I am creating a small custom millinery shop on the ground floor of my Creole Townhouse. I know that many of the townhouses had businesses on the first floor. My house only has the hat shop on the right side and what would have been a second shop is now converted into an indoor kitchen.
|The decorative "carvings" are dimensional stickers that I will glue to the front after I paint it.|
I used left over wood trim from bakery/coffee shop and a chair rail and some brackets from my church dollhouse kit.

|There was a delay in my shipment and she gifted me a extra hat, how sweet was that!|
Originally I had decided to try and make my own. I bought a package of 12 ready-made miniature straw hats for $3.77. I had planned to leave some natural and cover others with fabric. I bought some small trim to decorate them.
But I think I am going to give this project to my mother. The mirrors I bought a while ago from miniatures.com. I still don't know the name of the hat shop yet.
