Every year I will tell my other half that I don’t want any Lilliput lane cottages anymore. I have enough Lilliput Lane cottages in my collection and have no place to display them but… he still purchase them for me. Thank you for being able to read my actual thoughts hehehe. He normally purchased them via eBay and get them to be sent to our daughter’s house in the UK as the postage within UK is free. If you intend to purchase them from the shop… be prepared to pay a very premium price as I think the price has gone up since the demise of the founder Dave Tate in January 2017 after a nine-year battle with cancer. So my advice is.. get them from eBay.
Let’s look at two of my collections..
Make A Wish.
It is from The British Collection and was introduced by Lilliput lane in 1988 and is now retired. This lovely little wishing well is truly amazing. It measures approximately 2.3″ H, 2″ L, 2″ W. You can find this type of fancy well head in a formal gardens or parks.
Gulliver’s Wishing Well
It is from Visitors Centre Special collections. It was introduced in 2003 was retired in 2009. Measures approximately 7.4cm x 5.6cm x 5.4cm. Gulliver’s Wishing Well was located on the original company site at Skirsgill, Penrith, Cumbria. A lot of Visitor Centre tourist has had their photo taken at the well and Lilliput Lane finally decided to issue a memento for those dedicated collectors.
Okay.. that’s all that I have time for today. See you again next time.
