Carl (Mr. Alessi) you have to have stock to stay in business and I intend to supply that stock.

I started making some of the supply of patent "medicines". I was lucky enough to find an
antique buyer's guide that contained a section of these old drugs, showing the boxes
in full color sharp photos. I did cheat in two places, the backs and bottoms of the
boxes would not show so I eliminated that problem. For the sides and tops I made a
generic set and used them on all boxes that needed them, no one can read them anyway.

I made two or three of each and every one with an authentic box front. I printed the
boxes with attached sides and tops on self stick vinyl. The vinyl accepts a really clear
graphic and the self stick make it a lot easier to wrap each around pieces of styrene strip.

I could not resist making a few "Cracker Jacks" to place on he candy counter.

I have a long way to go to get enough made to fill those stands.

Jim, Terrell, Carl,and Dave, thanks for your comments.

Here's the two display units with the patent medicines.






they are installed at the front of the store. I bent some eye glasses from silver colored
wire, added the Cracker Jacks as well as paper and pencils and a box of packages of
Wriggles Chewing Gum to the counter top.

I added three figures to the store, a young boy at the candy counter and I think that's his Mom
waiting. Also a guy looking over the magazines.



There still are some things I might add but I'm going to take a break on the interior and move
back outside. There are some signs I want to add and some more roof detail.

Bob

Excellent work again Bob.

I hate to admit it, but the fellow behind the counter looks like I did in my 40's....or at least the hairline is right!

Bob,

Fantastic work on the counter and medicines. I also really like the figures, especially the magazine browser.

Mike
