Vintage Grocery Store

This was one of the first miniature buildings I worked on. It
was a Carelton kit. I remember thinking at the time that
I was glad it was so small because it is surprising how long
it can take to fill a grocery store. I learned a lot about the
turn of the century by working on this project. I really enjoyed
figuring out how to make all of the fruits and veggies. I upgraded
it as I discovered wonderful Farrow vintage labels and jars.
The cockatiels I had at the time used to pick out the fruit
drop them on the floor, the looked like they were shopping.
I made the apothecary jars from the center of old
Christmas lights.
