We have now added the recent eBay sales to each of the individual cottage pages. If there have been sales within the last 90 days, a table will be displayed showing the price the cottage sold for, as well as how many bids, and a link back to the eBay item. We hope you find this additional information useful. If you have any questions, please feel free to Contact Us.
We have added a list of ALL David Winter Cottages to our website. We display the list by Name, by Year Released and also by Collection. If you find information is incorrect, please feel free to Contact Us.
We hope you enjoy our site and find this information useful.
Where our collection began...
The Cotswold Village was my very first David Winter cottage and was given to me in 1987 by my husband. Our collection started there and grew quickly. In the late eighties, most cottages were sold in Hallmark stores or other little gift stores. My husband and I would spend weekends and evenings touring malls and plazas in the hope of discovering a hidden treasure of a retired cottage. Our collection grew to over 200 cottages each one special and unique.
We even took a road trip and visited the International Exposition in South Bend, IN and met David Winter in person. Meeting him was a thrill and we got to talk to him about his cottages.
As life got busier, our collecting slowed down and finally stopped. We still treasure our cottages and look back on the wonderful memories we have of collecting them. We hope you enjoy our collection below as much as we do...
About David Winter...
David Winter was born in Yorkshire, England in 1958. He started creating cottages after meeting John Hine after he left sixth form college. They collaborated for 17 years after which he also had partnerships with Media Arts Group, Enesco and Friends of David Winter (FDW). David Winter officially retired in January 2010, and production of his cottages ended in 2012.
Many thanks to David Winter for all the wonderful cottages he created.
Some of our cottages belong to specific collections and we have tried to group them together as much as possible.
