Dolls and Minis carries everything you need to build, furnish, and accessorize your dollhouse.  The shop has recently expanded to accommodate their ever growing dollhouse and miniatures inventory.  They specialize in European front-opening style dollhouses.  Front-opening dollhouses close completely which keeps the dust out (and the cats!).

Dolls and Minis can build and wire the dollhouse of your dreams or refurbish your old dollhouse.  They can even custom build a dollhouse just for you.  For the adventurous, they can teach you to do it yourself.  They often have restorations in progress in the studio and encourage visitors to drop in and have a look.

    I am looking for a refurbished Lundby Smalwood doll house from the late 60’s. Do you have anything like this or know where I can get one? I need it for Xmas for my 8 yr old daughter.
    Thanks for your help.
    Happy holidays.

    Hi Jennifer,
    We have some pretty old dollhouses out in our warehouse “attic” but they are all Real Good Toys products… you might try putting an ad on Craig’s list or posting on some of the facebook dollhouse/miniatures group pages.
    Wish you the best of luck!

    I was happy to know that in Wellington, Ohio there is a full service dollhouse place. I have been thinking of moving back to Columbus, Ohio within the next year (brother lives there) and was concerned about dollhouse stores in Ohio. I now live in Southern California. Was happy to know this. Your store looks fabulous and I will tell my brother about it. Happy New Year and hope your business thrives.

    I have doing business with Dolls and minis for the past few months. Dawn is the most helpful mini shop I have dealt with and has the patience to help newbee’s. She gets your order correct and delivered in a very timely manner. I hope to visit her store soon.

    Dawn, we drove to Wellington to see you and purchase a few items for our dollhouse. Your shop was no longer. Are you doing business anywhere?

    Hope you continue to check your website.

    Look forward to hearing from you.
