Default Wish list for discontinued DHE houses - VOTE HERE PLEASE!!

Message from Jackie:

Thank you all for your enthusiasm for this project to collate our back-catalogue of house designs over The Dolls House Emporium’s long and proud history!

We're keen to make it worthwhile from your point of view moving forward.

[ Details on all the houses are here <click> ]

So please vote again but only if you would want to order the property if it becames available again.

This means you really must be honest and vote for a house you really would like to buy ... the reason being we're actively looking at bringing the right house or houses back if there is sufficient demand.

Sufficient demand means different things for different properties. As I am sure you'll understand, the minimum order quantities from our different manufacturers varies, and of course it may not be as possible to obtain such a cost-effective product as it was when the houses were launched, so it really is a wish-list until we can do the sums. When enough collectors have voted for a property, we will give up to date information on the price, so that orders can be placed. At that point, if enough orders are taken, the properties will be ordered from our suppliers and you will be advised of an approximate delivery date.

Please remember that each house is lovingly made by hand. That means, for example, that each glazing bar in every window is made by taking a tree and cutting it again and again into the finest strip of wood a few millimetres wide before the ends are mitred to fit into the window frame.. So please understand if you dolls’ house takes several months to be delivered. It will be worth waiting for!

Please vote - but vote carefully! Your actions could determine what happens with your favourite dolls' house supplier!!

Thank you very much for your support with this project.
Warm wishes,
Jackie Lee

I see Kates Cottage had a good vote, was there any decision to re-release it ?
And are there any plans for something more unusual such as the Market Cross.?

Oh never knew about this thread. And what a great idea to have a poll.

I would love to see some unusual dolls houses instead of the normal boxes on top of each other with the stair case in the middle. The DHE had some lovely dolls houses in the past.

Hello DHE and mini enthusiasts.... after the poll (and all the hard work done by Rebecca, producing that amazing thread on DHE houses past and present) -
- was there any outcome from it?

It looked as though Kate's Cottage was the overall winner (I voted Toll House, btw) and I understood that one of the properties might have been brought back after the poll..
Or did the sale of DHE change things?

Some people have said that they would like to have the smaller, more quirky properties, rather than, essentially, boxes with central staircases. Couldn’t agree more.
(If DHE were to create some mock Gothic properties, either a small lodge cottage, or a huge rambling pile, I'd be first in the queue. )
