Etsy issued me a full refund on the shadowcliff dollhouse today. So I have my money back.  Thank you everyone for your emotional support. It was appreciated. I will be more careful in future about che

THANK YOU THANK YOU - It's mine now! Not bad, $110 with shipping. I'm super happy. The last one I saw was $400

The prices on dollhouses on eBay have really jumped. Things that are normally close to $100 are now $300+. Maybe the housing bubble will break soon.

This a still like I haven't seen in a long time. Close to me but sadly I have 0 room space.  https://appleton.craigslist.org/art/d/fond-du-lac-doll-house-kits-many/7263322898.html

Carmen, you sell that Granville in a heartbeat if you don't want it.

This is a half scale RGT New Orleans: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Electrified-Doll-House-Federal-Style-Handmade-Charming-Needs-TLC/383925580030

I've only seen this in half scale one other time when a kit was posted with Buy It Now and someone bought it before I had a chance. I'd consider bidding on this one but based on the bids so far and the high shipping price I think it'll go out of my comfort zone. I've never seen half scale windows like that, I wonder if they came with the kit.

Thank you Susie for trying. I appreciate the noise to Etsy. I reported it to my card already, and they refused to dispute it because I admitted that before I realized it was a fraud I had purchased it. So according to them it is purchased and I have to document the purchase and wait until it doesn't come or is the wrong item and call back with the earlier complaint I think that they will believe me and I will eventually get my money back. I am kind of sad that there is no lovely dollhouse for sale and coming to me free shipping. It is kind of like being told there is no Santa Clause. I did talk with Bonnie who was kind. She looked up the listing photo and identified not only the dollhouse but also the chandelier, curtains etc in the background. I told her I would give her a call she didn't think Etsy would do much but she would be amused the seller now has multiples of her dollhouse to sell. And that picture is hers.

Did you get this resolved? Etsy has removed the seller .... hope it all worked out

Why would a museum be selling one of their pieces I wonder?

Very RARE and hard to find....

I'm not so sure about rare, but the price...it's definitely one of a kind!

I don't know about the dating on that house; the kitchen appliances in it are white and in the '70s kitchen appliances I had were avocado green, harvest gold or copper brown!

I was just laughing at the gimmicks people use to justify over pricing...RARE. I agree the furniture is off. It might be homemade, but I think It is too much money. It will be interesting to see if it sells for that much!

It is not in a museum. It is in Bonnie Broel's private collection. She has been trying to sell it for years. Apparently targeting a museum in this go-around. Seems a bit unlikely considering what she wants for it. I saw it up close  and personal while touring her collection a few years ago. Jammed full of stuff, which no doubt cost her a lot to assemble -- she collected from all over the world as she traveled -- but still, I think she's dreaming.

The house itself seems well built. Might be worth the price for the shell alone for someone who wants a ready-made house to decorate, electrify.  The décor is certainly "unique". What's with the ice block in the bathtub? :D

They have TWO bathtubs, so maybe that's for chilling the bottles of champagne that they sip during long soaky baths.  I felt sorry for the kid in the brown suit who is not much bigger than the baby.

You think the seller is asking too much? I know its a subjective assessment. But i cant help but find humor in the description.
