History in the Making

September 23rd, 2008

Almost 30 years ago, Jackie Lee and her then partner Adam Purser, got a crazy idea to set up a business making and selling dolls house kits. Now about to celebrate its 30th Anniversary in 2009, The Dolls House Emporium has gone from strength to strength including developing some of the most recognisable dolls houses in the world, such as the Classical which appeared in the first catalogues back in 1985 and is still one of the leading sellers today.

As you’ll see from the images, the catalogue was produced to come out in March, unlike today’s run of September to August and the front cover wasn’t colour, in fact we didn’t get a full colour cover until 1987!

These days, The Dolls House Emporium is widely regarded as the world’s leading supplier of dolls’ houses and miniatures, a reputation won by it’s award-winning customer service and excellent website and continued by the exclusive designs and excellent quality of the products.

We’re all looking forward to celebrating our anniversary next year and to the surprises that we have in store for all our friends and colleagues. We hope you’ll still be along for the ride.
