Well this just about rolls everything I adore into one perfect little package– miniature crafts, the golden age of travel and tiny fairy doors to another world. Marisa and David of Queanbeyan, Australia make dollhouses out of beautiful old suitcases they come across. They love to make old things new again and combine David’s skills in carpentry with Marisa’s love of miniatures to make their unique up-cycled suitcase dollhouses. You can imagine their workshop is a little bit like stepping into Narnia’s wardrobe…
And they don’t just stop at suitcases. David and Marisa also repurpose old cigar boxes and even create dioramas inside impossibly tiny matchboxes!
Every single piece they make is utterly unique– and for sale! Each piece is made from a sourced suitcase or wooden box and decorated to suit its individual personality. They can make custom dollhouses and even turn your old unused suitcases into dollhouses.
