I see an awful lot of the books I have in your list! FYI, for those interested, the Helen Ruthberg book is OOP, and I believe the one by Thelma Newman and Virginia Merrill is, also. I also see that the Willowcrest didn't speak to you, either.

LOL Holly. I love the Willowcrest style, but am really more into the half and quarter scales now. Love the space savings! If Greenleaf does the Willowcrest (and the Glencroft) in half inch scale, I will be first in line!

Oh, do I ever hear you! When I have built & found homes for all my 1:12 kits the only 1:12 house I plan to keep will be the Craftsman Bungalow I want to scratch build. Of course, I want to make an apartment for my 1:6 dolls...

Thanks for asking Kris and for the reminder.

I'm so sorry I forgot to post that they are all sold now. I put them on Ebay and they sold while the forum was down, so I completely forgot to post here.

Kris, I let the mods know. You can google subject areas for mini making books and then see if your local library can get a copy (like on interlibrary loan) for you to see if it's something you'd want.

      Hi all,

      Hoping that our forum of educated dollhouse builders/rehabbers may be able to point me in the right direction here. I'm looking at possibly buying an incredibly old and to my eyes lovely dollhouse -- but I know it will need restoration. I do not want the value to depreciate b/c I've attempted to rectify problems with it's current condition. However, there are also no qualified rehab artisans of antique dollhouses anywhere near me. If nothing else I would at least like to find some books on restorations and the how to's of, and indeed the older houses like Bliss and Gottschalk dollhouses to educate myself more. I was amazed today that though my local library has literally no books on dollhouses or miniatures at all, the librarian called the district director and they bought the book "The Genius of Moritz Gottschalk" and are going to contact me when it's in. I know I was beyond surprised they would do so, but was incredibly grateful as that book is expensive! I've a few books on Bliss houses already, but again -- nothing in regards to the restoration of antique houses. So now I'm left wondering if there are actually any books, or if folks may be willing to share sources and/or tips on antique dollhouse restorations?  My thanks in advance for any possible help!
