Kaleidoscope House minis on sale for 3 days only!

1. Mark your calendar for Oct 8-10.
2. Sign up for Fab.com
3. Buy original, unopened Kaleidoscope House furniture sets and accessories before they are gone.

Earlier this year I blogged about this huge lot of KH sets. The unopened items have been sitting in boxes on pallets in a warehouse for years. The order was never paid for so the entire lot went up for auction. One of my readers bought the lot and it will be for sale on Fab.com Oct 8-10! Most items will be under $20, and Fab.com expects to sell out by the end of 3 days. If you want to add modern minatures or families to your existing homes, or buy some extras to keep in mint condition in the box, this opportunity will never happen again, and never at these prices.

I want to share with you some background on who is making this cool opportunity happen. Andrew is a really nice, busy dad of two and is incredibly excited to be able to bring this lost find to the public. He works at a preschool as an admissions director. He adopted his son from birth who has "special needs" and who loved dollhouses from the get go. Andrew was given a Kaleidoscope House as a used gift for his son. His son broke a piece so Andrew brought it to the preschool and the kids broke more pieces. He was about to toss it in the trash when he looked up the history and fell in love with it all the more. He sold it on ebay broken for $700 and split it with his surprised friend who had given them the house. His son is now 12 and Andrew also has a 2 year old daughter (which is his son's niece....the baby of Andrew's son's 16 year old half brother and his 14 year old girlfriend...kind of confusing, but has given Andrew a loving family. We both have daughters the same age, so we've shared some great stories). Andrew was looking to buy another Kaleidoscope House again when he came across my article on the auction. He really felt he could take a risk and do this to hopefully make enough money to pay for a wonderful vacation for his kids. It's not often that you know who the seller is; I am excited to buy some mint condition Kaleidoscope House miniatures for my kids and for my personal collection at great prices and it warms my heart to help contribute to a special vacation for Andrew's family.

Sign up on Fab.com and save the dates October 8-10, if you don't want to miss out on this great opportunity.

  2. Hey Tam toum,
    I hadn't noticed before, but yes, at the moment US addresses only. I'm putting in an email to see if they will have international shipping set up by the sale date in October. I saw this on their site:

    "Fab.com ships to all 50 U.S. states. Sorry, no PO Boxes. We're working on adding international shipping options."

    If they are not selling internationally, email me with what you want, and I might be able to buy it and ship it to you. I'll post again when the pre-sale information is up on the site. :D
