"WORLD COSTUMES" - MY LATEST MARKET STALL

A WORLD COSTUMES MARKET STALL

(Full view)


I had the idea to make a Market Stall for "World Costumes", so named, after my website: www.worldcostumedolls.com
I purchased this market stall in kit form, and painted it with Annie Sloan paint in Louis Blue.  I added a base, which I painted with "French Linen". 
The costumes were all taken off damaged dolls, and dolls I no longer needed to keep, with the exception of the Scottish kilt, blouse and sleeveless jacket (on the extreme left, front), which I purchased off eBay  It is an exceptionally well made outfit, and is 1/12th. scale.

LEFT SIDE (Front)

The full-length mirror on the wall
at the back, was a gift off my daughter.
                                                                     
RIGHT SIDE (Front)

The lady behind the counter is a "Jay's of Ireland" doll,
dressed as a lady from County Cork.

LEFT END

The green painted box on the left, was  made by my friend.  I filled it with "bargains".

 RIGHT END

A lovely beaded Indian dress on the right, and
a plaited wig to go with it.

CRETAN CRAFTS


This is my latest little Market Stall which I have made.  I have based it on the Greek Island of Crete. The doll is a ready made, ready dressed little doll, which is a perfect size.
For this Stall I have used old un-used handkerchiefs, which are of course, already embroidered, and some have dainty lace edging.  They have made ideal little tablecloths etc.

ENJOY!

CRETAN CRAFTS MAKET STALL

CRETAN CRAFTS

(A market stall)

Here is another little market stall which I have enjoyed working on.

I have been working on miniatures since we have all been under certain restrictions due to Coronavirus.
This is just a quick, simple one which I have worked on.  I had the idea for this one since seeing lots of beautiful market stalls some years ago, on the Greek Island of Crete (and other countries), selling lovely handmade tablecloths and doyleys etc.
For this "quick-to-make" stall, I have used ready-made tablecloths, by cutting them up out of unused handkerchiefs, and motifs which can be bought by the yard and cut off individually, to make little doyleys.
The lady "running the stall" is a "bought" doll, and I have left her dressed as she was, as I think she is quite suitable.

I still have some costume dolls to list here, and will hopefully find the time to do it soon!

I hope you are all keeping safe and well!
