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.
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!
