Cool Sad, mad moment!

Hello all I appear to be having a sad mad moment!
I am thinking of selling my Toll house!? Nuts I know! I longed for the TH and am now thinking of selling it - part of me thinks it's mad but another part thinks it's sensible. I have a house which I don't have space for but can't sell as my Mum brought it for me, so maybe this house could take the TH's space!? I am also incredibly short of cash so selling may give me some much needed money!? Could it be a decision I regret though!?

If you are undecided it is probably better not to sell it as I think you would regret it. Could you not wait until after Christmas and see how you feel then. I know being short of cash is an incentive to sell but if you really regret it will you have to pay more to get another one?

Why don't you do what I did - put it somewhere out of sight if possible and just think about it! I put my large house upstairs (hubby cursed me at the time) and found that I didn't miss it and that's when I made the final decision to sell and I don't regret it but it might have been different if I'd just done it. Are there any miniatures that you don't really use that perhaps you could sell to get some cash?

Well, my first instinct is to tell you to sell it . . . . to me! But I think Elayne is right, Toll Houses will get harder and harder to find as time passes so if you sell now and later regret it, you may never get the chance to buy another. I'd suggest dismantling it and storing it out of the way for a few months. If you don't miss having it around and if you don't get inspired to have another go at it in six months, sell it then.

Oh there is no dismantling it as it is firmly glued together!
Yes that is what is holding me back is that the TH's are rare.

Wasnt it you that waited along time to find the Toll house?Dont give it up.Dont do anything without giving it alot of thought.If you did sell it and didnt get much for it, that would be very annoying.

I would put it away somewhere untill after christmas and then think about it. You wont want to rush into selling it and regretting it later.

Question Fate!?

Wondering now if fate is intervening!?
I decided last night to put my TH up for sale and then this morning I had a rearrange of my dolls houses as I have another to use as my witchy dwelling, however my houses don't quite fit right any other way - is this fate telling me to leave things as they are!? Is fate telling me to keep the TH where it is!?

I wouldn't sell it for anything. It took you months to find it. Put it. Away. I have boxed dolls houses more than I have fingers in both my hands. Most of them are all discontinued. They are stored and put away for a rainy day. When the day comes they will be built
