The lowdown: Welcome to the dollhouse — Veronica’s Dollhouse, that is. Owners Veronica and Andrea Gonzalez have created a charming space where adults can shop for dresses, shoes, accessories, perfumes and more.
“We treat each and every client as if they are our house guest. We offer them cookies and tea, which they can enjoy by the crackling fireplace or watch one of the classic movies playing in the living room,” Veronica says.
The ‘hood: The shop is just a puddle jump away from the Shops at Sunset Place in South Miami.
The ambience: Think life-size dollhouse. Guests will find a lavish living room and a kitchen filled with candies, chocolates, teas and tasty treats. The closet is chockfull of frocks, shoes and accessories. There’s even an attic brimming with vintage treasures and rare finds. The rococo-meets-Victorian themed dollhouse also boasts a bedroom laced with elegant bedding, blankets, pillows, and throws.
“Each room is meticulously themed and carefully merchandised to enchant women of all ages,” Veronica says.
