then onto commision orders and work on new products.

Been distracted this week

Started the week really determined to get new products out there. Started making a habidashery bench, then some new things arrived for my own dolls house farm shop. Oh dear that was me playing. Fred the owner had to get them stacked straight away. Well they might go off He He

.100_5860  Haven’t been totally slack through we have listed a lot more products on our E-Bid site .The link is on the home page.

Also been dealing with obscure requests for the laser cutter. All need drawing and cutting. Nothing to do with dolls houses , but lables for the local model railway show and letters for family picture frames and personalised childs chairs.Check out thier facebook page.

We do a range of home decor and VW camper items as well as the dolls houses so maybe we need to expand those ideas as well. What do you think? Please get in touch and tell us on the e-mail address here or at our FB page .

Hope you are all having a happy spring .
