Wedgewood Anyone?

I found these beautiful Wedgewood Williamsburg Potpourri Etruria & Barlaston teacups & saucers, quite lovely. Many people forget we carry more than dolls and dollhouse miniatures, but also Tea themed items for dolls and children, tiny teasets in the Ruetter Porcelain, but large as well so little girls can enjoy the charms of tea parties just like their mothers. These full size teacups and saucers were too lovely to resist, and right now we have them on Ebay in our  Auctions with a low starting bid or $9.99 or BIN at $14.99. I also have some damaged large scale Bespaq on auction as well, and will be listing more this week.
We also have some items not doll or miniature related, that I am cleaning out of my personal wardrobe- Etienne Aigner shoes and purses, barely worn. Many items are going to our Church's Haiti yard sale, as the fall is coming and it is out with the old and in with the new! Not only in our shop, but at home as well.
Please be sure to check our website King William Miniatures on the Yuletide Gardenfest Lights Tour & Dinner annual event- you may make your reservations on line NOW!Seating is limited, so be sure to make plans to join us for our annual Christmas event...and share the hobby of dolls, dollhouse miniatures and more with people who share your passion and interest.

New Christmas in July ornaments!

You may have noticed that we are decorating for Christmas in July! I couldn't resist....especially when our new dollhouse/doll/miniature themed ornaments arrived last week! It has been on my list to do to show collectors how to display their collections, whatever they may collect to advantage in their homes. I have done this for many years myself, and thought what better way than to showcase the shop with some of our antiques, linens, and dolls plus the merchandise!? Since we had a small amount of the ornaments arrive, I used two small trees, and our foldable table to create depth and height where needed. The trees are 2 ft and 4 ft high. The large doll is dressed in an antique dress off of Ebay that was for a child in the early 1900's, she is from my own collection- we call her the 'Big Amanda' doll after my daughter Amanda. The Westie stuffed dog is Melissa & Doug and is for sale in our shop & on our website and Ebay store. Baskets hold the excess porcelaine ornaments.
I have kept to a main color palette for summer-using cream, white, pastel pink & blues, as  burgundy, gold, green would have been far too heavy for summer decor.  The Big Amanda doll's hat and dress mixes into the cream/white palette, with shades of pastel blue and pink, with gold and silver accents, which the angel ornaments are used for. The draping is a cream damask tablecloth that is quite large, and covers the stackable folding tables and display unit the trees sit on. The picture carries the Victorian era theme over and compliments the display perfectly- I did this display in an hour- hanging the ornaments took me the longest. This display it is possible to leave up in your display/doll area/room all year, and display your finest pieces or ornaments. The tree can be changed for seasons, themes, or holidays, and add interest to your room or display area with the soft white lights on the trees. I chose the Victorian era as my focal theme as I can do so much with this decor period.  Doll or miniature trees add a timeless look, and if you have as many ornaments & dolls as I do, pressing them into service for decorating the tree is the next step to getting them out of those boxes!
Shop in our store now for marvelous items to begin your Christmas decorating! We are also planning our Yuletide Festival of Lights Tour & Dinner- Year 2! Check our website in August for more details on this splendid Christmas event!

Fun links- Leonardslee- Beyond the Dollhouse

This is a wonderful cool link I found while browsing the dollhouse forum of Dollhouse Emporium, located in the United Kingdom. Called Leonardslee, the link is here- Click on the gallery of links. This large display was inspired by a conservatory/garden the owner commissioned an estate that grew to astounding proportions. The link will probably not be available for long, as the gardens have been purchased by a private person, who is closing the gardens and the exhibit, which is being moved elsewhere. Enjoy the pictures, and download them as it is an incredible and considered one of the finest & largest miniature exhibits in the world.

We are members of Dollhouse Miniature Merchants Association, an organization supported by Bespaq International and have access to Exclusive items, only available to the miniature dollhouse brick and mortar shops.

Speaking as a Premiere dealer and a member of such a prestigious organization, I can truly say that Bespaq is the leading manufacturer of their dollhouse furniture.
