New Projects Coming and New Sofa Listed

We are slowly building up Morristown.  I have started some projects that are in their infancy stage.  The beauty shop, the daycare center, the school room, and the grocery store are all projects that will be in the works the next few months. 

This is the space sleighted for the Beauty shop owned and run by Kara.  This was just a mock up of the room I showed you a couple of months ago.  I want to add wallpaper, flooring, artwork, etc.  The one thing I needed was a hairdryer.  I had put the Gloria furniture beauty shop on my list to buy.  That one has a hair dryer and it would give me another beauty station. 

Well, well, well, as I was searching Ebay for the Gloria set, I came across this beauty (no pun intended).  Actually I came across the one listed below first.  Then saw this one with a "buy it now" for an incredible price and very low shipping.  After hemming and hawwing for about 15 mins, I pushed the button.  It has the hair dryer, the additional beauty station and hair washing station.  AND do you see the massage chair and soaking tub!  This is the MyScene Spa Set.

This is the one I saw first.  I wanted the dolls for the clothes and the man for his body.  This set looks like it has more than the one I bought, aside from the dolls, it really doesn't.  Everything is just positioned differently.  This was a great start price, but no "buy it now" option.  I couldn't take a chance not getting the other one, waiting to see if I could get this one.  There was a third one that was new in the box.  Stilll a great BIN price, but more than mine, and the shipping was more than double.

I have been planning a grocery store.  I have some pieces in my basement.  I wasn't looking for more pieces just yet, but ran across this beauty in my Ebay travels.  It was being sold by a grandma who had bought it for her granddaughter who didn't really play with it.  When compared to the original set, just about all the pieces where there.  I think the table and chairs set she threw in from one of the other sets.  "Buy It Now" price and shipping were incredible! I hesitated as I always do, but as I continued searching I ran across this set again, new in the box for $165.  I couldn't get back to this listing quick enough to push the "Add to Cart" button.  That $30 for this set was looking even better than before.  What do they say?  It's all relative. 

The Etsy Store is practically bare!  So I have to work the next couple of weeks getting some items listed. 

Here is the first one, that I have a feeling won't last long.  The neutrals seem to go fast.

Hmmm.  Maybe Nikki and Kendra didn't go back to work after their lunch at the Japanese restaurant.

Darius can be so tender!  That Nikki is one lucky gal.  Is it me, or is she always in his lap. I'm not hating.  I'm just saying.

There is another set of pillows available with the new sofa, too.

  2. Congratulations on your furniture and accessory find.

    So if I were to price a NRFB My Scene Daily Cafe $199.99 per an Amazon ad I saw, you would not be the first one to bid?

    LOL, just kidding.

    Where are those buyers though? I never find them ;-)

  3. I have a crush on Darius!!! There is a gadget internet thing that I can be notified when a blog has certain content. I am going to see if I can customize it for "Darius" so that I will never miss his appearance! ;-)

  5. Chynadoll - I'm a little nervous about the beauty salon. People are going to expect my dolls to look like yours when they walk out. It's not going to happen. LOL.

    Frannie - Thanks. I am super excited about the grocery store. Can you see my kids running around with the red shopping cart?

  6. Kenya - You are crazy! I must admit I put him in scenes with you in mind. If I had known you before I named this couple, his girlfriend's name would have been Kenya.

  7. D7ana - A better question is "Why do you have a NRFB MyScene Cafe?" Do you ever play with your stuff? Every thing seems to still be in boxes. What that $199 would be a bid and not a BIN? You are right. I would look at it though, and shake my head the whole time. I think there was some divine intervention when I found those items. You don't need to find those buyers. You don't play with dolls anyway.

  8. I have the spa set too. It is in my to be painted pile. That pile is getting bigger and bigger! I like your market. It is different from the one I have. I am trying to decide if I should paint that or just use it. I need to get my scenes started. I'm so lazy sometimes.

  9. Hello from Spain: the complements of the beauty parlor of Kara enchant to me. It did not know them. Very good it buys the set of Spa My Scene. The grocer's I want it. She is precious. Darío is very affectionate with Nikki because still they are boyfriend and girlfriend. When everything marries already changes and is less romanticism, no? The red cushions enchant to me. We follow in contact of blog blog

  10. Ms. Leo - I have decided not to paint this set. As long as it isn't the pink stuff, I think I will learn how to live with it for a while. I will probably paint the blue chairs, but that isn't even a given. The grocery store will be used as is too. I am seeing more pics of people using sets as is, and I'm starting to like it. I have another market too. I will mix them both with a few other store items.

  11. Gabi-mates - Does that mean you like the extra pillows? LOL.

    Marta - So sorry you guys don't have the MySceen sets in Spain. I'm sorry that we don't have them on the regular market any more. They were nice. Some of my married couples are still affectionate, but I tend to show them more with their kids. I have to show them being a little more affectionate, too. Very important for married couples to stay "in touch" with each other.

  12. OK I'm going to say it again I have both these sets and the Gloria set. I have grand plans but am still on the clearing out stage..LOL. I have a couple more of those awesome My Scene sets. I'm glad I do have them because I did not foresee the overuse of pink in the Barbie line..smh

    I can't wait to see the finished set up :O)

  15. Dollz4Moi - I am convinced that you and D7ana have every playset and accessory that was ever made.
    At least you have good intentions of playing with yours. I don't know what D7ana is doing with all the NRFB stuff she has in her possession.
