  1. Rare NOS Walmer The Old Village Shop kit. https://www.ebay.com/itm/124721347849?hash=item1d09f8bd09:g:nRUAAOSw1Y9gnBwQ
  2. I also used the kitchen kit from SDK Miniatures for the Victoriana kitchen. You can customize them to fit your room. I used Acme refrigerator magnets for the stove and refrigerator. I just repainted them to match the kitchen colors better. The cabinets were easy to build and look great.
  3. The Bam Bam is a miracle tool! Since Carrie first suggested it some time back, I purchased one. I will never use brads again. Eyelets are so much easier with the tool. Clear tape, either packing or scotch is what I use to cover connections.
  4. That is the Victorian by American Craft Products, Inc. The bay window is an addition by the kit builder. It would normally have a double window there.
  5. Wasn't someone on here looking for a Willowcrest? Here is one for the "What are they thinking?" file, on the shipping. I guess for local pickup, it might be worth it . . . https://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-Greenleaf-The-Willowcrest-Wooden-Dollhouse-8005-TLC-/254906365976?&_trksid=p2056016.l4276
  6. This is an interesting take/bash of the RGT Newport/New Haven Kit. It is something I would not have thought of doing. Not a bad price if you are in the area for local pickup. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Large-Tudor-Doll-House/143979363443?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  7. I did this for the Victoriana bash. I used Grandmother Stover's Glue (bookbinder's glue) and spread a thin layer on the cardstock to adhere the wallpaper, and then the cardstock to the painted/primed walls. It hides wiring and any irregularities in the walls. I have had no issues with it coming loose or buckling from the humidity here in New Orleans. I plan on doing the same thing with the First Lady.
  8. This is true! I used to buy an IGMA furniture pieces off eBay when they would come up every so often. They were running around $30 for a 1/12 piece and $20 for 1/24 item. It was fun to find his furniture to add to my stash to fill certain houses. Of late, the last auction I tried to bid on, went for over $300! All of them the past 6 months have skyrocketed like that. While it is good for the Artisan and the seller on eBay (and eBay too), his pieces are now out of my price range. Makes me treasure the items I have all the more! Awesome Bobie! So glad you were able to get that on
  9. This one is still for sale (big surprise). It was the one I posted a few months back that had a starting price of $1499.00 https://www.ebay.com/itm/S-W-Craft-MINIATURE-WONDERLAND-Dollhouse-Lakeside-Manor-930-A-B-KIT-SET-NOS-NRFB/193734251738?hash=item2d1b7614da:g:9e4AAOSwj0NeYsxn
  10. Don't ever forget, if you can't find an old thread to answer a question, start a new one and ask away. So many talented people on here, someone will have an answer for you!
  11. Overpriced (I think) Dura-Craft VM800 Victorian. It does include shipping. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Dura-Craft-Victorian-Mansion-Wooden-13-Rooms-DollHouse-Kit-VM-800-/124622574149?&_trksid=p2056016.l4276
  12. Good idea Kathie! We have some in mind, but have put off the plaster work at the moment and concentrating on more pressing needs.
  13. We have 3 beautiful medallions in our house. One in the foyer, the parlor, and dining room. The dining room being the most decorative. I would have loved for Lloyd to see the house and tell us more about the plasterwork (we also have cove ceilings in these rooms). We have some areas that need repair and finding someone is a challenge. But yes, they are for decoration. Medallions have been used for decoration without a chandelier. Many Federal style homes did this on the ceilings. As Holly said, if you want to add one, do so! It is your little world for enjoyment.
  14. This Skilcraft kit pops up from time to time. And I know some members have been looking for it. Its a good starting price or even buy it now and shipping is only $36. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Victorian-Manor-With-Coach-House-doll-house-Made-by-Skilcraft/393174808599?hash=item5b8b0b7817:g:OmkAAOSw7AZgL~WW
