Originally I was going to make my Christmas shop in the shop from Camp Mini Ha Ha 2009 but one of the displays we had there was in a display case like this and since I had one at home, I decided that it would house my Christmas shop. I'm still busy making things to fill it. Between these and my stash, I suspect it will be one crowded shop!
And there's where I left it in July 2009 (first 19 pictures).
The problem with the display case is that there is an approximately 1/2" x 1/4" wooden lip at the edges of the glass and in order to have display cabinets, etc., against the glass they have to be built in which means all work needs to be done through the bottom of the top of the display case. It took me a lot of thought before I could see in my mind just how I could handle this.
