Meet The Team

Who are the faces behind Magpies-Miniatures?

Mandy is the business owner, founder, and holds great knowledge in all things miniature. Mandy began trading dolls house miniatures in 2006, and has been behind the scenes from the very beginning. As a team, Mandy and her husband, Jon are responsible for this site you're now visiting. 

Jon has been the quietest member of the team, always busy in his workshop- think Father Christmas, but less mince pies. Jon's talents in computer programming, databases and the fact he's extremely artistic and fantastic at any craft he sets his mind to means he is an incredibly valuable member of the Magpies-Miniatures team.

Niccy is a daughter of Mandy and Jon, and began working for Magpies-Miniatures in 2012. Niccy went to Art College, and this is where her passion lies. Niccy will be the one answering your emails, picking and packing your orders, keeping the website updated and looking fresh, stock photography, social media, and creating our handmade lines. 

All of us have something different to give to the business, which is why we work so well together as a team, in keeping our business running smoothly, and bringing you the service you'd expect as a customer, which has so many of you returning.


About the business

Magpies-Miniatures began as a venture on a popular online auction site, and as business and demand grew, so did the levels of stock we housed, and so our own website was the only way forward for us. Now we are up and running here, and have been since 2008, our passion, knowledge and focus has grown into the company you see today. We strive for 100% customer satisfaction, and to keep you coming back to complete your projects. If there's anything you're uncertain about, please feel free to ask. Combined we have a vast knowledge in several areas, and are in touch with many wonderful and knowledgeable people, so if we don't know the answer we can seek it out for you!

We stock dolls' house miniatures from a host of suppliers- including heirloom-quality Jia Yi Miniatures, Bespaq, wallpapers from Jackson's, and furniture and accessories from Streets Ahead, Warwick Miniatures, plus fabulously impressive self-build (DIY) kits from McQueenies, and Phoenix Models. If you are looking for something specific and are struggling to find it, again please get in touch and we can have a scout around our suppliers to find what you are looking for. We will always go the extra mile for each and every one of our customers.

We hope you enjoy looking around our website
