I need to update you on some new additions to the italian shop. I decided to go with "Figaro's" since it has 2 less letters than Geppetto's :-) Thank you to everyone who voted!
I made the store sign, but unfortunately it will have to be re-done (long story). I am thinking of a darker wood color than the black background. What do you think? I also added a "We are open" sign.
I also put price tags on the olives and fruits. Still need to make some for the cheese and meats.
Since I don't know how to make wine bottles (yet), I made boxes of wine instead. How slick is that? My husband says it's cheating...
I also have bottles of San Pellegrino and Acqua Panna. Do you recognize the silver cans? If not, I don't blame you...those are "illy" coffee tins. Not very happy with them, but at this point, I really don't care.
It looks like this shop will be opening in 2013...at least before the next Winter Olympics... I hope!
