Last Weekend and This

Well what a fantastic Dolls House Fair Pudsey was. We met loads of new faces and really enjoyed the busy day. It is one of our favourite Fairs and didn’t disappoint. Leeds Dolls House Fair.

We had our usual double stand incorporating Puffin Design with our laser cut Dolls House Miniatures and Kits, and Crab Pot Models with our pre-loved houses and furniture. pudsey2017n

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 .

Clothes Racks and Play tables

There are so many ideas out there to make for Dolls Houses, there just aren’t enough hours in the day. We really have been getting more items on our Ebid Store and drawing new designs and making things ready for the first show of the season. Newark Show-ground on the 16th April. Sounds a long way off but it will fly I know. Who is going? Please let us know on our Facebook page so we can say hello. 

New items this week are the clothes racks and play tables.

So I hope you catch up with us on Facebook or by e-mail.

Busy last few weeks

As well as customer orders over the last few weeks we have been working on new items. Shops seem to be popular at the moment so the first 2 things off the production line are narrow shelf unit which can be personalised and Bread /Grocery Shelves in 2 sizes.

We have also added some modern drawers and been playing with finishes. In other words I (Caroline) have been playing.

Our New Look

Thank you for looking at our new blog!  The host where our website used to reside has closed down which made us consider alternatives.  We already used eBid and Etsy and with the options and presentation these sites provide, we decided to utilise these and make them our main channels.  You can still use our original website address which will bring you here where you can click through to the site you want.

Caroline has been designing some new Puffin Design items for 2017 and these will be showcased on Etsy and Facebook as they become available.  We also look forward to displaying them at shows and fairs throughout the year.

We hope our first fair this year will be the Dolly’s Daydreams fair at Newark Showground on Easter Sunday 16th April, followed by Pudsey on the following Saturday 22nd April.  Although not a doll’s house fair we will be at the Driffield Country Fair on Saturday and Sunday 29th and  30th April – a busy start to the year!

Following on we will be at Locomotion for the Cleveland Miniaturist Fair on Sunday 9th July.  We will also have plenty of pre-loved items at this venue.

First blog post

We have changed the way we promote our products.  This decision was a result of the existing host of our website closing thus prompting us to consider alternatives.  From now on we will be promoting our Puffin Design products on Etsy: Link to Puffin Design

and our new/pre-loved items from Crab Pot Models on eBid: Link to Crab Pot Models

We will also start to regularly post updates, dates of shows and other items of interest on this blog which we hope you will interesting and informative.

Caroline & Richard
