Present Information

A special message from Nancy and Lucy - October 2006


It has been awhile since you have heard from us.  We have reopened as Chier Enterprises? We have been fortunate enough to now have a real store.  My husband made me promise we would not reopen until we had a retail store.  No more sharing our home with a warehouse full of miniatures.


We had the good fortune to acquire a building in Elsberry, MO (about an hour north of St. Louis). We are a full service miniature store and we will continue to handle your mail order business.  Please give us a call for more information or our current hours of operation.  As always, if we do not stock your items, we will be happy to order your miniatures for you through our mail order distributors.


Lucy still resides in St. Louis and will not participate in the operation of the store.  She will still be a part of the miniature world and continues to help provide quality miniatures at affordable prices.


Thanks to all of you for your continued good wishes.  May you all have a Happy Holiday and Healthy and Happy New Year.

In the Beginning

A little background about Nancy Hunot Chier (myself - on the right) and Lucy Hunot Shaw (my little baby sister and best girfriend). In 1993 we were doing business as My Storybook Book Store. We personalized all sorts of gifts; childrens and adult ("over the hill" and sports books - rated G only); bedroom and business size clocks.

Miniatures were also fascinating to us and slowly but surely we tackled the frustrations of not being able to afford furniture and accessories for the beginning miniaturist. In 2000 we added a line of miniature products and changed our business name to Who Knows Minis? The name is really a play on words. All our lives people have chanted "Do you know the youknows?" and "Who knows the youknows"? So Lucy and I decided "What the heck, might as well go with it -- It might help folks remember the name."

We offer affordable furniture, dollhouse renovation tips, refurbishing products and services, dollhouse kits and fully assembled and decorated dollhouses. We are a distributor of many brand name miniatures, including Who Knows Minis?, Handley House and Aztec Imports (Town Square Miniatures). All of our items are new and first quality. We DO NOT deal in seconds. We are also distributors of our own Line of completed houses as well as Corona Concepts and Real Good Toys doll house kits. All our house kits are made in the USA and have a toll free customer support line. Please take a Look at "Chier Hobbies"
