Ron’s Miniature Shop went viral maybe 7 months ago now, with no online presence whatsoever. But with less and less shops like this existing, word of mouth gets them all the advertisement they need.
Ron’s Miniature Shop has been a staple of Orlando since 1989 and is still going strong.
I was in Lakeland for work and noticed that Ron’s Miniature Shop was going to be almost precisely on my way home to Jacksonville, so of course I had to stop by. And I wasn’t disappointed.
From artisan/collectible to mass produced, you can find absolutely everything you need for your 1:12, 1:24 or 1:48 dollhouses and fairy gardens. Furniture for every room – wood, plaster, etc, plastic and porcelain dolls, dollhouse kits and finishings, and every accessory you can imagine.
There’s a workshop in the back where you can see the staff working on various mini projects, and speaking of the staff, they’re beyond helpful and kind.
I got a couple things for photos, and a couple things I just couldn’t resist, and managed to make it out spending only about $45. Trust me, it could have been a lot worse. But you truly can find items that fit any budget, Accessories I picked up to look at ranged from $2 to $65.
They even have tiny mugs with names on them! I got one for my sister – currently on sale for $2.
