Another of my decorated houses will be going up for auction on Easter Sunday (March 27th 2016) at 7pm GMT. This time it will be Meadowcroft Cottage that is going on the auction block. It comes complete with furniture (not the original furniture) and bidding starts at £45 or you can buy it now for £65. Please click on the gallery images below to see the cottage and its contents.
Happy Easter to you!
I hope everyone is having peaceful Easter, and enjoying the holiday doing whatever makes you happy!
Following up on the last update, the decorated Applewood Department Store sold on ebay, and now the vintage house has been listed (with some furniture), you can find it listed as 'Sylvanian Families decorated 1980's House plus furniture' and the auction will end on Easter Sunday. Here is a picture of the house with the furniture that has been listed with it. (The figures are not included!) Head over to eBay if you want a chance to acquire this one of a kind building with over 60 pieces of furniture and accessories. I am starting the auction at £39.99 or you have the option to 'buy it now' to ensure you don't miss out.
I mentioned in a previous blog post that I had finally managed to get the Champagne rabbits on eBay. I was so excited to be getting them but unfortunately I had to return them as the father figure had a damaged nose. Needless to say I was most disappointed, I thought the search was over and I could add them to the family album but alas it was not to be. I did however have my faith in eBay sellers restored. This was due to the pleasant experience with the seller who was very friendly and understood completely why I had to return them. She was apologetic that the damage wasn't apparent in the photo and refunded my entire payment including both outward and return postage! Amazing! She sent nice messages and thanked me for returning them so I was most surprised and happy with the overall outcome and I didn't lose money on them!
After much searching I have managed to find them again. This time listed for just less than £30, which is a bit more than last time, but this time they are listed as brand new in the box, hopefully they will be in perfect condition and I will get some lovely snaps and be able to add to the family album!
Also, I received my Sylvanian Families 2016 exclusive figure from the collectors club. She is just fabulous! I really do think she is a better exclusive figure than previous years. I have had the Cottontail Grandparents and the Dante wedding cats which were nice, but this figure seems like something special. Maybe it is because of the box, maybe because of the fabric of her dress and the addition of the little handbag, but the finish on her seems extra special, I am delighted to add her to my collection. If I am being totally honest I think it was her that made me join up to the collectors club again!
Hopefully my next update will be soon and it will be a picture of my Champagne rabbits!
Just wanted to let you all know that I have put one of my decorated buildings up for sale on Ebay.
