Just a note of advice! under the dolls house miniatures you will find many items which are mass produced, yet labeled 'collectable.'
NOW! I have to say I have some of these, and it is not that they don`t make a good enough display, they do! HOWEVER, with stickers 'made in China' on the bottom, and brand new in box, I can not see how these can be correctly described as 'collectable.'
NEVER bid much beyond the basic for these items, there will be 50 more up and coming within days!!!
The TRUE dolls house miniature collectables are items dating from the 60s, 70s, and 80s, NOT mass produced modern pieces from China!!!
Also justified as 'collectable' are Hand Made items, both Vintage, and Modern. As hand made items are not mass produced, they will always stand a good chance of being future collectables! You can pay the same price for an item hand made, with care to detail, and fabulous workmanship, as you will for an item mass produced with 'made in China' stuck to the bottom...How would you spend your money?
Please see the guide I have written for more info on the best of hand made items, by the likes of jamnatmat, flea567 and dettas- darling- dolls,minimix150 is another WELL advised individual for stunning hand made garden miniatures. You have to see these to believe them! Ther is so much talent out there, why buy mass produced by the Chinese? Support the Brittish makers!!!
Please also add your opinions for others! Once you have purchased either Vintage collectables, or hand made items, you may be slightly cross with your self for paying ex amount for a mass produced item made in China (and won`t want to do so again)!!
