People Who Collect Tin Doll Houses

A few weeks ago I posted pictures of the old tin doll house we found in Madeline's attic.  Last night I was flipping through the February issue of "Martha Stewart Living" and found this:

What a fun collection!  I had to google them to learn more and learned they have a shop called "Something's Hiding in Here" in Philadelphia.  Here's a link to another photo of their houses.  And here's where you can read more about them.  I think they are pretty cool!


  1. Thanks for sharing this. I have one of these(the green roof)and would love to read the article. I'll have to pick up the magazine when I'm out today.

  2. Wow, what a fabulous collection! She says, "When I see two things alike, I want to bring them together." Funny, I have the same problem. :-)

  3. hi there! so fun to see some doll house love!
