Albert Howes' Profile
Some years ago I retired and with all this free time I now had, I promised to finish my daughter's doll house which I had started when she was 3. I learnt a great deal from building that house and one of the things was that many items I needed were simply not available to buy.
So I set about making them in my workshop. One thing led to another and I ended up with a Dolls House business sending building components all over the world.
After 10 years, I retired AGAIN, and our remaining stock was put away in boxes in the attic. Last year when we had a general clear out, my daughter found all the old stock and that is mostly what I offer for sale now.
However, it's been very successful in the UK and I have had great pleasure making some new models for metal casting. The dolls house business is not as booming as it was years ago,…
