Choosing My First Project
I work in a bookstore and insanely love books so a miniature bookstore seemed like a fun, logical first project. I can just imagine a million little books neatly arranged on shelves! And of course, no good bookstore would be complete without a cafe to get your caffeine buzz on! I was so excited and inspired!
What I wanted:
- A kit. I wanted a project. Not a simple puzzle that snaps together, but a real project that would take some time and effort.
-High quality. If I was going to spend all this time on something, I wanted good quality materials and something that would last.
-Something that really resembled a bookstore. I wanted a display that was accessible and easy to "maneuver"-- no top-loading for me.
-To stay within my price range. Okay, I went slightly over the budget I intended, but for quality's sake I figured it was worth it.
After doing tons of web-surfing I stumbled across the perfect shop! I decided on the Front-Opening Shoppe by Real Good Toys. I was in love!! It had every feature I was looking for! It was just my luck that it also happened to be on special that week. I ordered it!!
