Paper store

The paper store

A few days ago, the Ice and the Maker decided to open up a store.  (Actually, there may have been two separate stores, one for each boy, or it may have been a single store with each boy having his own section.)  At any rate, the store was located in our living room and it sold miscellaneous paper creations, all hand-made by Ice and Maker.

One might think that the location of the store would limit shopping traffic, but that didn’t seem to be a concern for the shopkeepers; if someone wanted to come shopping that was fine, but they were primarily interested in opening the store and creating their creations.

As you can see from the photos, the selection included paper airplanes, paper frogs, paper rings, and paper claws, and a price list was available for interested shoppers.  The store was eventually closed (I needed the chairs and the living room back), but if you see something you like, let me know and I’ll see if I can get it for you.

    I will purchase a fortune teller and a frog. Willing to trade for gimp keychains. I can make a really cool square/circle one! 🙂

  2. Don’t worry if you’re short on cash; I was able to trade glowsticks for a nifty paper ring (which I asked to be customized with pink), a paper bracelet, and my initials cut out of paper. Not what you’d expect to pay…!
