Miniature General Store Ideas

Finding miniature general store ideas can be really fun!

General stores offer a lot of opportunities for creativity. Deciding where the general store would be located gives to the theme of the building and the products offered inside. These miniature products can easily be made, bought, and even created with household items. There are also many printables you can find that can be constructed easily and added to a little store.

They also are wonderful for telling a story. You can create little scenes within the store to make it come alive for the viewer. Adding a little “store cat” or spilled box of cereal is a fun way to create some action in the miniature setting. Dolls can be customers and store clerks that tell a bit more about what happens in the store.

In addition, it offers a fun way to learn history. Researching different stores and products during a certain time period is a great way to learn about the past. Using authentic merchandise and styles can create a little historical display that teaches people as well as entertains.

Finally, you can get some great ideas from REAL general stores and other small retail establishments from the video above which is found on my new YouTube Channel “Overnight Coffee”. Carefully curated, these photos are perfect for getting some inspiration and getting some unique miniature general store ideas!

1:144 Scale Miniature Dollhouses

I’ve been busy creating these 1:144 scale miniature dollhouses this week!

These miniature dollhouses make a perfect addition for a dollhouse, miniature collection, or miniature display. They feature a 2-floored house plan with various color themes. Each dollhouse has paper graphics mounted on chipboard for the outside and inside of house. The graphic for the exterior of the houses is digitally miniaturized from a house plan drawing from the late 1800’s.

Unsure of what 1:144 scale is? This very small scale basically means that each inch of the object represents 12 feet. These dollhouses are 2 inches wide, so in “real life” the house would be 24 feet wide. Now, if you put this little dollhouse into a 1:12, where each inch represents a foot, this dollhouse’s width would then represent 2 feet wide, which is good for a “dollhouse in a dollhouse”.

Can you buy furniture for this dollhouse? Absolutely! There are many sellers that specialize in this size of miniatures and have a lot of different items you can buy to decorate in mini style.

You can find these 1:144 scale miniature dollhouses and more in my Late Night Coffee Etsy store. Just click on the photos above or the link to take you to them.
