Do YOU remember the early days of The Dolls House Emporium?

10 April 2013

We know that a lot of our customers have been with us a long time and remember our humble beginnings in a basement in Derbyshire but did you know that we used the have Open Days?

As we didn’t have a shop premises, customers were invited to come and have a look at the dolls’ houses and accessories in special open days a couple of times a year.

Luckily this didn’t last long and we soon had a shop and showroom at the site in Park Hall. Now you can come and visit us at either of our two shops in Ripley and at Houghton Hall in Carlisle and have all your miniature cravings catered for in one go.

Do you have any early memories of The Dolls House Emporium? Perhaps you came along to one of those early open days, tell us about your earliest experiences of dolls houses and accessories and how you came to know about us, we’d love to hear your stories!

Drop us a line at and we can share your memories online!
