  1. "Mini Acres" Sale Houses At Portland OR Miniature Dollhouse Show

    Well, those of us with teeny tiny brains that can't remember when we said NO MORE DOLLHOUSES and have enabling friends are not so frugal. Even when we don't have money! The thing is, I have money now, but it's got to stay in my savings account except in cases of emergency. What I'm afraid of is if I went down to Portland, I'd think that buying all three of those houses would constitute an emergency.

    Hmmm...I think it's the real deal and someone just added an upper porch and recut one of the upper windows for a door. Sometimes people just don't know what they've got. Look at that Thornhill. The name isn't even on it and if it were mine, I'd not only put the name on it but remind people it's discontinued. That's a real buy for that house and it's soooooo tempting. *wipes drool off the monitor yet once again* I imagine there's going to be a rush as soon as the doors open and the Lawbre, the Thornhill, and the Clell Boyce house (if it is a Clell Boyce house) are going to be the first ones to go. Like less than 5 minutes after the doors open first to go. It's too bad they aren't auctioning off the houses. The other houses aren't that bad either, although I'd never pay $900 for a Victoria's Farmhouse. The 3 Story City Property one is a Majestic Mansions Brookhaven Manor house that retails for $262 on the web site, so considering tax, shipping, and that the owner finished the outside of the house, a $38 price increase isn't unreasonble. I believe the Tudor? house is a Celerity house and they're pretty good quality houses. Someone check for me - I think the 3 Story Farmhouse is a Woodline house called Grandma's House. I may be wrong on that (I really hate not having my catalogs!). The House that Jack Built Colonial is a good price, given how expensive those houses are. The Two Story Saltbox with Attic might be an old Walmer house. Again, I'd have to have my catalogs to verify that. I was looking at that Vermont Farmhouse kit that's being advertized without a pic because I thought it might be the full sized Vermont Farmhouse and not the Vermont Farmhouse Jr. The large house is 32" wide, so I don't know what to think about that one. If it is the full size Vermont Farmhouse, that's an awesome price because I think it retails (if you can still get it) for almost $500 on the RGT site. And somehow I keep thinking that sweet shop and the Molly McGrath shop are Celerity models, too, although I'm not sure. I love that garage. You can barely see it, but take a quick peek at how it's finished on the inside. By the way, the best way to see some of those houses is to save them as an image to your desktop. When you open the image, most of the pictures enlarge nicely.

    I know you meant to say Newbury, but you're right, those stairs are so neat.

    Thank you, Samantha! This is also Hofco Southern Dynasty kit then. I thought it looked familiar but I just couldn't come up with the name.
  5. MY FAIRFIELD BUILD

    Yes. About 12 years or so ago I went to the miniature show in Seattle when it was over by the Space Needle and one of the houses there was a Lily with the roof raised. It was only raised about 3 or 4 inches, but it made a world of difference in the attic. I don't think the space could have been used for bedrooms or anything, but it surely didn't take away from the look of the house and actually made it look a lot better. I think the way the ceiling was raised was simply that after the original curve of the walls, the wall height was just raised. And I believe the dormers were still on the roof as well. Besides the fact that the decorating job was just awesome, I thought the house looked so nice I considered getting a Lily myself and doing the same thing. I wonder if the show keep records of the houses that were displayed. You might contact them and see if they would contact the owner of that house and maybe that person could send you some pictures.

    Ye gods! Isn't that a Lawbre house for only $75? What time does that place open? Even I might go there and stand in line overnight. I don't recognize the Clell Boyce house, but I like it.
  7. Well fiddle faddle

    *ponders 12' x 10' room*  If Lawanda can fit that many houses into her place, surely I should be able to fit 25 houses into this room. Hmm....... I think it's time we start petitioning Greenleaf to put out an adobe kit with a flat roof that is study enough to be used as a chair. Then other houses under glass can be used as end tables........and oh! The Garfield can go under glass and be the dining room table. I think I have this figured out!

    Is that house levitating or something? Because the back base pieces are missing. I really do loke that house, but I don't love it $800 worth!

    I'm not sure, but that may be a Hofco house. But it's definitely not from the 50s. More like late 70s or 80s.

    I think the lamp is part of the house. I had to look at it a long time, though, to figure that out.

    Thank you, Dmitriy, I have your site bookmarked! For those who don't read Russian, he said "You can buy this tea set at my site." Or close enough - my own Russian isn't that advanced. LOL  
  12. House ID

    I'm not sure what the first one is - my catalogs are still in the basement and will probably be there for another couple of weeks. Grrr.... But the second one is the Apple Blossom.

      Here's a contest house or one that was a contest house, for a pretty good price. https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/for/d/1-12-scale-cabin-dollhouse/6301961436.html And someone is selling this at an estate sale. I didn't think anyone would go and get it, so I'm just including the pic, but if you're interested, I'll look for the link again. It's kind of cool.   Here's a Tiffany from Walmer in Spokane - a little pricy: https://spokane.craigslist.org/for/d/victorian-dollhouse/6302993921.html   And this one is homemade, but I sort of like it: https://spokane.craigslist.org/tag/d/doll-house/6298823478.html   A Duracraft Victorian: https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/art/d/victorian-doll-house-kit-75/6307538822.html   A put together Glencroft for a good price: https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/clt/d/english-tudor-doll-house/6306334077.html

    Well, now the Craig's List posting has expired, but here is the house I was talking about: It looks like the Pembrook from Victorian Times Miniatures with an addition on the left side (facing the house), a porch added around the bay window and an added dormer. I would have to see the other one to compare it, which of course, I can't do now. Darn it.

    Remember that big gray house under glass that everyone loved awhile back? I'm pretty sure this is the house: https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/clt/d/big-beautiful-doll-house/6298110816.html
