As I was stocking shelves, I would think of different items that I just had to have in the store. I would drop everything and began creating that particular item. Among these handcrafted items are all die teeny clay race cars, die tray of mood rings on die counter, die.
ABOVE LEFT: The tiny trinkets on the desk. ABOVE: A young patron of the store parks his or her bike on the street.
BELOW LEFT: The desk below the cash register holds even more toys.
Paper chain, a few dolls here and there, little pom-pom teddy bears (which are surprisingly easy to make) and the peg-board full of toys in packages hanging on the wall.

My now-eleven-year-old daughter, Pamela, has made many of die really tiny clay dolls and figurines diat are scattered around. She's a litde genius widi polymer clay (just like her grandma). She loved to surprise me by leaving her litde creations in my desk for me to find while she was at school. That cute little doll on the front step was made by Karen Ferrier. I bought her I because she looks just like f my daughter.
My mum was wrong.
