Itty bitty bake shop.

I love the "Grace" collection from American Girl, but there's no way in hell I'm buying the full size doll, bake shop, and bistro set- that's about $1000 with shipping! I found an adorable and inexpensive alternative- a little room in a box kit:



It's just about the right size for the mini Grace doll I have (actually she might barely fit, but that's okay...)...once it's built. I just ordered it and it should be here Thursday. I might build it this weekend.

There's a whole line of these room kits, some are simple like this, others are very elaborate. I already have an ornament kit to work on- an itsy bitsy dollhouse in a glass globe. This is what it will look like:




I haven't built anything like these in ages. It should be fun!

I used to do that...but I can't remember from whom I ordered the kits. Where did you order from? and were they very expensive?

Amazon. Prices vary depending on where they get them from. Some sellers are in the U.S. (they're imported from China), and if they have them in stock, they're reasonable. I paid $20 for the bakery kit and $35 for the ornament.

The more elaborate kits, like the 3 story dollhouse, cost about $150.
