Two Story Moritz Gottschalk Dollhouse from Germany...


I won this lovely house via ebay Germany for my daughter while I was in WA. The seller sent it two weeks after the sale date and late, after I asked for tracking info. Then to top it off, he sent it poorly packaged-_-; in only the original box it came with. I figured he would use a sturdier box or at least cover the outside of it with thicker cardboard-_-; I was devastated when it finally arrived to me after a month and 3 weeks since the auction ended. Just look at the pics below!

Ebay auction photo not mine above, before it was mailed out, showing original box.
The dollhouse above removed from all the bubble wrap and newspapers.The roof on the house caved in and parts of the 2nd floor walls cracked in several places, including parts of the roof. Many of the inside parts like windows, curtains, door, etc. were all off the house and in pieces!


Above you can see more detailed damage. I emailed the seller and sent him all the pics I took of the damage. I had to file with ebay because the house took so long to arrive and I honestly wasn't sure it was coming. After, the initial anger of seeing this house in ruins, I took all loose parts off and started to take out all the wiring. I figured it will be a "keep me busy" project while my family was away...So, I decided to keep the house and fix her up. I just hope my daughter is okay with it. I showed her the damage and told her I was gonna see what I could do to fix it up....

I have yet to hear back from the seller, I at least want partial refund, cause it was not packed properly? what do you think?? - ggsdolls

Updated: I worked on it all thru the early evening...LOL. Yup, just couldn't stop! Here's what it looks like so far...
