Hooper's Hardware Store

Post by Lightningtiger on Fri 23 Aug 2013, 3:37 pm

Well, for a change - no stickers but still open backed though.
I now present.......Hooper's Hardware Store

Here we see Mr. Hooper about to sweep the front entrance of his store.
His father started this business in the late 19th century and modern ideas are the last thing on his mind......he's quite old fashioned in his ways.

As you can see the store hasn't changed much since the late 19th century, the big drawers full of hardware, the big paper roll for wrapping parcels, the old school display tables and the big heavy front doors (yes, they do open and close perfectly).

Hopefully tomorrow if Mr. Hooper is in a good mood we can get some more interior and close up shots of the store.....but he was a little testy tonight so fingers crossed for tomorrow then.

Comments are always welcome, plus any questions for old Mr. Hooper.....hopefully he'll answer them (oh, I hope he doesn't mind being called old ?) legolaugh

Wow that was a quick reply legolaugh 

I think it's pretty good as is........ But there's always room for more interior detail.... I'm not quite sure what but I'm sure you'll think of something legoeyeshutlaughing

Great design LT.

Excellent detail.

Though I must confess that I was drawn to the topic as I thought that I was going to see Big Bird sitting in Mr Hooper's store. legolaugh
