General Store-New England - $$3.95

Once upon a time,, every little town had a General Store sitting in the middle of everything. With the addition of a new sign your general store model can become a Hardware, Barber, Antique Store, or even a boarded up abandoned building. Kinda a sign of the times. Another sign of the times is the moving of the Post Office into the General Store.

New England General Store
Every village needs a general store. There's not a lot to say about a general store except this one is easily fitted out with clear windows as explained in the building details below.. It also has a little layout to be displayed on.

General Store card modelPainting by Bob Bates
We've put a little tree together by gluing that spongy clumpy foliage (that all the hobby shops sell) onto a branchy twig.. An abundance of hot melt glue anchored the trunk to a piece of cardboard. It's real easy to do- try it.
This model (left) was inspired by a painting (right) by a fella named Bob Bates.

The New England General Store was small but somehow was usually able to keep a huge amount of things in stock.
