Dolls House No. 2

After doing as much as I could with dollshouse number one I thought about selling it and buying another one. I looked on ebay to get an idea of what I could get for it. It didn't take long to realise that it wouldn't be much, but also after having done so much work decorating and furnishing it I decided I wanted to keep it. Then I saw this one, it was a bargain, ready assembled and close to home to collect so I bought it. It's much bigger than my first one so it will keep me busy for a while!


  1. There was a dolls house shop just down the road from me for years where a man lovingly made and decorated the most beautiful dolls houses. Sadly it didn't pay but he's since moved on to restoring furniture along side the dolls house business. I bought my daughter a lovely dolls house many years ago from a charity shop, it's really lovely with gabled ends and a bay window. Completely decorated and furnished with electrics (which don't work but probably could be made to) for only £40, a real bargain! It has sustained a little damage over the years as she has played with it a lot, I must find time to restore it at some point, at the moment it's living in my bedroom to keep it safe.

    1. Hello Sarah, it is an absorbing hobby. The shop where I bought my first one from closed down. There are a couple of shops not far from here, I can usually get what I want, but I think they struggle. I do buy online sometimes but I like to see the items. I enjoy the creative element, lighting, decorating and furnishing. I can’t make up my mind what style to do my second one in though!
