Dolls' house returned to owner after house sale mix-up

20 June 2014

A woman whose possessions went into storage when she was ill in hospital and got sold off by accident has been reunited with one of her favourite heirlooms – her beloved dolls’ house.

Daisy Phillips beat late stage cancer but found out about the error with her worldly goods only after being discharged from hospital.

Her daughter Olivia told KGW, in Portland, Oregon, “I started crying, I couldn’t control myself, and we just held each other.

“She has cancer and that’s a really scary thing and these are important family things that one day I wanted to give to my children."

The online newspaper covered Daisy’s plight as she tried to track down her missing heirlooms.

Then she got word that someone had located her special dolls'  house, which had been inside the storage unit.

She had to buy the dollhouse back, at a cost of $500, but it she had it back and that's all that mattered.
