The Junk Lady was driving to one of her usual Berry Hill haunts, the Baja Burrito, when she decided to stop in at the Miniature Cottage she’d passed by so many times. It is located on East Iris Drive just off of Thompson Lane in Berry Hill. If you have a doll house or are thinking of assembling or furnishing a dollhouse you need to stop by.

The cottage is very small with a series of small rooms filled floor to ceiling with unique wooden doll houses, shadow boxes with vignettes of all different types of rooms, and more furniture and accessories than can be imagined. Miniature Cottage has been in business almost 40 years under owner Reneé Derra. It’s a small world after all!

Vintage 1970’s Read A Long Book & Records

Remember the small portable record players, one step up from the plastic Fisher Price ones? Found one the other day. It’s an Emerson and it previous owner had placed puffy stickers on the inside lid. Along with it came a great collection of Disney and Little Golden Book Read Along books and records. It’s fun to hear the Charlie Brown & Snoopy, Scooby Doo, Thumbelina, Poky Little Puppy, and Jungle Book stories as you read along – or it would be if it had a needle and worked properly and the records were flat. The books, however, work just fine.
