Summer BBQ

Thank you everyone for the lighting tips! Hopefully I will have all the lights up in my shop after my summer vacation. Speaking of summer vacation, a lot of my customers have been wanting meats to grill for their summer bbq party! :)

Have a great summer and I'll be back in July!

Italian Shop

I think I'm almost done with the inside of the shop. I just need to add a cash register, lighting, and some cannolis to the dessert section.

I can't wait to finalize the setting and glue it in place. Hopefully that will make it easier to take it to my next miniature show.

This is what my shop looks with the roofing.

A question to all the miniature experts out there: How do I light up a shop this big? I am hoping to use some battery operated lighting that I can just glue to the top. Any ideas?

Pumpkin Pie

I know it's a bit too early for pumpkin pie, but I had nothing else to post about :)

I guess I want to skip summer and look forward to the cooler weather in the fall.

Meat and Cheese

I have been getting some mails about the meat and cheeses in my new deli shop, so I've made it available in my etsy shop.

I've been getting lazy these past few days, so I believe that I won't be touching the italian shop for another few months :)

Fruits and Desserts

I finally made some progress on the "other" side of the shop. I made a veggie/fruit stall and displayed chocolate and pasta on the top shelves.
 I also added some vintage posters to the walls.

I still need to make cannolis and add a cash register...but who knows when I'll get to that!

Olive Bar

I made an antipasto bar in my italian shop (more like an olive bar). The clay was very mushy becuase of the warm weather and I'm just glad that I'm done making little olive beads :)
The one on the bottom is a plate of pepperoncini.

I was supposed to make 2 more plates so I could fill the whole display case, but couldn't really think of other antipastos. Maybe sun-dried tomatoes?

View from the window...

Have a great week everyone!

June Goodies

In June (6/1-6/26), I will be holding a small promotion- with a purchase of $20 or more in my etsy or ebay shop, I will be giving out these band-aid and neosporin boxes. I believe mini people get cuts and burns every once in a while :) I usually have a box in my kitchen pantry (the kitchen is the most dangerous place).

I also wanted to share a feature Julie did on her blog : It's always exciting to read what other people think of my works! Her blog features other amazing etsy shops so definitely check it out!
