From the street they can see other mini people.
"Let's go in," they say together.
Inside is a fairy land.
There is a Chinese royal family dressed in exotic silks.
There are ancient castles.
And a beautiful Lenci Bo Peep has lost her sheep.
Hey Bo! Look on the other side of you. Your sheep are right there next to the big glass jar of babies.
Daphne and Colette have their picture taken with some of the shop residents. (Thanks to the permission of the kind shop keeper.)
There were wonderful antique miniatures in glass cases all around the store.
"No, no." says Colette. " They are in the cases to protect them from being damaged by the big peeps. They are very happy in their little homes."
Daphne is relieved, but still a little creeped out.
