For the Attention of Australians
When I checked my emails this morning I received one from the people at Dolls House Emporium announcing they had launched an Australian version of their site. After a split second of pure exhilaration, I realised this was not an Australian based DHE store and somewhat disapointingly everything ordered from it still has to come all the way from the UK, but it does list everything in Australian dollars and makes it clear what us Aussies have to pay in postage; a flat $12 fee for orders under $100 or free for orders over $100. It also lists the expected delivery times to Australia. What mystifies me is why on the 12th of November DHE are launching a new site that clearly says enter our Weird and Wacky competition when entries for that competition closed on the 31st of October. I guess because in most respects, this "new" site is just a carbon copy of the main DHE site and the admins of the main site have been too slack to keep that one up to date.
You will find the Aussie version of DHE here.
In other Aussie news, Fairy Meadow Miniature in Sydney has recently started stocking a small selection of Greenleaf houses. Luckily none of the houses they have at the moment are on my "ohhhh, I've got to have it" list or I would have spent way too much money by now, but hopefully the range they carry will be expanded in the future.

Finally, the Little Doll House which is located right here in Tassie has finally launched their online store. Their range is somewhat . . . . shall we say pedestrian. They carry a good range of the basics, but don't seem to have a lot in the way of special features or pre-victorian items. They do have a selection of DHE products (including Christmas items) for those of you who don't want to wait for shipping from the UK.
