Hello! I have collected antique and collectible dolls houses for over thirty years. I particularily like the paper on wood lithographed houses and shops. I also love Wagner, Silber & Fleming and one-of-a-kind houses with a history attached to them. I have been a collector for all of these years up until a few months ago. I now find myself becoming a "seller" as I am trying to help a friend sell off an estate of a lifetime dollhouse and toy collector.
My husband has become a wonderful help in lighting, with great care, my old dollshouses and has done minor repairs that I have felt needed to be done. I generally do not repair my old houses because I enjoy the patina and "age" they develop over years of being played with or cared for by others before me.
What fun to find a site where we can share and sell or buy items! I am so happy that "Lizzie" - a long-time friend of mine from England - sent me this link!
