New Designs for Vintage Village and Upcoming Craft Show

I will be showing my Vintage Village Designs at "Art in the Park" Craft Show in Rutland, Vermont this coming weekend, August 13 and 14, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

I've developed several more designs to the Mini Village. I've added a miniature English barn, a train station, and a one-room schoolhouse  -- all familiar classic designs.  I have these available here

The English barn can be seen all over New England. They typically are found close to a farm house and measure 30 feet by 40 feet. They have a simple gable roof with a pair of large hinged doors.  My English barn has a transom light over the doors on the front eaves-side wall. 

The train station has a hipped roof with a deep overhang, completely surrounding the station. The train station comes with a platform and an observation cupola on the roof. It is modeled after the train station at the Shelburne Museum, which featured two waiting rooms -- one for women and one for men -- with a ticket booth located between the two waiting rooms.

This classic one-room schoolhouse has a bell cupola and the tall windows for plenty of light. There are still a few one-room schoolhouses in use in this country, primarily by the Amish.
