Check out these fab cauldrons i bought last week. They arrived a few days ago and ever so pleased with the quality. The large cauldron is from the 1:12 section and the smaller ones are from the 1:24. Even though they are meant to be 1:24 i love them because they are great for 1:12 stoves, tables and potion making scenes. Just got to think what to do with them now.
The small ones measure2 cm in height, and the big one measures 3.5 cm in height.
Normally when i go to the Kensington Dolls House show i always visit the Village Wheelwright stand . I dont buy much but they always have a nice selection of hand trowels, cutlery and other little bits i can mix into my work.
They offer a mail order service and are ever such a friendly couple. All it takes is a letter, email or phonecall to place your order.
The stock some wonderful items for blacksmith scenes, Tudor houses, Lighting, 24th scale furniture, and a nice mix of other mini's. The cooking utensils section is fabulous.
Check out this fabulous spit roats which turns just like the real thing.

Here's the link again to the website: Small Scale Miniatures
and the Village Wheelwright

While on the subject of cauldrons check out the smoking chimneys for mini's. I would imagine it wouldn't be too difficult to fit these into cauldrons for that extra spooky effect.
Here's the links:
