"Where'd All The Houses Go?".......I find myself answering that question roughly every other day, so hopefully, some of you out there in "Web-Land" will find this, and save both of us some time & trouble....
  Our entire inventory of the houses in our "Vintage Village" collection, was bought out by "Brady's Train Outlet", of Greensburg, Penn....... The houses haven't been transferred to them yet, so give them some time to get everything moved & sorted out, it's going to be quite a job for both of us!  Once the inventory has been moved, I'll post their contact information, should you wish to purchase any houses from them.
  The natural follow up question everyone seems to have is: "When are you going to get more houses?"...I honestly don't know, the logistics behind getting them in, and the minimum ordering quantities from the new suppliers, are a little frightening......The last container I brought in, cost over six thousand dollars, just to clear it through customs, and moved the 50 miles from the docks to our place.....And, technically, the merchandise is "duty free", meaning there's no import taxes attached....good thing, too, if there were, it might have been expensive.....

Well, glad to know where they all are! Somewhat disappointing for us, yet, great for your as a business person! It will be sad if these houses go away, they are such a historic link to the traditions of baby boomers and we are not dead yet!!! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas break! Maria 12/14/2016
When I'm down at the gift show in Atlanta this January, I'm hoping to re-establish a few connections I have in regard to the houses.....Hopefully, we can reach some sort of compromise, as most of the people who do these sort of houses are geared to the "big players" and don't want to bother with our small quantities. Also, China is not as cheap as everyone thinks it is, and the importation costs have skyrocketed the past few years. admin 12/20/2016
