We visited lots of nice places and I got a lot of inspiration from all the cottages I saw :) I might show some of the photo's I took later on, but for now I want to tell you about the first - of three! ^^ - dollhouse or miniature shops I visited.
There's even a little Christmas shop:
But my interest went to the one across the street: The Old Bell Pottery.
I had already checked their webside in advance and had seen gorgeous hand decorated miniature china. So I was a little bit surprised at first when I walked into a shop that was filled to the rafters with antiques.
The shop owner told my the miniature selection was upstairs, and after climbing a rather small staircase I was startled again when I saw the room which had display cases from top to floor on every wall, and hardly any space to turn around :)
I could have stayed there for hours and still haven't seen everything. It was a bit overwhelming to be honest ;) In the end I just grabbed a stool and sat before a sort of filing cabinet with lots of drawers, of which I've only opened half ^^
But, I found some very nice miniatures for my Hogsmeade cottage and I will definately visit the webshop again in the future :)
