The store’s grand open­ing took place Oct. 25. Acker will be in the space Mon­day to Fri­day to work on her wares, and will be open for peo­ple to browse and pur­chase from Wed­nes­day to Fri­day, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. She also plans on host­ing work­shops and is look­ing for sug­ges­tions on her Face­book page re­gard­ing what peo­ple are in­ter­ested in mak­ing.

And although she is run­ning a busi­ness, Acker feels more like she’s liv­ing out her dreams.

“I’ve al­ways dreamed that I could do what I love most and do it ev­ery day. And that’s ex­actly what I’m do­ing with this shop,” she says.

No de­tails are missed in any of Shel­ley Acker’s cre­ations. “You don’t need a doll­house to ap­pre­ci­ate minia­tures,” she says.

“My favourite pieces are the ones with lots hap­pen­ing in them,” says Shel­ley Acker. Shel­ley Acker’s cre­ations con­tain an in­cred­i­ble amount of de­tail and take many, many hours to com­plete.
