Thank god someone out there knows exactly what the world needs. That someone is Etsy seller EverydayMiniatures and that need is filled beautifully by an intricately-detailed miniature scale version of 6151 Richmond Street, which served as the fictional home for the greatest non-traditional sitcom family of all time — Dorothy Zbornak, Rose Nylund, Blanche Devereaux and Sophia Petrillo. The Golden Girls.
Sure, it’s a little on the expensive side, but can you really put a price on perfection? Apparently, and it’s $175. And it doesn’t even come with a lanai. But look at everything else it comes with it:
Front Entry, Furnished Living Room, Furnished Kitchen, Bedroom hall, and a cheesecake. There are plenty of Easter Eggs for the die-hard fans to find!
– Sophia’s bamboo purse in the living room
– Rose’s painting of St. Olaf from Season 5 “All Bets Off”
– Open the kitchen cabinet to find Dorothy’s bike helmet from Season 6 “There Goes the Bride”
– Blanche’s Commemorative Citrus Festival Ball Plate (glued back together) from Season 5 “Ebb Tide”
– Look for the deck of cards Rose used with Gene in Season 2 “Isn’t it Romantic?”
– Rose’s “R” Cups from Season 5 “72 Hours”
– Rose’s Teddy Bear Fernando from Season 3, “Old Friends”
– Baggie of Egg Yolks from Season 5 “Sick and Tired”
– and of course, a cheesecake from, well… almost every episode 🙂
Paper doll versions of the girls are also included for you to artfully re-create seven seasons of St. Olaf stories, thinly-veiled sexual innuendo and sarcastic comebacks. Originally, there was only one model available, but thanks to “popular demand” — a bunch of queens openly screaming about it — the dude/dudette behind EverydayMiniatures is making more.
May we suggest for the next mini project: a scale version of the Rusty Anchor, so we can all recreate Dorothy’s bravura performances of “What’ll I Do?” and “Hard-Hearted Hannah” while Blanche trips over herself to “I Wanna Be Loved by You.” While we’re at it, what are the odds of getting a replica of St. Olaf, Sophia’s tiny Sicilian village and that ballroom from the dance-a-thon?
