Jackie Lee

Jackie Lee launched her business Dolls House Emporium, after spotting a gap in the market for creating scale model kits of timber-framed dolls’ houses back in 1979. Through her energy and enthusiasm, she developed it into a fully-integrated, multi-channel business employing nearly 90 staff, where all but the manufacturing and media-buying were undertaken in house.

Jackie says her proudest achievement has been “being recognised for the quality of our products and service, by our customers and through winning the Outstanding Customer Service Award many times.”

She has recently sold her world market-leading business and retired after 34 years at the helm.
