I found an elderly woman at a tag sale that says she is selling her Batrie dollhouse and TONS of high quality miniatures with it. I made an appointment with her to come see everything she has this coming Friday afternoon (6-27-08), between 1 and 2pm. Im excited to at least see what she has! But, I have never heard of Batrie dollhouses. She said she got it in the 80's, and its a huge house but does not know the name of it. I did a search on Google and it looks like Batrie made Real Good Toys houses like the Newport and stuff. But, i think they went out of business. Is Batrie the old name of the now Real Good Toys company? Im confused... Can someone please clarify???

*This unique dollhouse was put together in the 80's so some of the very small trim pieces might be missing or broken or minor imperfections might be present as with all vintage items. I'm sure this is underpriced, but hubby says it's time to pass this on to someone who has the time to finish it beautifully. If you have any questions, or would like to see additional pictures, please let me know

Let us know what you get :D

Well I dont think I will get the house. Unless shes selling it for dirt cheap which I doubt. She says she has tons of REALLY expensive high end minis, older pieces. Im dying to see what they are. I dont think she is selling everything though. just some stuff.. I cant wait till Friday afternoon!!!

I remember Batrie...they made some nice houses. I wondered what ever happened to them.

Apparently Real Good Toys bought them out...
