Modern Kitchens for $30-$60



I picked up this modern kitchen on ebay; although it feels a little 50's modern more than contemporary modern. I was pleasantly surprised to see how much stuff came with it. The fridge was so full the doors had a hard time staying closed. Once I took the bins out, the doors stay closed better. The six plastic bins with food in them have removable lids, I will be using those elsewhere. I'm going to scrape off the flower decals on the fridge, but other than that I'm pretty happy with this find.

There are 9 left at $33.99 + $18.50 shipping from China. If link above doesn't work search "modern dollhouse kitchen" or check seller's store: my_simple.

Most of the contents are glued in place (some came off really easy, still working on other pieces). The 6 bins are filled with 1 stuffed cooked chicken, 2 fish, 4 sausage links/meat product, cabbage, 3 leeks, 6 wooden red apples & 4 pears, 11 green/yellow/red peppers. The fridge has 2 glasses and carafe of OJ, pitcher of milk, carafe w/ handle of carrot juice (all made of clear glass), brown glass double handle pitcher, 2 cans of Coke & Tab, 4 bottles of beer, 3 clear bottles of water labeled Soda, 4 eggs, 3 cups of noodles, 3 bowls of noodles, a smaller wood apple, 2 large croissants or maybe yams.

And of course, right after I buy the kitchen above, this cute stainless steel version from Town Square Miniatures pops up on scampers2000 store (starting bid $48). I had seen the fridge before but not the sink and stove. After a quick search I found a site that sells the same set and also a white version, but I like the stainless better (3 piece set for $58.74).

At this price range though, you should check out Dolls House Emporium. The kitchen island unit on the right is now on sale for $29.99 (no fridge though). I have this one and love it as well, but it currently resides in a box in the garage.

Thanks for all of the links! I make miniature foods, and I'm itchin' to get an entire kitchen set up before too long. (Horrible rhyme was unintentional, I swear.)

Thanks Pandora. For the price, I was really surprised the kitchen was so packed. That reminds me, I forgot to list everything in it. Thanks for the link to your blog. Small stuff is the coolest.

Hi Jean, you are most welcome. I was just looking at your Cottage Gallery & Gift Shop pictures and wow, I love your paintings. I don't know how you get all of those incredible miniatures on the shelves without knocking them over. Just beautiful.

Meli, thanks. Your miniature booties are so cute! I love your Brookwood!

My daughter is into dollhouses too. I bet, she'd be ecstatic if she'll have a kitchen like that for her doll house. According to her, her doll house needs major kitchen renovation. LOL!
