Soon I realised that making a deli wasn't that easy as I needed specific items, which weren't really part of the SF range, which meant I had to order it from sellers who specialises in making miniature and dollhouse items. This was hard to find in SA and every-time I went to ebay to order it, it turned out to be just too expensive.
Another year on, and I finally managed to get an Orchard Cottage for them, from a seller who was willing to send the cottage to SA. Also, I meant an angel, who was willing to make the items I needed for the Deli. We worked out a trade and all was set. Another month or so and then my Corntops will be able to move into their home and open their shop, or that was the plan.
But then the dreaded 6 month strike happened, and it took another 4 months for the workers to sort out the back log, so 9 months after I have finalised the trade with Kyraja and the cottage was posted, I received it and was finally able to decorate the Cottage and the Shop.
Hope you enjoy the tour that Hector and Christabel will give you, and do check in later for a story of the grand opening.
