About this creation
This all started with the idea to build the little refrigerator/deli counters, I added the people with the shopping carts and the fruit display and just let it sit for two months.

Yesterday, while Dave was working on his MOCOlypics entry, I decided to see what I could do with it. Added some additional shoppers, some more displays, the check-out lane, and finally finished the exterior. Currently the second floor is vacant, not sure what to do there...

You're really stepping it up in terms of detailed architecture. This is awesome. As usual, the interior is stunning. I'm telling you...we need to collaborate on a build soon. We could do magical things together. ;-)

It is a beautiful job. The jewel in the crown for me is that counter - very clever use of parts. Lee.

Stacy, I really think this one is fun! The counters look great; the clock is cool, etc. Good one!

To get some action outside, Mabye add a dog in the background with a sasuage in his mouth, being pursed by a grumpy man? just a suggestion.. Great job! The colours are exciting! Whilst I am a male, and find shopping with mum boring, one thing that I like is food shopping for myself! ;)

Great work, Stacy. I really liked how you used those "plus shaped" axial pieces for added texture and depth of the building. I also like the clock design, but I think that the entire pediment of this building should be stud-less to match the rest of the building. -Dylan

I had a go at some display cases last weekend and it was a semi-fail -- I took what I had and made it the front window of Kiki's Design Studio in Blockocop Pt. II. I really like the way you did it! The MOC captures the feel of a Mom and Pop grocery (I miss those -- the devil hang you Sam Walton!) Great build, and I love the grocery carts. This will be a great addition to the layout,

You need to add Chris picking up some weird item for his wife or exchanging something like he does every night. LMAO

Quoting Eric and Lawson B Stacy, there is an amazing amount of detail and activity on the inside. You did a great job making it appear busy like a real market. You need something going on outside though. That is a minor point in a fantastic MOC. BTW, your use of windshields for display cases is very innovative! Regards, Eric.
Thank you very much. You are very right - there needs to be some activity outside. Maybe I'll add some bins with fruit, oh and a dog!

Quoting Garth Danielson Nice facade. How do those shopping carts stay up when people aren't holding onto them. see ya. garth
Magic?! Actually the one cart that's off to the side is being held up by some clear 1 x 1 rounds :)

Quoting Heath 'kik36' Flor I love that Stacy! The Deli is really great. Where did you get the piece for the chalkboard?
Thanks! The chalkboard was from the Hogwarts Castle (3rd edition) - set 5378.

You're the only person that I've seen who also had that chalkboard piece. ANYWAY, outstanding job. Nice smooth exterior and interior. Everything this just plain epic.

Wow! Love the upper level arch work. That's such an inviting area. The inside detail is just beautiful as well. It's a shame with the cons that I don't spend more time looking at all of the subtle details in your set up (but there's SO much to see). I'm going to make a point to try to do that next year at Brickworld, though. Great stuff, Sterling!

nicely done! I really like that interior. It doesn't really matter, that the second floor is empty. Maybe put a sign: for rent :) But I wonder what the roof looks like? Just a plain plate with studs? Never liked that... :P

Very nice. I have never noticed a minimart or a butcher corner. The carts only have one axle, so that is pretty confusing. However, you did do a good representation of a grocer store. Good job!

I love the refrigerated section! As for the second floor... Maybe a storage room? Or a small museum of the history of the building? Good day

Great! Love the produce baskets and the carts, the barcode scanner thing on the checkout counter is a great touch as well. Cool exterior detailing as well. Excellent building.

you have so much Lego food! I'm so jealous, any way, great work, you've really managed to capture the feel of a quaint grocery store, without much space, excellent work! ~T

Love the shopping carts. Add a dog tied up outside; that's what I always do when I go to the store.

Very cool. I really like the deli counters and the check-out counter. As for the second floor, I'd say put a hair salon, tattoo parlor or tarot reading place up there. That's what's on the second floor of many of the buildings by my apartment, so it's what I'd expect to see up there.
  October 18, 2009
So... much... potential for jokes about how much I love your smooth interiors and wondering how many more bananas you can fit inside... (Like Dave said, "It's amazing how much that woman can fit into such a small space) Oh, and why don't you annex the second floor to the Amsterdam hotel from AFOLsville? Great work here Stacy! Can't wait to see it in person next... June... (do we really have to wait THAT long) :( Glad to see that seclusion thing didn't last! Keep em coming! ~ Chris.
