Finally, done setting up my makeshift clothing boutique for my collection. I have moved the SF families to a bigger home. Instead of buying a new furniture, I decided to turn my starter home into a clothing boutique. I did a few create-your-own accessories to fill-up the workstation of my little shop keeper.
Here is my customized clothing boutique workstation. I have combined original SF furniture with hand-crafted accessories and some Re-ments I traded from a friend. It saved me some money instead of buying ready-made ones.
Here's a closer look of each part.
I made miniature piles of fabric using chipboard bases and scraps of assorted fabric. The boutique catalog is made of scrap papers and cut-outs from SF toy catalog. The books are from a Re-ment set. I've added scrap laces, dress pattern papers and waste bin out of a sewing thimble to complete the miniature materials for my shop keeper. I placed them inside a basket and an SF baby cradle.
I cut the top part of SF baby bottles to have jars of beads and made more piles of fabric.
Then folded assorted 1/4" wide ribbons and cut felt papers as stash in the drawers.
More fabric under the workstation.
I placed the makeshift shop on top of the hamburger station.
My shop keeper at work with her daughter. I cut more photos from SF toy catalog and posted them as posters or ads inside my makeshift shop.
Some customers enjoying the shop. I'm thankful to my friend who gave me her extra fitting booth. I cleaned it and decorated it with stickers and added a foam carpet inside.
The top floor is the shoe shop area. I received these sets from two different person last Christmas. Thanks, again! :)
...and more customers coming it to have a look of the new shop in the village.
Before I go I would like to share the set-up I did for my SF collection.
Have a great week ahead!
