[ooc] Candy Shop (post is photo-heavy)
For those who are interested in what the candy shop looks like, I have a description below the cut (since I got a request for it a while back). Includes pictures - of the exterior, interior, candy, and uniform!
❀ The candy shop was originally created by Saiga and Kakei, as a drug store wasn't needed at the time and Kakei has whims I suppose. Himawari was hired on shortly thereafter if only to give her something to do. Once Kakei and Saiga disappeared within a year of founding the store, it was inherited by Himawari and she's owned it and maintained it every since.
❀ Himawari (and by extension Doumeki and Lancelot) does not make the candy herself, rather the candy is supplied to her by this world and she has no idea where it comes from, nor does she question it oops.
❀ The candy shop doesn't have set hours - she tends to open it every day after she's done with school, and all day on Saturdays until the late afternoon/early evening. She is known to close it down randomly if she can't emotionally handle running a business.
❀ It's called the candy shop but it mostly specializes in chocolates in addition to "candy".
❀ ETA: As of November 2014, Lancelot has inherited the candy shop - as both Himawari and Doumeki have returned home.
The candy shop looks like a rustic, old-fashioned store from the outside. There's a door and large glass windows that reveal what's inside - lots of candy! The candy shop itself doesn't have a name and instead any signage would say "candy" or "candy shop", as Himawari never actually got around to naming it and it just kind of became known simply as The Candy Shop.
There's an old open/closed sign hanging on the glass front door and the windows often have signs on them or writing advertising what kinds of things are on sale at any particular moment (Himawari is often overstocked and therefore there are often sales going on).
(sorry for the blurry images - it was the only pics I could find within stock images/commons that fit the image)
The interior of the candy shop is a small one-room shop with wall-to-wall wooden shelving full of the chocolates and candies. There's a large counter that has all the fancier, nicer chocolates on display and require being hand-packed by the worker, whereas ready-to-go chocolates and candies are stocked on the walls for customers to pick at their leisure.
Behind the counter, there's a door leading to a back room, where there's all the general, boring employee stuff, as well as a couch for resting and any left over chocolates that don't fit on the stockroom floor.
The floor is checkered like pictured above and the newest looking part of the shop - everything else seems very old-fashioned.
When Kakei and Saiga owned the shop, there was a uniform that Himawari's kept over the years if only because the order/control of such things offers her a little stability.
The women's uniform, featured above, is a blue knee-length dress with polka dots, in addition to the white apron worn over it and a yellow star as a nametag with her name on it. The picture isn't a perfect-fit for the image, as there are also capsleeves for the uniform.
Doumeki and Lancelot have similar uniforms that fits the color scheme -- black trousers, blue shirt, white apron, and yellow star nametag.
