Topic tags/keywords: dollhouse lundby swap

My grandmother had been planning to make some dollhouses before she died and I found a couple of boxes of lights/lamps that she had purchased. I don’t want to sell these things – I just want to give them to someone who makes dollhouses.

Here’s the catch: :D
You must post a picture of the dollhouse you are making/have made, comment on the challenges and cover the cost of shipping. (I’d prefer to swap for penblanks or other turning items instead of cash for the shipping).

Here are the contents. Wish I knew more about these. I know the transformer has a 220 plug. I believe my uncle bought these for her during a trip to Sweden several years ago.

I have a dollhouse that I am making for my daughter, but I have a couple more years to work on it. I want to make sure she’s old enough to take care of it.

I hope that you find a new owner for them.

I don’t ‘do’ dollhouses per se, but I do make miniatures. Dioramas and vignettes mostly. I try to make most everything in my displays, including furniture. Examples can be seen in my picasa web album http://picasaweb.google.com/MiniMemories My profile picture is the log cabin I made.

If you don’t have any takers for these pieces I will put them to good use, and if I can’t use them, I would see that they get donated (in your name) to someone who could, as I’m a member of several miniature groups.

Mary,

Your stuff is absolutely AMAZING! Thank you so much for wanting to try using these. I have no use for them and hate throwing brand new stuff out. Hopefully it will be useful for you or someone else.

I will pick up a priority mail box tonight to see how much will fit in. I will send you a PM for shipping info.

I used to build dollhouses, and that’s what led me into furniture. I’ve seen those accessories before and they can really add to a well-built house. I once had a use for them but not anymore. Nice stuff though.

Hi there…is this still available? My Lundby childhood dollhouse has lost all its lighting and I would LOVE to refurbish it to pass down to my grandchildren.

Sorry Penny,
They are gone. Good luck refurbishing your “house” – it would make a good blog.

”..I have a couple more years to work on it”.

Life is too short.

Have your say...
