Craig's List Dollhouse

I found this dollhouse on Craig's List. I know, I have one dollhouse that's not nearly finished and a store I haven't even started... but I'm very tempted to buy this one!

Does anyone know who might have made it?


Just look at what Robin Carey did with this house!


The Craig's List dollhouse includes all of the furniture!

I see a trundle bed...

Bunk beds and a cradle.

Living room with a fireplace and grandfather clock.

It needs work, but that has never stopped me before! If it is the Mint Julep, the parts and accessories are still available. They are asking $75. The unfinished kit sells for $157 - $169!

What do you think? Should I buy it?

It's a cute house. Some of the furniture looks like 1:16 scale Renwal and Plasco furniture from the 1940s and it seems to be in perfect scale. If you don't mind working in a slightly smaller scale I say to go for it. ;0)

Kathi, if you like it, go for it. If you don't, you will be kicking yourself for not getting it. Good Luck!!!

ahhhh, I think when you are a dollhouse hobbyist it really does not seem to matter how many unfinished houses and projects you have-you can make room for one more. I agree with Casey and De- if you love it I would go for it!

Sounds like a deal to me! Besides, if you're anything like me, you really can't stick to one project at a time! I am working on 3 fairy houses right now- with a 4th in the works in my mind! ;) I say buy it.

Yes, go for it. If you love doing this, go for it. Think how you could improve upon it. I'm thinking this might be something I'd enjoy doing someday.

Merry Christmas Kathi!

Well... I decided NOT to buy this house.
After I made my lists and checked them twice, I realized that I really can't afford to get another house right now. I need to finish what I've started first!

If anyone is interested it's listed on the Birmingham AL Craig's List.
