The local Village Shop

My idea for this little shop came about as soon as I saw this dollshouse kit. Straightaway it reminded me of a shop in a tiny village here in North Yorkshire.

I've spent lots of happy times there when my children were little. It was a great place to spend an afternoon out and the local shop there has two Georgian bow windows just like these miniature ones.

Inside you can buy almost everything from local produce to souvenir gifts! People can sit down, have tea or an ice cream and watch the world go by through those beautiful windows as the stream meanders through the pretty grass lined village street.....

Shop interior almost done

I've been busy this last week transforming the shop interior.
I wanted an 'aged' look so opted for stained wood panelled walls
with shelving built in. Now they need filling!

Front of counter

Oranges, apples in boxes (I need to 'age' these boxes) and cakes in the display counter made from fimo

View showing the whole shop with door 'leading upstairs'
Lots more to do but getting there I think......
