Sharing dates of Fairs


If you click on one of the months above it will show a list of fairs usually held that month.PLEASE, PLEASE let me know of any fair you know about and I'll add it to the list.
I apologise for not making any attempt to keep it current this is just an attempt to have a list of as many dolls house shows that I can find. Even if you see a show with an old date you can just google the name of the show to find out the date of the next one.

It would be great if you'd let me know of any I can add to the list.

Museum of Childhood, Edinburgh

The Museum of Childhood in Edinburgh is slap-bang in tourist land - on the Royal Mile.  If you ever get a chance to visit Edinburgh do try and pop in to see this while you are doing the other touristy things.

their lovely hanging sign seems to have disappeared


It is free entry.  Of course it would be kind to pop some money in their box as you leave but no-one pesters you to do so.  They will even let you take photos as long as you don't use flash.  

I confess to not being greatly interested in toys but, if you are, this is the place for you.  Five floors just crammed with intriguing bits and bats.  In the case of bats - literally.  

This sort of thing is always an odd experience when you reach my age as you suddenly find your childhood (and even my children's childhood!) in a museum.

They are still worth a visit if your passion is only dollshouses.  They have a handful of interesting ones.

Not especially 'well done' ones but interesting as they were of their time

great fireplace on this one

The following one was just described as unknown American.  I did suggest it could be worth finding out because if it were a Bliss or Gottschalk it could be worth a lot of money.  they politely said they weren't interested in the value of their items they just collected them.


do you know what this is?

My absolute favourite was the truly marvellous butchers shop
