Maria,

I love this vignette so much. When I saw that little cash register, I decided I needed one. I remember we used to have a little red one to play with when we were kids. I wonder where it went?

Anyway, I always love to see your seasonal vignettes - they are real smile makers.

Lucy

I have had more than one request from folks who would like to add a cash register to their Christmas scenes---but find some of the more antiquey/vintage ones---even the repros---rather pricey (I got lucky when I found mine).

That being said, they were looking for a faux tinplate/cardboard option they could mock up.

I cam across this https://www.orientaltrading.com/play-ca ... 06435.fltr

Will keep looking
