Karen Aird Miniatures has been in business since 1990. Karen first attended Dollhouse Shows up and down the East Coast of the USA as a child, helping her grandmother Marion Jantz who was a self-taught miniature glass blower. In 1990, Karen started her first business “Jantz’s Glass & More”, which became “Karen Aird Miniatures” when she married her husband Andrew in 1998. Karen and Andrew are well-known faces at Dollhouse Shows all over the USA.
Karen has a wealth of experience in the business. She has had dollhouse stores in New Jersey since 2001, first in Summit, and most recently in the heart of Basking Ridge, where she lives with her family.
Karen & Andrew have just taken over much larger premises in Whitehouse Station in New Jersey (see pictured), where they have more sales rooms to support their growing businesses.
Karen has also been wholesaling since the late 1990s, when she started representing manufacturers from England in the USA, most notably Glasscraft and “A Woman’s Touch”.
Karen has sold Reutter Porcelain for over 20 years, and is very excited to have been selected as the new USA representative by the Reutter family.
