DMMA Membership Criteria: The DMMA Organization is comprised of a group of actual retail storefronts dedicated to the hands on sale of Dollhouses and Miniatures that can be seen and touched. Members may also maintain an online or catalogue presence, but the main purpose of their business must meet the following criteria: The business must maintain an actual storefront address that is open to the public for a minimum of 20 hours per week spread over at least 4 days or 3 full days per week (minimum 7 hours per day) and is advertised as such at that address. The actual storefront location is hereby defined as a Retail Operation which must be either a Commercially Zoned area allowing Retail activities, or if not Commercially Zoned, then the store location must have local government approved exception permits. In either, the operation at this location needs to have exterior signage visible from the customer vehicle access point, and allow for visitation by 3 or more separate customers at any one time. The business must maintain a minimum of 300 square feet of space dedicated exclusively to the retail sale of dollhouses and miniatures, providing a full selection of dollhouses, furniture, accessories and finishing projects.
