1940s Co-operative By Linda Holmes

Do take a look at this wonderful 1940s Co-operative shop with living quarters above, created by Linda Holmes.  It has just been added to KT Miniatures' Customer Creations Gallery

Linda lives in Dorset and has been an enthusiastic customer of KT Miniatures for several years now. She had mentioned that she was creating a little shop from time to time and now Linda has kindly allowed us to take a peek.... if you are a fan of miniatures & the 1940s era, you will love this!
Her mum worked in branch No 45 of the Co-op up in Hull before the war.  During the war she had to work in ammunitions, then some time after the war she went back to working for the Co-op.
Inside the shop Linda has added some lovely touches, such as the little girl who is taking a poppy from a soldier (collection tin is on one of the counters). The lady with the ration book has Linda's mums wartime hairdo!
The photos in the living room are scaled down reproductions of her family photos. (Many of Linda's "bits came from KT Miniatures over the years)!
