Tudor miniature shopping ... at Etsy!

I used to sell my artwork through Etsy, so I'm very familiar with the venue, and its good and bad points.  The good points definitely include some amazing artists and artisans who sell their work there.  I just thought I'd share links to a few of the Etsy shops that offer miniatures appropriate for the Tudor or miniature dolls house.

First up is Wightcraft, a miniature furniture builder from Cowes on the Isle of Wight in the UK.  The handcrafted settle, above, is one piece currently available from Wightcraft's shop.

Undancey is the name of Glenda Howell's shop:  she's a New Zealand artisan who makes very reasonably-priced miniature rush mats.  Wouldn't this little beauty (1.5" x 4.5") add a great level of detail to your Tudor bed chamber?

Cottage Miniatures is a UK-based shop which sells handcrafted 1:12 scale miniatures of all sorts, including some beautiful copper and brass ware (great for that Georgian house) or Tudor pieces like a punishment stocks and the lovely bed, pictured above.

And finally, for people looking for those hard-to-find Tudor items in half- or quarter-scale (1:24 or 1:48),  there's an Etsy shop called In Some Small Way, which makes both finished pieces and kits, like the half-scale dresser pictured above.  They have a quarter-scale loom kit which is the cutest thing!
