The Market has the front door (complete with reversible Open/Closed sign), a removable shopping bag and pickable fruits, veggies & flowers. I made all the produce from felt & fleece (the flowers were courtesy of the dollar section at Target).
The Ice Cream Shop has a removable "cooler" filled with felt ice cream cones & popsicles that can be served through the window. Who ordered the chocolate?
The Post Office has a mail bag (complete with removable addressed letters), velcro-on stamps and letter box.
A busy little postman on the job:
The Bank Drive-Thru has a teller window with roller shade, deposit slot and ATM. Someone's looking to make a withdrawl:

I've appreciated all the encouraging comments over the past few weeks as it's come together and have been incredibly flattered that some people have been inspired to make their own Shop Around Playhouse based on my playhouse plan. I've enjoyed sharing how I made it and I would LOVE to see how any of them turn out! Obviously my design is for personal use, not for resale (playing in it yourselves is the best part anyway!). I'm really glad Fawnda over at Fireflies & Jellybeans came up with the idea to do a felt house along each week - it made a large project a lot more manageable, so a big thanks to her for the encouragement, now off to do a little shopping;)
