Celebration of First Anniversary Visit to Micki Headquarters Underway
Our memories of the September 6, 2012 Gemla Gathering remain very strong and emotional. To celebrate the memory of both Lundby’s 65th anniversary and our visit to Micki Leksaker, we designed a plaque for the event. Peter Pehrsson, who was an indispensable part of planning the trip, recently presented the club’s gift at Micki Leksaker headquarters.
Småland is Coming to America and Canada
It's been an eight-year drought for Lundby distribution in the US and Canada. To get the specifics, refer to the front-page article, “Decision to Discontinue Lundby Products in US & Canada Stuns Avid Collectors,” in the September 2005 issue of The Lundby Letter.
That scarcity of Lundby is soon to change, according to Kristina Aronsson, Micki Product Development Manager. “We will launch the Lundby Småland line in the US and Canada this year, starting in August,” wrote Kristina in a recent email. The Småland is the new name for the Gothenburg, mainstay of Lundby dollhouse design. More details will be unveiled soon about how the new launch will be conducted.
