The underappreciated art form of miniatures appears larger than life at this new retail store, gallery, and exhibition space. With a passion for miniatures since childhood, Brooklyn-born artist Darren Thomas Scala amazes with his collection of artisan dollhouses and top-quality collectibles, catering to both the lifelong miniature enthusiast and the newly interested hobbyist. Workshops, events, and open studio hours led by Scala and nationally known miniature artisans provide an opportunity to learn the art of building scale miniatures. You can also shop for tiny items to adorn your dollhouses—from pocket-sized models of animal trophy heads to a vintage Radio Flyer sled. In the gallery, you’ll find a rotating exhibition of the most intricately exquisite miniature work from around the country.
