The shop where I buy my miniature stuff feels like a parallel universe.

It is a tiny very old fashioned and always crowded place, which you barely notice from the outside. It is always the same two people standing behind the counter and after having been there quite a lot recently I’ve notisted that most of the customers are the same. Everybody knows the staff, or is it the other way around?

I am by far the youngest person there.

I love the serious but silly conversations among the costumers and clerks. It always makes me smile.

Today I bought four small chairs. I’m gonna paint them black.

    the dollhouse/real life pictures are great and it really is hard to tell the difference : )

    I don’t know if you have seen this photo (follow the link) but its an image of real life chairs looking like dollhouse chairs.

    Do all the other people in the store also make miniature models of their own house or are they doll house enthusiasts?

    !NB! Paint it black is a wonderful song by the Stones IMHO.
