Dolls House Fairs - About Our Miniature Fairs

Our Miniature Dolls House Fairs...

Dolls house fairs have been going for many years and are as popular as ever! With both visitors and exhibitors travelling vast lengths to meet and exchange ideas, the requirement for cost-effective yet busy fairs has grown through-out the UK in the past year.

Dolls House Fairs is focussed on providing low-cost table/stand costs to exhibitors as well as accessible and well advertised dolls house fairs.

Being a new venture, our fairs are still growing but our primary aim is to deliver a simple, cost effective way for exhibitors to showcase their work in a friendly environment.

Dolls Houses - The background...

A dollhouse or doll's house is a toy home, made in miniature. For the last century, dollhouses have primarily been the domain of children but their collection and crafting is also a hobby for many adults. The term dollhouse is common in the United States and Canada. In UK the terms dolls' house or dollshouse are used.

Today's dollhouses trace their history back about four hundred years to the baby house display cases of Europe, which showed idealized interiors. Smaller doll houses with more realistic exteriors appeared in Europe in the 18th century. Early dollhouses were all handmade, but following the Industrial Revolution and World War II, they were increasingly mass-produced and became more standardized and affordable.

Contemporary children's play dollhouses are mostly in 1:18 (or 2/3") scale, while 1:12 (or 1") scale is common for dollhouses made for adult collectors.

Dollhouses are available in different forms. From ready-made and decorated houses to kits to custom built houses made to the customer's design. Some design and build their own dollhouse. Simpler designs might consist of boxes stacked together and used as rooms.

Miniature objects used for decoration inside dollhouses include furniture, interior decorations, dolls and items like books and clocks. Some of these are available ready-made, but may also be homemade.

There are dozens of miniature trade shows held throughout the year by various miniature organizations, where artisans and dealers display and sell miniatures. Often, how-to seminars and workshops are part of the show features. Miniature stores also hold classes. There are Internet forums, blogs and using other online social media concentrated in dollhouses and miniatures. Enthusiasts also share images online.
