It all worked out in the end for Sonia Kellogg.
Faced with an Aug. 31 eviction from an owner looking to sell the property, Kellogg’s Dolls’ Houses is moving three doors down from its longtime home at 49 Main St. in Cold Spring Harbor and taking up space in the rear of Heritage Candle & Home at 29 Main St.
“It all happened at the 11th hour,” said Kellogg, owner of the renowned doll houses company started by her late husband, Ned. The company had been at its previous location for more than 30 years. Up until Saturday, she was unable to find a new space in Cold Spring Harbor and planned to close shop at least temporarily and put her doll houses in storage.
Kellogg said Brad Weitzman, son of the landlord at her former location, started moving her doll houses over to the new spot for her last Monday.
“It has not been a stressful move. He’s been a gentleman. I have to say, civility is not dead. Some of those houses are over two 200 pounds.”
At Heritage Candle, Kellogg will have a work area and a selling area, as well a space for a doll house in the window.
She said she’ll likely open later next week, Kellogg said.
“This will be a good pairing of the two older time shops.”
