Miss Adelina, our flamingo
[by Aristocratic Attic]
introduces The Queen Patricia’s Boutique...
Adelina is a very special purchase from Tom Bishop’s
2019 Chicago International,
“The World’s Largest & Finest Miniature Show.”
She’ll exit the 2nd floor grand foyer to the left via one of two pair of Pollinade French double doors. [a Bespaq Design by Majestic Mansions, from Manhattan Dollhouse, NY]
This space is 15 inches wide and 22 inches deep.
Beginning at the top, the plastered ceiling peaks out from behind a gold-colored scene of angels blowing their trumpets.
This feature was made from a household doily that mom came upon.
The space is lit with three ceiling chandeliers and two wall sconces
[from Minimum World] that reflect within a mirror [Michaels]
centered on the back wall behind the shop’s counters.

The walls are papered with a print by Itsy Bitsy Mini called Victorian Cream. [Lynlott Miniatures, Pittsburgh, PA]
Ecru lace curtains provide warmth.
The floors are again of our own design and made from hand-laid walnut and oak stained wood strips with additional varnishing.

Our boutique attendant is a doll made by Paola Ragonesi.
[of Paola & Sara Miniature, Falconara Marittima, AN Italy]
She oversees a customer sampling the hats and fur stoles of an exquisite collection adorning mannequins by Annette Shaw.

A carousel from the Platinum Collection by Town Square Miniatures
[purchased through Hobby Builders Supply, Atlanta, GA] offers books.
Jewelry, art, flowers, candles, handbags, perfumes, doll babies,
and home décor comprise the remaining items for sale.
A favorite customized piece is our lady case fashioned from
a Christmas Tree ornament. She is wearing a hat and holding a rose,
both for sale.
Her two-shelves are filled with hand-made, monogrammed gift
bags and tissue papers to commemorate QP Boutique purchases.
From vintage to modern, collectibles from 1918 through 2018 can be found!
