more houses!


nearby, there is a museum which showcases oddities (a petrified cat from the early 1900's) and other interesting collections (antique medicine side show bottles/containers). The current show is of DOLLHOUSES!!! the majority of the display consists of these huge handmade houses of various themes built by one lady. i certainly can respect the amount of time and energy that was put into them only my sights were set on these vintage darlings:




the houses were bolted down so i was unable to photograph the insides. additionally, along the background walls were reproduction vintage doll house advertisements:
a dollar a set! a DOLLAR a SET!


that magnetic one looks like fun and all for just 3.33!

it has a little yard and a little fence and a little swing set! and if there is a little dog there better be little poops too.

You're back! When I was little, I had the house on the left in the first picture. Wish I still did. It was vintage when I played with it!
