Quarter Scale Market Stalls

These are quarter scale market stalls offered as kits by Suzanne Larson-Tamburo of They're cute kits that have a base that is under 2 inch wide and high and range from $12 to $17 (at least the ones I bought).

Although small, it takes at least 1-2 days to complete each stall kit and the painting can drive you batty. However, when it's all done, you really enjoy the end result and they take up hardly any room at all.

I collected mainly the ones that represent a holiday or a special feature related to conventions or houseparties I have attended.

 This kit contains multiple cast metal miniatures and seemed to be a "value" for the price, but the painting for the dollhouse, the doll, the doll bed, the car and truck about killed me, because it's quarter scale toys for a quarter scale doll (1.5" high max).

The Playtime market stall was offered during 2013's Lexington Playtime Memories Houseparty.

 The Celebration market stall was introduced at 2012 Charlotte National Convention celebrating NAME's 40th anniversary. It features party supplies. I added gift boxes, gift wrapping paper rolls seen at the back of the stall.

 This market stall was introduced in St Louis NAME National convention in honor of Mary Engelbreit. Had to have it.

 This market stall wasn't too hard, except for painting the snowmen. You have to follow the reference finished picture in order to "see" the broom, mittens, hat, scarves and buttons. What you get is a handful of gray metal figures that you have to bring to life with paint.

 In honor of St. Patty's Day. The leprechaun on top counter is a bead or button, so no paint needed--yay! The leprechaun on the base was all gray metal and a pain to paint. You also have to paint the pot of gold. The rest was easy.

 Here's the Easter market stall. More painting--basket of eggs, goose with teddy bear around its neck, white bunny, and I repainted the egg because I wanted mine pink but I received a lime green egg in my kit. Cutting some of the printies (Easter basket, egg decoupage, the egg shape cards) was a pain, but worth it in the end.

 In honor of July 4th/Independence Day.

 In celebration of Fall and Harvest Season.

 Wouldn't be complete without Christmas market stall.
