Power Lunch for Competition Winners

September 5th, 2008

The Dolls House Emporium was very happy to welcome three of its latest winners who were attending a ‘’power lunch’’ and enjoyed  a guided tour of the head office at Ripley, Derbyshire on Thursday 14th August.

The three winners were:

15 year old Colette Bane from Bamber Bridge, Preston, who won a staggering £1000 gift voucher to spend at The Dolls House Emporium which she won for the online Rainbow Prince Competition,

Mrs S Stacey from Southport, who won £100 worth of vouchers to spend at The Dolls House Emporium for her winning entry in the internet Story Writing Competition,


Mrs Longmire of Tiverton, Devon, who won £500 worth of vouchers to spend at The Dolls House Emporium for her work in the Master Miniaturist Competition.



All the winners were treated to an hour long tour of the ‘inner workings’ of The Dolls House Emporium as they were taken through the premises including those areas not normally seen by the general public such as the despatch warehouse and house building areas.

All the winners and their guests then had a ‘’power lunch’’ with the company’s Managing Director, Jackie Lee and the Sales and Marketing Director, Ashley Gatehouse, in the board room and the chance to talk to the team who run their favourite dolls’ house supplier.

A good lunch was followed by a tour of The Dolls House Emporium’s own shop, providing a great opportunity for the competition winners to eye up their next purchase, although Colette Bane with her fabulous £1000 to spend may have had so much choice she was overwhelmed!

All the guests enjoyed the day out and it was a wonderful opportunity for us to speak to some of our most avid enthusiasts. Don’t forget to keep your eyes out for the next competition!

  1. Around what month can we expect the next competiton?

  2. The lunch for the competition winners was excellent – a really great day!!! The shop had lots to choose from and I managed to spend most of my £1000 prize money. A big thank you to all the staff involved.

    Congratulations to all the winners, particularly Colette as it’s so good to have a young enthusiast
    entering your competitions!

    Mrs Longmire of Tiverton is close enough to explore The Dolls House Shop on the Barbican in Plymouth. It’s a beautiful shop in the very quaint “House That Jack Built”, with an amazing
    display of miniatures and huge quantities of Dolls House Emporium goods. Quite my favourite
    shop in the West Country, where I am always given a very warm welcome and good service.

    I can’t wait for your next competition, they are so well thought out, and such fun to enter!

    Keep up the good work!
