Kits for 1:24, 1:48 and 1:144 from "A Sheila's Shed"

I want to tell you about a range of small scale laser cut kits, and other mini items, available online from an Australian supplier, Virginia of "A Sheila's Shed". This "Grandma's bed" is an example that's available in kit form in 1:24, 1:48 and 1:144 - it's so cute, don't you think? She also has some 1:144 structure kits, this is one example


These little kits are tiny 'flat packs' so the cost of postage anywhere in the world is small, and the prices of all the kits are very reasonable.

Virginia also has a selection of wooden wheels ranging from 10 mm to 100 mm perfect for carts, etc, as well as 2-D laser cut furniture legs in various designs. A range of architectural features are to come.

I have purchased some larger scale pieces from Virginia in the past, she's a delight to deal with so check out her website, http://www.asheilasshed.com.au/, and if you have any questions send her an email, she'll look after you very well.

Photo credit: I took some photos of Virginia's stall at the Sydney show in May but they are among the casualties of my memory card 'melt down' so all these photos are from Virginia's website.

Thanks for sharing that. I also want to make a 1:144 scale house. I think the bed is wonderful.

Thank you again, Norma for the intro. I am really thinking may try 1:24 because of space issue. Still have to finish 3 more houses after the tribal one so I guess I am in no hurry.

I found a dollhouse maker in Indonesia. One of these days, I may just make a trip there to see it.

Thanks for the link, Norma.
Laser cuts are excellent for the smaller scales, aren't they?
I'm tempted to try some . . .

Thanks for the alert: is a fascinating idea to work on a house so small... A temptation!

So cute! I enjoyed my visit to her site! I've bookmarked it even though I do well to get anything accomplished in 1:12th scale! By the way, I got you some Michael's hutches today and will get them in the mail to you this coming week. Back to work with me tomorrow and Saturday.

I recently saw Virginia's kits at the Miniature Extravaganza in Hobart. They were just gorgeous and so tiny.
