This building was a special request by Santi who had asked me to see if I could recreate a building he had seen on the internet. Keeping to the original style corner building I added my own touches here and there to create a large department store which I have named Fortnum & Mason after the high class store in London.
Starting in the attic it has a photographers and artist studio, then a ladies and gentlemans outfitters, a luxury food hall and on the ground floor a florists and a wine merchants.
I must say a big thank you to the original building designer who has done an amazing job on their version. I will admit they have done a much better job on the building than I managed but I hope they will not mind my copying their work. Bravo!!
This is the original photo I was sent next to mine.
Nearly six years ago now I created the Bistro De Paris from the Playmobil 5302 new mansion. Although a simple build it has always been one of my favourite buildings and after selling the original I planed to build another for me but with a couple of extra floors. So I bought another a few years ago and some extra floors and then it sat in my loft untouched for years.
Well I have at last got it down and built it !!! (It was one of many half started projects I have around my home) As you can see I've added a casino and a reading / relaxing floor to the original building.
I'm currently working on some major changes to this blog. When I first created it I didn't really know what I was doing so I ended up creating a "page" for all of my large items. Several years ago you could only have 20 pages per blog, so I split my blog across several eg. Victorian, Nautical, Medieval. Now I know what I'm doing a little bit better I'm working on moving all of that content back into one blog site so everything can be tagged and sorted to make it easier for visitors to find what they're looking for. So the other blog sites will be closed down one by one and you'll be redirected to the correct page here. Please forgive me for any broken links etc that might occur while I'm sorting it all out :)
I enjoy creating custom Playmobil pieces, unfortunately I don't have the space to keep some of them. Every so often I will have new items for sale as I change my displays, these extra pieces I will list on my Emporium shop site.
