    From the album Halloween Shop

    This was a Halloween Shop I made using a small kit from miniatures.com that is no longer made. I made the bricks out of paperclay. Some of the items are scrapbook pieces, vintage charms, and printables I made from vintage images I found online. The green skull head is hand painted by me. The chair is from Michaels and is distressed using a rust paint. 
  2. Hi fellow miniaturists!  It's been so long since I have posted, I'm embarrassed. Having an actual retail shop sure keeps me busy, especially being the only storefront in Oregon! The shop is filled to the brim (not literally always have room for more). This historic house located in the Historic District of Aurora Colony Orego is fun, fantastic and I'm so happy I could burst!! If you live in the area or are coming to visit, please stop by!  I am always looking for more...incredible OOAK pieces from the finest artisans to less expensive mass produced items and everything in between. Built houses, kits, building supplies, decor and on and on. If I'm cash poor at the time and can't buy outright, consignment is a great option and you earn more in the long run. I have very low fees also.  Artisans send me their lovlies from all over the world to sell here in the shop.  If you would like to chat about consignment or even the weather I'm always here, so please PM me anytime! Your mini friend, Wendy 
  3. Hello from Oregon! I'm a new member and have no idea what I'm doing. This looks like a great place to share and laugh!  I own the newest Dollhouse and Miniature shop in the Northwest. I would love to talk to artisians who would possibly consign in my shop. I'm not looking to get rich, I'll be happy to pay the rent. I want to share and have fun! What a wonderful passion we share!  I am in this adorable little town, 26 antique shops and almost all are walking distance from each other. Quant little places to grab a snack or even sample wine. I am in the Historic District. Right on Main street in a huge old 2 story house with original hardwood floors throughout. Come and play, visit, meet other miniaturist and have FUN! This is a dream I have had that goes back about 25 years, my grandma and I would sit and plan for hours of what we wanted and what we would do. Some how it's happened. Grandma is here in my heart, guiding me all the way. I moved in here using every penny I could scrounge up, even selling tons of miniatures and collectibles online. Please plan a stop by and share in my dream come true and best of all...I get to live in my "Dollhouse"!  mini hugs to all!

  4. Shop interior

    From the album 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    When the goodies are arranged this seductively, what tiny visitor will be able to resist? Photo 3 of 4 used in the Creatin' Contest entry.
  5. I hope Bonnie keeps her tail still...

    From the album 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    It looks like one good wag will send that duckie skittering across the shop floor!
  6. Sugar shop, view from above

    From the album 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    Birdseye view of the shop, stuffed-to-the-gills as any good shop should be. Maple tree "wall hangings" for sale on the back wall; handcrafted maple (wood) candlesticks and other tchotchkes in the corner by the sliding barn doors, maple-themed wall sconces on the other side of the sliding doors... ... you can never have too many finishing touches, of course!
  7. Waiting goodies!

    From the album 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    Several pans of fresh fudge await packaging. Maple swirl! Vanilla maple! Maple walnut, and even double-maple! Maple syrup is condensing into candy in a huge electric boiler, for use out in the taffy-pulling trough. And that plate of cookies on the short barrel looks so good I can almost smell them from here. This must be maple Heaven!!
  8. Rear exterior of shop with roof

    From the album 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    On looking toward the shack, we see trash cans beside the ice melt—one knocked over, which seems to have tools and some replacement tubes waiting to go out into the woods on repair day.
  9. Rear exterior of shop

    From the album 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    Thorny Rock, Maine seems to be blanketed ;) in one last spring snow today, but brown leaves are still blowing about. Ice melt sits in the back of the shop, waiting to be dragged out at the first sign of slippery walkways. View from the back of the shop, sans roof.
  10. Shop signage

    From the album 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    Reads: Sugar Shop: 100% Pure Maple—Maple syrup • Maple fudge • Maple candies • fresh Maple-taffy pulling in the snow Intended to have a slightly-hurried feel to it. Why would our tiny friends the Aucoins be too slick, when simple will do?
  11. The view through the front shutters

    From the album 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    What the customers see, before they decide to come in from the cold!
  12. Display shelving, detail shot 2

    From the album 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    Every day that I worked on this shop I was hungry. Heck, I'm hungry just editing the photos now. Can't imagine why...
  13. Display shelving, detail shot 1

    From the album 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    Yum! In addition to candies, syrup, and tuques, it looks like there's even one of Thérese's famous maple cakes for sale today!
  14. Shop counter, detail shot

    From the album 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    Detail shot of fudge, platter of cookies, paper plates in a basket, a box of popsicle sticks, and jugs of backstocked maple syrup below.
  15. Cashwrap area

    From the album 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    Looks like someone's just put down the phone to tell someone they're wanted on a call...
  16. Business as usual

    From the album 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    A painting of Thorny Rock's famous(ly tiny) lighthouse watches over the scene. The shutters are open to take orders from outside, and let out some of that wonderful-smelling steam from the next room. Fresh fudge is being cut, paper plates and popsicle sticks are ready for candy-orders and taffy-pulling, a plate of cookies sits on a low barrel for the kiddies while mom and dad shop... ... I hope Bonnie doesn't spot the cookies!
  17. From the album 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    There's Thérese's sweater-jacket, hanging on a coat rack, and Bonnie, the Aucoins' golden retriever, waiting at the door... does she hear something outside? Eager children, playing in the snow?
  18. Back wall of shop

    From the album 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    The back wall of the shop features-half-height walls, which I finished off with cafe-style curtains.
  19. The shop begins to take shape...

    From the album 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    The front counter of the shop is covered in "brushed stainless steel" (actually, a think sheet of aluminum which I then brushed with a wire brush to get the look of stainless), with shelving underneath for backstock and a bump-out on one end for the cashwrap. The stainless is practical as well as visually interesting—it's where warm fudge can be cut and other goodies can be wrapped up for sale. At the far left in this picture you see a large electric-powered cauldron, something like a big crock pot, for heating maple syrup to the "soft ball" candy stage. This hot syrup is used in maple taffy pulling, which takes place outdoors in the snow. Those of you who read the Little House series of books by Laura Ingalls Wilder may actually remember a scene early on in her life where the family does this. It's hugely popular in Québec to this day, and the Aucoins have brought the tradition to their tiny maple sugaring operation in Thorny Rock. (The saws don't belong on the floor... or in the shop! They must have taken a break there without my knowledge on the day I snapped this photo. )

  21. Just added some new miniatures to my Etsy shop-The place is filling up with red hearts. Might be adding more, not sure yet. I'm kind of on a 1/12th scale sewing kick right now, so I'm waiting to see what else I come up with. You can visit my shop here; https://www.etsy.com/shop/KyleLefort Thank you.
  22. Jewelry Display

    From the album Various Miniatures

    I saw this amazing setup at a little jewelry kiosk in the center aisle of the Mirdiff City Center Mall. I love how they set it up to display all kinds of miniature silver charms (teapots, shoes, handbags etc).
  23. I have taken my website down for maintenance. I am changing shopping cart software and am preparing for a big announcement. In the meantime, I have listed a bunch of items in my eBay Store. Some items are "Buy it Now" and some are auctions. I also have some items marked down for an end of month clearance. Stop by and take a look. I will be loading quite a few more pieces this weekend while I rebuild my website. http://stores.ebay.com/All-About-Miniatures
  24. If you follow me on Facebook, DeviantArt, or Tumblr (it's also been in my shop announcements since last night), then you've probably seen this a couple of times already, but I'm guessing many of you would like to know that for a short time, everything in my Etsy shop, miniatures included, is 10% off with the coupon code: 10FLASHSALE My shop, btw; https://www.etsy.com/shop/KyleLefort For anyone intersted, this is the promo notice I've been posting on my sites; "Here in an instant, gone in a flash! What does it mean? What does IT MEAN?" --- That's a Jack Skellington quote, btw. It pops into my head whenever I read the phrase, "Flash Sale", which this basically is, so it's pretty appropriate right now.
