Default dollshouse shop in California

There was a request in the forum about finding a store in California that sold good quality dollhouses. I bought a dollhouse in Bakersfield that is made of plywood. It is very strong (we lugged it in the trunk of the car from Bakersfield back to Maryland). The name of the store is Barber's Miniatures and the telephone number if 661-589-9118. I believe he makes up his own designs. Mine has a wraparound porch and large rooms. He was also very helpful with suggestions for lighting etc. If I remember right, he makes the dollhouses and she sells the items in the store. Hope this helps.

That's what I want to do when I grow up! Actually, hubby and I were discussing starting up some kind of business that deals with dollhouses and miniatures as a lead-in to our retirement (ha, ha funny --- "retirement" ! ! !)
