Groceries
Probably the tiniest things in anyones dolls house are those essentials that fill every cupboard and drawer, to make the opening of them so exciting and 'real' ! This is a selection of the groceries that were always staples in Nan's kitchen cabinet. Oh the memories.

These comments are are a great example of just how much regional diversity there is in the UK for naming (in this case) food. Considering that the country is small, you don't have to go far before the names change!

My nan used to make me marg & sugar sandwiches & I loved them! Butter was rationed & I didn't like the taste of it when it was off ration.


My late uncle (b1941) never got used to the taste of butter. He ate cheap, hard marg on his bread all his life. He didn't even like soft margarines after they became available!

I have a confession, I LOVED butter sarnies way back then...and over the past year or so I've started eating them again, in fact had one tonight ! Ha Ha..I have to eat the crust off first, then flatted the sarnie as much as possible and then eat it from the edges into the middle ! Don't ask ! Ha Ha....

My Nanna used offer me "sugar butties" as a "treat" when I was little - I thought they were revolting, even then!

My gran, who was no waif, always had Slimcea or Nimble bread but she would spread it with butter and dip it in the sugar bowl for a treat - so wrong on so many counts!

All still on sale now I think, it's all the little extras that make it a home, they will look just right.
