Collector Or Curious: Treasures @ Doll House Mini Markets
I loved my dolls when I was a child - a name for each and a different personality created from the mind of a child. Whether you had life-size dolls, miniature dolls or dolls that you could cuddle, these were the little ones that created a family bond between the owner and doll. Some people love dolls so much that over the years they have become collectors.
On Sunday 18th July 2021, you will not want to miss the Mini Market Doll House: Miniatures Market at Como House and Garden in South Yarra where ten local miniaturist suppliers will be selling all sorts of trinkets and wares. Whether you are a collector or curious as to what the fuss is about, this may be the place you take home your first-ever mini treasure.

The event is brought to you by the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) and entry is a gold coin at the door. Although this event coincides with Doll House: Miniature World of Wonder Exhibition, tickets to that event are sold separately.
The Mini Market commences at 10.00 am and doors close at 3.00pm AEST. If starting a new hobby or collection, the day will be a perfect opportunity for you to peruse a selection of miniature creations, purchase crafting supplies and talk to professions about all things miniature.
