Hello Aileen and Gail,
I'm very charmed by all the little items you sent! The little roots on the spring onions are a delightful detail - and the little holes in the biscuits. All the cheese is wonderfully realistic. Thank you. Kind regards,
Thank you very much for sending me the missing item. It is lovely! Although I said you didn't have to give me back my money for the wrong item, also thanks! When we see eachother again, I will certainly buy more items from you. With kind regards,
I've just ordered them - Thanks so much
My friend Sara was thrilled to bits with her which arrived beautifully packaged with a lovely Happy Birthday message. The attention to detail is fantastic, and it looks great in her amazing Tudor dolls house! Many thanks, great work!

Market baskets were used in this fashion up to Victorian times.
From Medieval or Tudor through to Georgian times, there was no packaging for any food bought and no shops as such.
You bought in bulk in either sacks, baskets, barrels or crates , from merchants, warehouses, markets or fairs.
In a town, day to day supplies were bought from markets and you had to supply your own containers and wrappings, e.g. jugs, bowls, baskets and cloth, while large leaves were often used for butter, soft cheese etc.
