a Mini Market Friday

a Mini Market Friday

A post for Market Friday hosted by @dswigle, if you haven't followed her yet you should she is one of the kindest and most supportive people here on Hive, a comment from her is like a ray of sunshine on your page.
This is the one tag and challenge that I always make a point of joining, and also look through the posts of others that join the challenge and seeing markets from all around the world.

For this weeks post, I may yet again be stretching the term Market Friday, but wanted to go with something a little different and since I haven't been out for a walk for a few days I got inspired to setup a lightbox I ordered over a year ago, I had great plans to make use of it last Winter, but my Wife had a fall and ended up spending a few weeks in hospital and then was recovering at home and I needed to be there for her so photography went on the back burner for a few months, but the other day I saw a post where a lightbox was mentioned so I set mine up and was doing a few shots and then I thought some of them could fit for a market Friday post for two reasons.

I did buy the Lightbox so its in a way from a market

and the subject matter is like small shops so also Market related

Now the title Mini Market Friday is because these photos are of some of my collection of small Coca Cola related houses, is the coca Cola sign on this first one

I used to be a terrible one for drinking far to much Coca Cola, and I have quite a collection of Coca Cola Memorabilia and even a Coca Cola themed Tattoo, but lets focus on these little houses

I have these sitting on a table in my computer room, and looking at these shots now I see some dust on some spots, I must after preparing this post clean them up a bit, and yes I know I should have done that before taking the photos

Wow nice

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

Welcom Sir 😊

That is a super lightbox setup for convenience in photography of small pieces, the miniatures sure are dinky small wonder if they were made to model into train or car sets that were the rave back when.

Great detail on each Jay, have an amazing weekend and regards to Lulu trust you both holding up through the cold season.


Thanks for your visit, that was always my plan when I first bough these to eventually build a train setup and have these houses spread around the tracks, havent got he tracks and trains yet but maybe one day

You to have a good weekend ;)

Husband had a massive train set on raised table with villages, rivers, stations, signals. When we married we had nowhere to store it then sold it to a charity who raised funds putting it up in Malls on display.

Very expensive hobby which I think his father had more fun from than he did as a child.

Sounds like it was such a cool setup he had a pity there wasnt room for it but at least it helped a charity

Was an impressive set up with homemade table, collapsible sides and a wooden top to cover when not in use keeping dust off.

Cleaning railway tracks was painful as it had to be spotless to run efficiently. Oh the whole theme was of Switzerland with mountains and people, small cars it was "birthday presents" for many years, all electrical.

WOW that does sound amazing clearly so much time and love went into it

It was a big set, table about 5.5 ft x 4 ft wide, very realistic scenery.

Have a great day

That's definitely wonderful!
Not only does it show the ordinary life of years ago,
but look... it chronicles the ads and equipment of years past!

Trying to think of different things so my feed doesn’t get to boring

I think the bait and tackle shop is my absolute favorite. That is really awesome. My buddy is a big Coke collector too. He used to have a ton of stuff laying around when him and I lived together. Very nice shots! That light box really is cool.

That’s cool you have a friend with similar I have a box or two of other bits still unpacked lol

I am looking forward to some other ideas to try in the lightbix

That's what I love about these platforms: you become resourceful. I didn't know such a thing as a lightbox existed. I just love it when I learn something new every day How nice the details of the thumbnail look . I hope your wife's recovery is going well ! Regards

Thanks and yes she is doing a lot better now

The lightbox worked out well looking forward to do more with it
