Guess Who's Selling The 1:12 Miele Appliances?

We got a Pottery Barn Kids catalogue in the mail today and they feature the miniature Miele appliances with their dollhouse collection. They are overpriced--big surprise there! For $60 you get the 1:12 modern dishwasher, microwave, stove, washing machine and vacuum. Unfortunately, they do not offer the cabinets or sink.

UPDATE 10/31/08
The lovely Doris N. just informed that Pottery Barn Kids has cancelled the Miele items because the supplier could not deliver. ARGH! Sorry ya'll.

UPDATE 11/13/08
Jill C. informed me that the Miele kitchen is available at Vacuums24x7 for $70, but
with the promo code "save10" everyone can save 10% and the shipping is free.

BTW (sidebar), have you seen the modern play kitchen that Pottery Barn Kids currently sells? It's a beauty but...

...this bitch is roughly $1,400+ for the entire set. Scary. I would rather spend $1,400 towards an actual kitchen. This retro one (pictured below) is cool and only $100.

  3. If you are absolutely desperate, try Ebay U.K. Not cheap as now highly collectible and going like hot cakes - but worth a look.
