Remember back when we thought we were lucky if we unwrapped a Barbie Dream House on Christmas morning? That probably ran our parents a few hundred bucks (thanks, mom!). Now imagine unwrapping a dollhouse worth a cool $8.5 million.
Sorry, you probably can't actually afford it, but you can see this absurdly expensive, artisanally crafted miniature castle on display for free. This holiday season, the Astolat Dollhouse Castle will be on display at the Shops at Columbus Circle from November 12th through December 8th. Don't miss the opportunity to take a gander at a tiny, $5000 flatware set or a hundred-year-old book readable by dolls and real people alike. It's the first time ever this mini piece of history will be open for public viewing, so bring the kids. Apologies in advance if this is what they ask Santa for this year.
