Granville Kit

7 posts in this topic

I have a unconstructed Granville dollhouse kit (510).  Mine does not have the shingles included. 

I bought it new in a sealed box in 1991, but still haven't gotten around to making it, so I'd like to sell it to someone who would love to do so.  I did open one side of the box to peek inside some time ago but I haven't popped out the pieces from the sheets inside.

I'll post it soon to craigslist in my local area (New Orleans area), but I thought I would post it here as well to see if anyone wants to make this home their home! ;-)

Send me a private message and offer if you are interested.  Local is easier, but I'll consider shipping if you wish to pay for postage and insurance.  I believe this is ok to post, but if not, please forgive and advise!

Thanks!

You posted well within the trading post guidelines.  I have used construction paper and sandpaper for shingles, and Greenleaf sells wood shingles.  Is there any reason you don't want to build this kit for yourself to enjoy?

Thanks for the feedback!

I mentioned the shingles because an online search shows some kits that list the roof shingles included, and others do not.  I've used Greenleaf wood shingles for other projects.

I don't currently have the room to build and keep the house, and between some life size scale house renovations (ha!) and too many other art/craft pursuits (resin, painting), I need to pare down.

I am fortunate to have a granville, but I think if no one is interested here you might have better luck and get more listing it on eBay and having the buyer calculate postage and shipping....it's an often sought after build.

Thanks for the advice.

I saw a few old ebay posts, but the price seemed quite ridiculous, and I'm not sure what they actually sold for.  I'll do some more research on an appropriate price (and I'm open to any suggestions from anyone here!)

Thanks again!

there are some granvilles that sold for upwards of $500 and $600 dollars....some for $300.....and anywhere in between.  The beautiful part is since Christmas is coming someone may ask for that and viola, you've got it listed!

Thanks!  Maybe I'll dip my toe in the ebay waters!

    • Large Collection for Sale
      By anniefarley
      Hello Miniature Lovers!
      Does anyone want to take a road trip?  We are cleaning out Grandma's collection and have quite a list of dollhouse kits, unfinished houses, supplies and furniture to sale.  We would LOVE to sell the whole lot as a pickup.  Wouldn't know the first thing about shipping this stuff or know nothing of ebay.  We are located in Hutchinson, KS, so we are almost smack dab in the middle of the country.
      We do believe all kits are complete.  Some boxes are pretty worn.  A couple of the incomplete builds are as is (the two we couldn't identify).  List and pics:
      Kits:  Bellingham Farm House, Alexandra, Newberg, Granville, Duracraft Farmhouse
      Incomplete builds:  Mint Julip, Victorian Cottage Jr that needs a little work, two unknown, San Fran bash and a cute little greenleaf
      We know a ballpark figure we'd like, so please....make an offer!  Oh, and don't worry....Grandma is fine....just downsizing and off to the next hobby!  Please see below link for photos.......

    • Porch view

      Here is my attempt to copy the Rosemont.  I had to make all the trims on top portion of the porch since I redesigned the outside of the Granville to look like the Rosemont.  I wanted to porch posts to be evenly spaced across the front and side of the house instead of how the Granville is actually designed.  I am having the guy at Laser Dollhouse Design make the curved railing for the part of porch that is the rounded.

      Qubanqtee and I both went to see the Rosemont while we were in Dallas at the miniature show.  She went during the week and was able to take some good pics of the Rosemont (aka Granville).  I went on Saturday and the homeowners were home, so I wasn't able to take any pictures.  So  glad she was able to get some pics of the real house.
