Let's go back in our childhood. (The ones who still resemble themselves as "children" don't need to go back anywhere
Most of the kids get idea sometime through their childhood to start some sort of play "store", usually in front yard or somewhere near their home example sideway of the street where potential customers walk by. The common version of this "play store" are the 'Lemon Stands' (common at least in USA) and other little stands where kids sell something that they have sneak from the fridge or have asked from their parents to hand them. (In Baby Blues comic Zoe and Hammie wanted to keep a Lemon Stand but they had no lemon in fridge, just tomatoes and cupcakes. So they had tomato & cupcake stand They end up to eat all the cupcakes themselves and threw the tomatoes to a kid who kept calling them with names =P)
This "play store" behavior is part of child's normal roleplaying where they try different roles, this time a role of store/shop keeper.
The question of this topic is;
When you were kid and (if) you kept any "stands" what kind of stuff you sold in your little frontyard store?
I can't remember myself keeping up any kind of food selling stand, but once when I was about 7yo I collected a pile of round stones from river bank, and when they had dried I painted them with fingerpaint and tried to sold them as some kind of decoration items (
I can still remember how I made sign with markers on a white cardboard saying "Beautiful Stones just 5 marks /piece" (= about 75c or 90c in nowadays US$)
. I think I sold 2 stones for the neighbor old ppl who came to look what I'm doing
Year after that I can remember how I built a really cool looking stand with my friend and we tried to sell something that we had collect from outdoors. I can't remember was it flowers or currant berries but it was fun. Thou we never had a customers cause my friend's homeyard was in the middle of large open space and we weren't allowed to bring our stand to the side of road that went in the other end of the field
We got bored of that play quite soon as we had no customers (other than my friend's parents and granparents maybe) and started to do something else.
So, what kind of "stands" you have keep when you were kid? Were they stores or did you have example "medical advices stand" like Lucy keeps in Peanuts comic
