So, half-scale furniture. What's out there for purchase is getting limited as manufacturers close down or discontinue production. What I see for sale is overly ornate, not the style I want, or too niche. I could be wrong, but I think most of us are building houses, not shops or dentist offices.
Some of you have the skill to make your own furniture. I built a passable corner cabinet, but my crafting skills aren't that great and I have very limited tools.
That brings me to kits. I've made a few by Cassidy Creations that have come out great, but too often those kits have missing pieces, pieces the wrong size, and confusing/wrong instructions.
There are some great sellers on Etsy making laser-cut kits. Those I've made successfully were from RedCottageMiniatures, SDKMiniatures, MelissasMiniWereld, and HalfScaleMiniatures.
I'm curious to know whose kits have others had success with. Do you have a favorite designer/seller? What do you like best about the kits?
Hello Miniature Lovers!
Does anyone want to take a road trip? We are cleaning out Grandma's collection and have quite a list of dollhouse kits, unfinished houses, supplies and furniture to sale. We would LOVE to sell the whole lot as a pickup. Wouldn't know the first thing about shipping this stuff or know nothing of ebay. We are located in Hutchinson, KS, so we are almost smack dab in the middle of the country.
We do believe all kits are complete. Some boxes are pretty worn. A couple of the incomplete builds are as is (the two we couldn't identify). List and pics:
Kits: Bellingham Farm House, Alexandra, Newberg, Granville, Duracraft Farmhouse
Incomplete builds: Mint Julip, Victorian Cottage Jr that needs a little work, two unknown, San Fran bash and a cute little greenleaf
We know a ballpark figure we'd like, so please....make an offer! Oh, and don't worry....Grandma is fine....just downsizing and off to the next hobby! Please see below link for photos.......
I have two partial kits-Fairfield and McKinley-free. I also have a Garfield that has been started. Whoever started it has done a beautiful job so far.all the punched out parts are bagged and labeled. Not really shippable,but willing to meet people part way (located between Santa Fe and Albuquerque). Want a totally reasonable amount. Mostly want it to move on. Contact me for pictures,as I don't seem to upload pics.
Hi Everyone! It's been a while since I've posted on the forum but I have been lurking a bit. I have decided that my piles of "stuff" are a bit out of hand so I'm going to keep some select items but get rid of the rest. I have one or two House of Miniature furniture kits and before listing them elsewhere I thought I would give first dibs to everyone here.
Here's the list. Sorry it's not in numerical order. The number in () is the amount of the kit I have. Most of them are still in plastic wrap.

I have just completed a Beacon Hill (more or less). I wondered if anyone would like my box of scraps? Most of the sheets are intact (with the pieces punched out, of course). I never used the shutters, so all those pieces are there. I am willing to send the box and all the scrapwood to anyone who wants it.
