That happened to me. :( 

Well that just stinks.....I must say that eBay is good about siding on the buyers side. Especially if you have photographic evidence of that type of swindle. I have bought many open box houses off of eBay, and I always communicate with the seller and ask them to inventory the box against the directions. If they don't reply, I don't bid. If they say they have,and it was lie, I save the communication for evidence just in case.

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.

That’s smart Carrie! I too do something similar and honestly over all the years I’ve had maybe two instances where the vendor was shady - Ebay sided with me both times .... disappointing for sure that there are people that do that but that’s what those protections are for!

The first time I saw a half scale Queen Anne Rowhouse kit on eBay the seller said the box was open and they didn't know if it was all there. I asked them to take pictures of the pieces or compare them against the instructions for me and they said no. So I didn't bid on it, but I was very disappointed because it was a rare house and I really wanted it!

(But fate smiled on me later and I now have more rowhouses than I need...!)

I did have an experience with a Realife furniture kit where I ended up with cutouts. That was back when you could see who purchased items and another buyer from another of that seller's auctions reached out to me to say it had happened to her and ask if I was in the same boat. I might not have noticed it in time if she hadn't. We both contacted the seller and got our money back. I think it was an honest mistake.

for the most part I think people are not doing something purposely, but of course some of them do exist - I simply try not to let them taint the world for me.

Thank you, Jenn!  I agree that the upgrades make it look a lot better.  I like the brickwork on the front; I wonder why it wasn't continued all the way around.

It's considered a bargain line dollhouse. The bricks are engraved on that front panel and that's it.

Someone posted this cabinet on my local NextDoor. I'm posting the pics instead of a link because people not local to me wouldn't be able to see it. I think it would be cool to turn into a big roombox/mini display case type thing. They want $100 for it -- a fair price but I don't really have a good place to put it. (But if it were free I'd be all over it!)

Here's an Americana for $8K ...not completely finished and has no doors! Looks pretty on the outside though.

I do see a Bodo Hennig stove but....$8000

It is missing the top of the stack-the bent part that goes into the wall. Maybe they would knock off a few pennies.😄

If that four-sided sofa is a June Clinkscales, all the artisan pieces would probably run the price up there.  That's serious $$$$.

Oh this is sort of sad - I happened upon this house listing in NJ - and there are dollhouses smashed on the front lawn. Multiple houses. And there are more houses inside. And in the basement - a TON of houses. Possible hoarding situation, but I can't tell.

It's just rather sad...but if I bought it I'd be going through the miniatures...looks like they come with the house.
