Small Dollhouse Haul by Bon-AppetEats Small Dollhouse Haul by Bon-AppetEats
Today I visited my first Hobby Lobby, as well as Florida's largest dollhouse/miniature store and museum. It was a blast - I loved both places so, so much and am sad that I live no where near them. I plan on visiting both each time I come back, though. c:

These two pictures include my purchases from both places.

Top picture (Hobby Lobby): 1:12 Tea Set, Picnic Table, Cafe Table and Chairs, two wooden buckets, pots and pans, coke cans, a whisk with a bowl and cookbook, miniature books, and tiny Christmas lights.

Bottom picture (Ron's Miniature Shop, Inc): Table and Chair set, Pots and Pan set, Dinnerware set, 4 paper bags, 4 paper grocery bags, 4 mini bottles, 3 square glass containers, 1:12 straws and straw holder, wine bottles, wooden container, 2 small wooden bowls, waffle maker, and a cake box.

I'll try and get the pictures I took of Ron's up when I can. That place was just mind blowing; it was literally wall to wall COVERED in dollhouse miniatures. If you could think of it, it was there in miniature. The oddest miniatures I found were of coffins. I would totally live in that place if I could. c: If you're up in Orlando, I urge you to visit this place.

Pictures of Ron's Miniature Shop, Inc now up here:

I don't know about a Hobby Lobby, but I doubt the other shop does; it's owned locally. :)

Omg I would never ever ever want to go to such a place :D I think I would be so tempted to spend tonloads of money, after squeing/squiing (is that a verb? I basically mean this: :la: but then in sound xD) untill I have no voice left over. And if I still was 10, I wouldn't even be tempted I just WOULD spend a tonload of money (if I ever had that back then) :D

Must have been absolute heaven to you too then ^^

That's the only reason I don't live near here. If I did, I'd be broke! XD

Oh, I did my fair share of squeeing as I ran back and forth around the store. I think the owners must have thought I was nuts.
VictorianRedRose Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Haha I can SO imagine you'd be totally broke :D
Lol and I can imagine the overdose of crazy squeeing too ^^ Must have been absolute cute-heaven to see all those beautiful miniature houses. Too bad there aren't too many people on dA that make/decoratie them :( mostly only miniature/kawaii food :( Which is quite understandable because the average dollhouse probably takes up a lot of room and it costs a small fortune to decorate it =/ and to be honest, even if it's super pretty: it's useless :p But still a shame though, I'd love to see some dollhouse decorators on dA ^^

I would love to have a full dollhouse (actually, I had a handmade one when I was young but we tossed it - I regret it so much now :/), but I don't have the money at the moment to get a nice one. Plus space is limited already with all my miniatures cluttering up my apartment. XD I'm actually trying to figure out how to make my roombox multi purpose so I can convert it from a pastry shop to, say, a kitchen; that way I can have multiple rooms with just one large box! :D

Food is my favorite to make. I love to decorate and get very meticulous with details, and pastry/dessert is the perfect thing for that. :)

Ahh no, you tossed it? What a shame! Not so weird though, it's something you don't think you'll need anymore at the age of 14/whatever when you stop playing with toys :p You're not instantly thinking 'oh wait, maybe I'll get interested in miniatures later. I'll just keep it, better be safe than sorry!' so totally understandable :D

Nice idea btw of making your roombox into multiple rooms, hope it works out :D Because indeed, I can imagine you don't have a lot of room available with such a hobby xD

Ahh that's true, desserts and pastries are SO nice! :D I've never stopped loving it, even when I was little each of my toys had the most epic food/dessert/table ware collection imaginable because I loved it so much :D So I can imagine it's a super nice hobby to make all of that stuff yourself ^^ Even though it looks quite hard :p

Do you know Sylvanian btw [link] ? Those truly were (and are :la:) the most beautiful toys ever to be made. So much detail, and the food and tableware was always SO damn cute :|

We moved across the country and I guess we just didn't have the room for it. :( I guess now I'll just have to build and decorate my own. ;)

I've never heard of those before, but they are absolutely adorable. :3
VictorianRedRose Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
ohh that's a shame :( Maybe later if you live on your own and can affort an appartment/house big enough you can have your own studio :D miniature heaven ^^

Yes they're adorable, aren't they :D They're all set in victorian London so nothing modern (which I looove xD), and it has so much attention to detail in clothing and well, everything. And not even super expensive, just a little bit more than the average Playmobil or something like that (in my time anyway, not too sure about now :p) but totally worth it's price ^^ I'd still be tempted to buy it if I'd see it in a shop now :o
