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.

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

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

I've heard that some Michael's have a dollhouse section, but the one by me does not. Hobby Lobby is the only craft store that I've seen carrying dollhouse items.

I saw the books and while I don't really need them, I HAD to have them. lol They're just so neat. c:

My husband (who doesn't even really care for miniatures and went with me to humor me) was zipping around the store going "Look at this! You need to come see this!" and pulling me along to all these neat things he kept finding. XD

I would have bought so many of those little books and made a miniature bookcase/library :nod: Or at least gotten someone who knows what they're doing to make it for me :XD:

That's awesome, have you rubbed it in his face yet?? Ooh! No! Don't do that. Wait until he complains about having to go miniature shopping with you or something and THEN bring it up ;)

If you google something along the lines of "local miniature stores", it should give you a list of stores near you. :) That's how I found these two places.

The closest one to me is a 2 hour drive as well! Dunno if I'd drive that far for it, but if there was a miniature shop like the other place I went to, I'd drive wherever to get to it. XD
