Chautauqua Miniatures and Dollhouse Gallery & 2 Chixx Gift Shoppe is owned and operated by two dedicated miniaturists - Sandra Duffee and Heather Johnson. In 2003, we purchased the former Pearson's Miniature Store from Lakewood, New York. Leaving behind our 9 to 5 jobs, we took the chance to pursue a dream. (And now we work all the time!!) All our years of creating and collecting miniatures helped us realize this was a dream come true!

As time has passed we have expanded our offering to be the equivalent of a wonderful department store, with personal service! We specialize in 'extraordinary' home decor, boutique clothing and jewelry, candles, cards, family games, antiques and so much more. We're your one stop shop, whether it's a hostess gifts or something special for your home, we can help you make just the right selection.

We also carry unique toys for the kid in all of us!

  • Creative Activity Sets
  •  Puzzles
  • Melissa & Doug Toys
  • Tea Sets
  • Wood Blocks & Baby Toys
  • Fold 'n Go Dollhouse, Barn, Castles and Stable
  • Fun gifts for those hard to buy for 'tweens'
  •  Science Activity Kits

Our Shop is located at a wonderful place called The Red Brick Farm in Mayville, New York, close by the shores of beautiful Chautauqua Lake and just 1 mile North of Chautauqua Institution on Route394.

The Red Brick Farm Shops include our Gift Shop- "2 Chixx"- (located under the same roof as Chautauqua Miniatures), also The Yarn Cottage and  Stone Works, during Summer Season.

A top class French Restaurant - La Fleur - is open June to August. In addition we are located only one mile from the world famous Chautauqua Institution. This is truly a destination location, so plan to spend some time!

There are numerous Hotels, B & B's, Motels and Campgrounds in the area for our over nite guests.
