Dolls' House Shops, Cafes & RestaurantsThis book just makes me want to make stuff and isn't that what it's all about? Aside from the fact that you'll never again put a scrap of cardstock or the top of a pill bottle in the recycling bin again, there's not one project in this book that doesn't make the mini enthusiast want to get sticky fingers. Best of all, unlike a lot of other books, DH Shops doesn't insist on polished perfection. A lot of the vignettes contain objects that show the hand of the maker and it's obvious that Nisbett just really likes to MAKE things. She has some high-end minis in her rooms but she also has lots of box top endtables, framed postcards and walls covered with gift wrap that are within everyone's means. I guarantee you'll find tons of great ideas and lots of inspiration to get you taking a second look at that empty antacid bottle. Highly recommended.

A tremendous amount of excellent photos with a wide variety of ideas. Very useful for anyone who is going to decorate a miniaute shop as a source of inspiration and information.

I am new to the dollhouse hobby, and have purchased several books on decorating. I like this one especially, since it takes you away from the standard decorating of kitchen, bath, living room, etc. I plan to make my next dollhouse a shop - now I just need to decide what type of shop I want!

I liked the book, but I was expecting to learn how to make the miniatures on the front. It's basically a collection of photographs of shops with a few instructions.

The 'Dolls House , Shops, Cafes & Restaurants' book contains a treasure chest of inspirational ideas for the miniature enthusiast who is looking to expand their creative interests.

The dollshouse shops is very detailed w/ lots of ideas for your own dollshouse shop. I especially liked the different venues to show that you aren't limited in the structure you use. Like any other shop the window displays bring in customers!

This book is wonderful! It has given me so many ideas that I cannot wait to implement.It has so many things that you don't realize. I never thought about a boutique. And this book has many different ideas.It simply brings my imagination to life!

This book has many photos of cute ideas. It was good for inspiration but not much else.
