Do you know this worldwide shop, where artists around the world produce all kinds of handmade things so that you can buy unique objects? Then it’s about time you do! Not only does Etsy sell dollhouse miniatures, but anything you can imagine: embroidery, special postcards, handbags, hats, clothing, paintings, sculptures, you name it, they have it!
In this new category, I am going to add all my favorite miniature artists from around the world, but more specifically the US, on my website and I hope you will like them as much as I do!
So many adorable, cute little things to get and I WANT THEM, not just desire them haha. (well, in my dreams and when I win the lottery 🙂 ).
Let’s begin with miniature books, there’s a lot of great artists on Etsy who specialized in little books for sure.
Sorted for you by shop:
– children’s books (fairy-tales)
– the Kamasutra (hihi)
– books on a wooden stand
More info :
– available in 5(!) languages.
– shipped worldwide from the US
– seem to have a minimum of about 400 pages, which is a lot!
Sizes: may vary, so check them if they would be suited for your dollhouse, but I think they are on a scale of 1:12.
Prices: from around 10$ to 20$.
Where to find them: MinibooksUSA
2.LittleTHINGS of interest.

– Works with themes and stacks of books, so not able to be opened separately and not readable
– perfect for lying flat, not meant to be put upright or in a bookshelf, would look perfect on a chair for example!

Sizes: 1:12 scale, check the sizes per stack off books
Where to find them: DaintylittleDetails
-This shop sells more than just miniature books, but they are surely worth mentioning separately. (not that the other miniatures are worth mentioning, like their rugs, signs, doors, and many more).

Last shop (for today), but surely not the least.
– Apart from miniature books, she also makes miniature furniture, accessories, food and drink, and vintage miniatures
– A smaller shop since 2018 on Etsy, but has some particular miniatures in the theme ‘books’, that I wanted to mention.
– Look at these 2 books(leather journal/diary, with metal lock and key set). Have you ever seen anything like it? I haven’t!
– and then if you think you can’t get more surprises, then there is this ‘Miniature Postcard Photo Album’ and ‘Miniature World Landmark Postcards ‘. I will have you judge yourself, let me know what you think! (I wish I could buy it all haha) .
– made of paper, you can open them, pages are blank
– Get them before they are out of stock, these are custom orders!
– made for adult collections, like most in the custom-made miniature world (sorry)
Sizes: 1:12th scale
Where to find them: FrancesLanePark. (I hope she will make more books in the future )
There are lots more miniature books on Etsy, like thousands of them, but some of these five are specialized in them. It takes some research, but I will find out more in the next article soon. I hope to find more stores that are specifically about small books. So you can have oversight of specific things that you would be looking for.
The database on Etsy is so huge that otherwise, it would take you ages to find them, so I am trying to link them straight to what you are looking for on my website, category per category. Miniature books, chairs, tables, beds, clothes, cutlery, etc, etc, just to make it easier for you to find!
Just one more thing: I have made a miniature book myself and recorded a video of it. Please check it out below and “like” it, and subscribe to my Youtube channel, thanks!
If you like what I am trying to do here for you, please leave a comment below! Or would you like me to write about anything specific, feel free to ask, I would sure want to spend some time doing the research for you!
You can now also join my newest Facebook group. We are a happy bunch of miniatures enthusiasts!
I wish you happy crafting!
