a wonderful place

the micro rooms arranged around the edges of the store are as fascinating as a museum, and I found the staff friendly and helpful. Unlike the grumpy guy who runs the dollhouse section at F. A. O. Schwartz, this is a place where you can find affordable wonders and an owner who clearly delights in finding unusual and well made things.

Buyer Reware

  • No, I would not go back!

I ordered a dollhouse that I saw on the website of "My Tiny Dollhouse" by going to the shop and paying a deposit. That was one year ago and I still don't have the dollhouse. I was told it would take a couple of months. When I call the shop, the help is totally useless. The owner gives me the run around. I probably will have no dollhouse and won't be able to get my deposit refunded. BUYER BEWARE!!

A childhood oasis

I have known about this store since I was 10 years old. Whenever we went into the area, I would beg my mother to let us visit. Finally, after 20 years, I was finally able to enter and purchase my first miniature doll house items. The store is neat and organized. The staff is friendly and very helpful. They answered my questions and helped me pick out my bathroom, and as I walked around, I could hear and see the wonderful service they gave everyone who walked in. Even if just to see the store, I recommend that all should drop in and revisit their childhood.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
