    Did it..........right in time!

    Icecreamcones, candys and the cover of the books are made out of fabric. After that I had to come up with other ideas.

    The cans are originally filled with concentrated tomato sauce. I sawed a triangle into the side to remove the sauce (what a mess) and refilled them with cement (even a bigger mess) Then I took the labels from normal sized cans, copied them littler and glued them on and covered with selfadhesive foil.

    The boxed food came from this cardboard play food boxes. I copied them bigger and glued it to wooden blocks, also covered with foil.
    The same with the chocolate. In order the get the original paper I HAD to eat all this chocolate..........

    The bolts are fatquarters and I was looking for save little things in my sewingroom, put them in little bags and covered the top securely with a cardboardlatch.

    I will stock the store and then post a picture.

    Hope you enjoy
    Granny

    As I will be the best customer DGS will need fabric and notions in his shop

    These are just awesome. I am sorry you HAD to eat all the chocolate; what a hardship (rofl). What a wonderful toy store this will be.

    You made me homesick! I would have loved to help you with the chocolate. I hope you can buy Nutella at her store too!

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
