Mini Mart: The Dolls House Mall

1/6 scale doll dressing table
Check out the tiny safety pins and hair grips on the dressing table!

Supplier: The Dolls House Mall
Website: www.thedollshousemall.com

Products: I've been coveting half the inventory of The Dolls House Mall for years - I just put off ordering from them because I knew I'd end up spending a fortune. I did. But it was totally worth it! Among other things, I bought hair grips and safety pins, buttons and elastic bands, necklaces, a remembrance day poppy and a razor with spare razor blades. I was so impressed with each and every item - they are very true to scale, even the cheese grater which I had imagined would be closer to 1/8, at least.

They even make miniscule paperclips!

I also bought a bunch of printed paper products because it's so difficult to find stuff which is clear and legible in smaller scales. I got a palmestry chart, medical diagrams, a fold-out map, and stamps. I tried out the personalised photo frame service too. You send them a jpg image and they create a miniature framed photo for you. I chose a picture of Marianna (of course) and it's absolutely adorable! The picture they used comes on a sheet of 4 individual prints, so they sent me the rest of the sheet which is really cool.

No room in this house, miniature or otherwise, is complete without a picture of Marianna...

Post and Packing: The website is really easy to use, and you can check out with Paypal which is always a plus. Second class postage was £3, and my order was sent out in a thin box, so it could fit through the letter box which is such a great idea for miniatures. One of the items I ordered (a little medal) was out of stock so I was refunded and sent a slightly different medal instead. Definitely can't quibble with that!

    1. Haha, my excuse is always that my hobby is miniature so it can't take up that much space... Then my other half points out that the miniatures just keep multiplying so it makes no difference! I've got three houses at the moment, then I'll have to get another for Marianna when she gets a little older, of course... ;)

    1. I love fiddling about and rearranging it all in there - so much easier to move furniture around when it's only a couple of inches high! ;) Aw, no problem. My mum had the baby the other night so I was just blogging and watching TV all evening. It was bliss! :D x

    1. Hehe, it's one of my worst fears - I dread to think how much money's worth has ended up in the hoover over the years!

  6. Oh my goodness, these are all so tiny I'd be scared of sneezing and losing the lot.
    It must be a bit like playing operation when you are putting all the pieces together - which look fabulous by the way :)

    1. Thank you! It's weird because when I was a kid I didn't like dolls and miniatures because they were too small and fiddly, and I had absolutely no patience. So I guess I'm just making up for it now - even though I still have no patience! :)
