A little background.
When The Fabulous Farmhouse store first opened in 2007, all of the miniatures I listed for sale were available to view and purchase even while out of stock. After a few months of me being crazy, I switched the listings and photos to still being viewable but not available for purchase until they were back in stock. Even with this setting in place, I still lost my ability to create anything new because I was constantly restocking with no time left for little else. Today, once miniatures are sold out the listing is not available to view. While I realize I may not catch the eye of a possible new miniatures customer, this setting allows me to continue to love doing what I do.
The Fabulous Farmhouse has certainly gone through changes in the past years, for example, I now work full time outside of my home and can create miniatures when I'm not at work. Today I love doing it because I have balance and time with the great people in my life. I also traded my dream of a fabulous farmhouse and live in a fabulous lakeside cottage. Seeing Lake Huron every day reminds me of The San Francisco Bay I grew up with. Should I change the name of the store? Nah.
The best way to own some of my miniature creations is to keep checking back in the store, check my facebook page for new listings, or simply email me with what you're looking for so that I can get it restocked or created sooner. I do keep a running list of requests and I'll gladly add your request! Waiting time varies, but I always strive for quality not quantity. Creating miniatures takes a bit of time, and thank you in advance for your patience with the process!
I make miniatures because I love to. I'm not Walmart by any means, but I do offer exceptionally reasonable prices. I'm not making miniatures to get rich and famous, I do it because I love sharing with you, and I love the kind people and emails I receive from satisfied miniature enthusiasts and friends.
Be sure to check out the Featured Items (recently restocked items in the store) often as these change weekly.
