For The Child In All Of Us

Hey There!................
Welcome to Not Too Shabby By Brandi

The imagination cannot be held in one's hand. It cannot be bought or sold and it is unique to each one of us. It develops in childhood and often includes places. things. and whens. As parents, sometimes we provide our children with dollhouses so they can playfully "act out" their imaginations. Why should that stop just because we "grew up"?
One Christmas my mother presented me with my first dollhouse. She had been working on my beloved dollhouse kit for weeks behind closed doors, all the while enjoying all the fun of assembling and decorating it for me. Fast forward 20 years and there I was. I had my own little girl and a hankering to keep the tradition alive. I stepped into the role of the secret dollhouse builder and finally understood that there's so much more to a dollhouse than rearranging furniture.
The love of miniatures has been with us for centuries, evolving over time and with new imaginations reshaping it everyday. The dollhouses of yesteryear have become cherished pieces yet their purposes have never changed! The technology that builds them has changed and our goal here at Not Too Shabby Miniatures is to help maintain the tradition of miniaturism with the utmost quality, durability, attention to detail and skill it demands while keeping an eye on the future.
Remember that there is a powerful magic that is summoned when a "grown up" looks through a tiny window or door. This magic conjures the playful child in us and takes us back to a place that feels wonderfully soothing and familiar. It takes us back to our childhood selves and that is priceless.
................Play Lots..............Brandi


***Raised the "old-fashioned" way, I was taught at a very young age some basic skills such as sewing and various types of needlework. I really loved the traditional skills the women of my family passed on to me but I wanted more. I wanted to build stuff. Lots of stuff! And build I did! Whether I was soldering copper pipe or crocheting a pineapple doily pattern, I was happy and finally ready to go after my biggest dream of all....to become a miniaturist!***

I want to know what projects YOU are doing! Come hang out with me and other awesome miniature enthusiasts in my Facebook Group: It's a ton of fun and You'll get a chance to see some of the messes I get myself into 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    I am the proud mother of two amazing adult kids. I enjoy everything outdoors and I'm guilty of spoiling my fur-babies. I've always played with dollhouses and started making minis because I love the challenge and fun in making them look realistic. ❤

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Most of my minis have been protected with varnish therefore, they may by gently wiped with clean water only. If a fabric needs cleaning: use a mild detergent, rinse with plenty of clean water and allow to air dry. I do wash all my fabrics prior to sewing however I cannot guarantee fabric bleed.

Custom and personalized orders

I am not currently accepting custom orders at this time.

Sizing details

Unless otherwise noted, all my miniatures are 1:12 scale. This scale is typical for hobby dollhouse enthusiasts. It means something that measures one inch actually represents something 1 foot long. For example, a 3 foot long table would be 3 inches long in miniature. Please contact me if you have unusual measurements you need help with.

When purchasing apparel, please be thoughtful about choosing the correct size. Please see my return policy and custom/ personalized orders policies.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I do not currently gift wrap my products at this time.

Wholesale availability

I do not currently accept wholesale offers at this time.

Shipping Method Choices

I ship using USPS. I use first class, priority and priority express. I highly encourage you to chose priority delivery because it protects your miniatures by providing tracking numbers and insurance to cover a range of unfortunate shipping incidents.

I am in NO WAY responsible for incorrect shipping addresses submitted to Etsy.

If first class mail is chosen at checkout, I cannot guarantee the location, timeliness of arrival or condition of your purchase upon delivery. As a result, I'm sorry but I cannot offer refunds for lost shipments or delivery damaged products.

**Please note that the shipping process does not begin until payments have been received**

Shipping Multiple Purchases

If more than one product is being purchased and CAN be combined in the same shipping container, I will happily refund the difference in shipping if recalculation is needed. If I do not send a refund, please contact me within 45 days of purchase and let me know so that I may resolve that immediately.

If items cannot be combined, Shipping refunds will not be issued. For example, if a miniature item is purchased with a full sized item (such as a novelty mug), they CANNOT be combined in the same shipping container.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

Disappointed with your order? PLEASE tell me right away. I strive to make your experience with my shop A#1 from the beginning and for years to come. We can work through issues together. No problem!

Please contact me here on ETSY or at Brandi@nottooshabbyminiatures.com so that I can fully understand if or why you were unsatisfied with your order. I check my messages many times everyday, including weekends, and will get back to you ASAP.

I value my customer service and want every one of my customers to be completely satisfied with my shop's performance, but please be considerate. I want to help in any way I can.

Fragile Orders and Shipping Costs

I do not offer first class shipping on all my products due to fragility issues and/or purchase values.

For My Canadian Neighbors

Canadian customers: Once in customs, my packages leave the United States Postal System, therefore if there is any issue with finding your package from that point forward, please contact your local post office in Canada.

Also, please note that although my shipping policies reflect first class mail options for purchases being delivered inside the United States, they do not apply to International shipments. I have more options and abilities to help find a lost package using priority and priority express international shipping so I sincerely apologize for not offering this to my many beloved friends in the north.
