...Works in miniature
Hi fellow Aussie blogger :) I discovered your website using some google keyword yesterday (of course I can't remmber that keyword now)... and have restarted up the passion to find a Kaleidoscope House! where do you buy your retro miniatures from? thanks!
Hi DrewGood luck on the hunt for a Kaleidoscope - when they come up on eBay these days they go for very silly amounts of money. Which completely (I thought) justified me being rather too sharp with a friend who decided to use mine as a wine table the other night :-)I buy my retro minis mainly on eBay. Mainly the US, UK and German sites plus I also went through a patch buying on Tradera in Swedish (which I don't speak!)There was also a stall at the Sydney show which used to sell vintage minis but they retired this year :-(
yes i don't have GBP$700 for a dollhouse which is what they are going for right now on ebay. stupid amounts of money for which i need to spend on nappies! yes i'd think you were justified on telling your friend to use her/his lap rather than the KH! do you find dust a problem with the KH?UK sellers... doesn't the shipping costs scare you?
Hi DrewThere doesn't appear to be an email address on your blogger profile - perhaps you'd like to email me from the link on mine?RG Maden in South Melbourne stocked the KH - there is a very slight chance they might have one still :-/Dust doesn't seem to be too much of a problem except from the open skylight (stupid design feature - whenever it rains the house would flood if it were real)When I was an ardent eBay buyer I just factired in the cost of postage when bidding. I found it odd, though, that I could get a dollshouse posted from the UK or Europe easily but the same house from the US would cost $250 to ship (yes, I learnt my lesson on that one!)Now if only they'd put the Marc Newson KH car into production...
hi, it's drey (short for audrey)visit my blog on http://bijoukaleidoscope.blogspot.com (you'll see KH on one of the top few posts) and perhaps you'll discover some mad interior design bluffs via BijouKaleidoscope :)RG Maden??? WHat's the bet I will have to sell off one kidney for it (read my blogpost) :)
