|My favorite find of the day! How cute!!|
Since rekindling my miniature obsession this March with my own dollhouse makeover, I've been wanting to venture up the the Upper East Side to visit a place called, 'Tiny Doll House' on 78th Street.
I vaguely remember visiting (and loving!) this store when I was just a teenager attending NYU.

The store is quite narrow and small as you might imagine, but it's arranged very nicely, so that every inch is maximized.
Upon entering the store I was greeted by this awesome Halloween display which got me super excited - since as most people know - this is my favorite time of year! There were amazing Halloween cookies, cakes, decorations and libations to pick from. I ended up selecting a mini pumpkin carving scene pictured at the top of this post.
Tiny Doll House offers something for everyone. There are plenty of expensive collector pieces, as well as adorable mini foods and decor starting at just 3 or 4 dollars. Young kids with an allowance can indulge just as easily as an adult.
What I enjoyed most in this store, is that there is an air of whimsy and happiness. I didn't feel rushed or awkward, which I tend to feel in New York shops that expect visitors to spend a certain amount of money. I can see why this space lends it self to admirers of any age.
Not only can you purchase anything under the sun for a dollhouse here, but you can also find dollhouses in any style you can imagine!
Here is my other treasured purchase - a clown ice cream sundae. Are you seeing this Friendly's? LOL. It is so cute!
If you're ever on the Upper East Side in NYC, be sure to drop into this gem of a store and buy a little something, so they stick around for 25 more years!
