This is it. The letter that so many brick and mortar shops have to write these days....Due to a variety of personal and business reasons we have come to the conclusion that it is time for Happily Ever After to become an Online Only store. We greatly appreciate all of you who stopped by the shop to visit, shop, and share your enthusiasm for the hobby; your support these past 15 years meant the world to us. We hope you will continue to support us in our new venture as an Online Only shop!
- in stock paints 80% off
- assembled dollhouses and kits are 50% - 70% off regular price
- all miniature items in the store are 15% off regular price
As of right now we hope to be open until the end of the year (and maybe even into the early months of 2020), but we cannot guarantee it. Further reductions may or may not be announced depending on how quickly we must convert to an online only store. Come early to ensure the best selection.
We can no longer offer layaways or holds. If you currently have a layaway open, do not fear: continue to pay as usual and your item(s) will be shipped to you upon layaway completion.
All customer projects currently in the shop for construction/renovation will be completed by us. We will contact you with information regarding when and where you can pick up the completed work. We are no longer accepting any new projects.
Sale prices are not applicable on prior purchases or layaways, labor fees, materials used in dollhouse renovations/construction/repairs, or on gift certificate purchases. Gift certificates are still valid and may be used even when we are online only - please email us before you place the order and we will explain to you how we will apply the gift certificate to your order.
Thank you again for the wonderful Brick and Mortar store experience and we look forward to seeing you in our online shop: www.happily-ever-after.biz

[07/31/19] OH MY GOSH! I ALMOST MISSED IT! July is our 15th Anniversary (we officially opened back in July 2004!) and July is almost over! In honor of our 15th anniversary (and because they take up a lot of space and I need to clear the room for all the stuff we will bring back from the Trade Show in less than 3 weeks): all assembled dollhouses and all dollhouse kits are on sale 50% off, starting today thru August 31st! Stop by the store today and get your dream dollhouse today!

Update on that Duracraft Farmhouse #500 we were working on....
lori-majesticmansiondollhouse.blogspot.com Broken by movers, this Duracraft Farmhouse #500 was brought to us to be glued back together. Doesn't look bad - just a few porch posts m...
Customer picked up their white Duracraft Farmhouse #500 this morning and we have begun to glue back together the other customer's red Duracraft Farmhouse #500 that was broken during their move to the area. And the next customer on the wait-list brought their kit to us to build and guess what house it is? Yup, the Duracraft Farmhouse #500. What are the odds of THAT?
Finished another customer's dollhouse - update on blog!

My blog post on a customer's project:
Ever wonder what the Southern Pine flooring looked like sealed? Ones on left have 1 coat of semi gloss polyurethane on them; the ones on right are straight outta the package.
Been working hard finishing up this Victoria's Farmhouse for a customer. Still have some minor finishing touches to do (glue down baseboards, put up border in master bedroom, install crown molding in 2 rooms), but I'm in the home stretch!
House is all shingled! Next week I can glue all the exterior trims on!
Productive day! Almost all shingled!
Baby played nicely with her toys in the play pen for about 45 minutes before falling off to sleep about an hour ago, so with all that free time, I got the papers cut and installed in the most difficult room in the customer's house! One more room to paper and then I shingle!
Have a green day, my friends! Happy Pretending-to-be Irish Day! Lol
Update on blog for anyone interested:
Baby took an 1 hour 30 minute nap so I got to wallpaper some of the customer's Victoria's Farmhouse! Baby woke up when I was half-way done with the bay bump-out room so it's only half papered...

Ok, mini friends: I need opinions. Which scene out the window looks like the most realistic view from city apartment window in December? There are 4 options (2 pics per scene):

So cute...as long as they stay outdoors! Lol
boredpanda.com Recently, photographer Simon Dell stumbled upon a family of mice running around his garden. Instead of reaching for the traps, however, he took out his tools. Dell built the mice a miniature village and they repaid him by posing in front of his camera.
Have been working on a customer's Victoria's Farmhouse these past few weeks....lots of painting!
