Toy shop frame up
My neighborhood framer was able to make a frame with the top strip separated. That allowed me to glue the main frame to the box leaving room between the box and the frame for the acrylic sheet (or glass) to slide up and down. Then I glued the acrylic sheet she cut for me to the top strip. It is hard to see the acrylic sheet, but if you look closely it is there.
 
Framed toy shop with glass down
Here is the acrylic sheet and frame in place and my toy shop remains dust free and is protected from light.
 

The Vintage Toy Shop Display Box Printie CD includes: photo tutorials, patterns, all artwork for wall covering inside and out, customer island, shelving.
