The bar shelves
Just too much to credit individually! The glassware is a mixture of real glass, Chrysnbon plastic and very cheap plastic tumblers to fill the last empty shelf. Suppliers were: Heritage Homes, My Tiny World, Molly's House Miniatures, Jasper's Miniatures, A Miniature Marvel, Sussex Crafts, Platt's Mini Packages, Shepherd Miniatures, L & A St Leger, Danny Shotton, Phil Grenyer (Glasscraft), The Little Dollhouse Company (Canada), US eBay business sellers preferred21, larrygscale, lacyhome4boys, tig846 and barblip, and individual eBay transactions. I customised a few items - the packets of crisps are by Shepherd Miniatures, but I made the box for them. I created the Angostura Bitters by printing labels and attaching them to a bought bottle of appropriate size (a Lea and Perrins one from Platt's Mini Packages). I then put the PMP Worcestershire Sauce labels on a larger bottle. Some of the beers and cider are in bottles which came from the USA with American labels, which I have swapped for 1960s UK brands. I will be happy to identify the specific source of any of the items - please ask.

Thank you very much, Joy.

Britvic juices are on the "Things to Do" list, along with Babycham, Cherry B, Pony and Snowball! I have the bottles but need the time to paint and label them.

It really is all brilliant, Julie. Have you any little bottles of Britvic fruit juices? I`ll have a pineapple juice, please!

Thank you, all, for the appreciative comments on the stock. It's been immense fun tracking all these down!

I already have quite a few superb light fittings, ready and waiting. It's working out the circuit, calculating its amperage and buying the transformer(s) I shall need to cope with the load to run it, that I've still to do.

Lovely collection!

I've done my utmost to ensure that these drinks were all available in the UK in the mid-1960s. I still have to set a popular brand of each of the spirits on optics. I also have to label some tiny bottles as Babycham, Snowball, Pony and Cherry B!

Goodness, what a collection! I am impressed!

A well stocked bar, that should keep the customers happy.
