A little Christmas cottage industry

Hello All!
I have been busy, busy elfing away in my friends shop .
It is a very little shop in the front room of her house!
Here is the window in all its festive finery.
I am especially fond of the Russian doll bunting and the felt birdie garlands.
Having finnished the window I bombed off in the car for some retail therapy of our favourite sort.................

And then I had to set up for one of Christmas Fairs that we do.
Here is my table ready to rock and roll


I also have this particularly brilliant piece of equipment which always attracts a crowd!



Yes I really do use it!
It's great for all the small change.
Here we are in action!
All the fun of the fair!
Hope you are having a good week?

  14. Everything is so festive and beautiful...The till is too cute for words!
    Reminds me of one of my favourite toys as a child a small till, which I loved playing shop with.
    How i'd LOVE to be able to have a Christmas in the Northern hemisphere, I never can get quite into it fully here..simply not the same.
    Oh well, I can enjoy it through the wonder of blogs :)

  15. Hello Sarah

    I loved your Robin post, so apt for this time of the year.

    Your stall looks wonderful, so many things to be tempted by. That till is fun! I have been on the look out for a real vintage cash register for a while now. When I was 16, I worked in a shop which had an old till, I loved the feel of the buttons and the sound the till made!

    Take care
