As a long term supporter of Waipuna Hospice, EVES is proud to be a key sponsor of their latest donation drive - the dollhouse appeal. The dollhouse appeal is a four week auction campaign for the Rose Cottage, a 1950s inspired dollhouse whose sale proceeds will go directly to the Waipuna Hospice, to support the work they do in our community. At only 72cm tall and 50cm wide, the Rose Cottage dollhouse took three years to build and the detail in this mini abode is nothing short of amazing.
Oozing character and warmth with its charming weatherboard exterior, the ground floor features a combined kitchen/dining room, with spacious larder and stove. A separate lounge has a large open fireplace with French doors that open out to the garden and upstairs you will find the spacious master suite, complete with en-suite bathroom.
Every item was handcrafted, from the kauri/rimu wooden flooring with paua inlay, to the furniture and pantry items. The house is electrified with a 12 volt wiring system. There’s a battery powered grandfather clock and you can even pop your own photos into the photo frames on the wall. You can view this work of art in person at our EVES Bethlehem office, located in Bethlehem Town Centre.
The auction for the dollhouse appeal is being hosted online using Galabid and will commence on 14th October, closing on 11th November. Bids can be made at any time during this four week period. Any unsuccessful bidders will be given the opportunity to make a donation to the dollhouse appeal, once the auction has closed. This is a fantastic cause to get behind, and EVES Realty will match donations dollar for dollar up to the highest bid and total donation raised for this campaign*.
