new designs

Hi All

Have I been busy? really getting into my shop now, ideas are flowing, I have a  book so that every time I get an idea I write it down so I do not forget it. Its not in any order and to the non miniaturist it would look like a load of nonsense, but not to me. 

I finished my counter for the men's side of the shop, filled it with designer jewellery and aftershaves, it is the same as the ladies counter just smaller.

I made some watches and aftershaves to sit on the top.

It will have a matching display unit, this will be filled with, wallets, hankies, ties, all sorts of men's accessories.

While I was making some wallets, I had a light bulb moment and quickly wrote down " man's toiletries bag" and a quick sketch, see how my little book comes in handy.

I carried on making man bag's, brief cases and wallets.

I then decided to attempt to make my toiletry bag, first I drew out a design on graph paper, and then tried it out on card, after i made a few adjustments I was happy with my design, so using thin leather I cut it out, added various pieces that a man would use.

you can see the result in the photo's along with my other bits I made, enjoy.

I just had to try it

Hi All

Yes I just had to try it, what am I talking about? my counter and shop displays in the shop.

I am really pleased to how it is turning out, I have decided to put the handbag display on the next floor, it was too  much and looked  cluttered,  the opposite side is for men's accessories. I am in the process of making another counter, this will be slightly smaller than the ladies counter, and will contain men's designer aftershaves, watches and some jewellery. I hope to be putting a picture on for you to see tomorrow.

so for now, have a look at my ground floor, let me know what you think.
