The Mini Emporium


This miniature Olive and the Larder Emporium is the extraordinary work of Rotterdam-based miniature maker and creative Erika Harberts of Mikodesign.

When coming up with a way to launch our first Olive book, during the lockdown of 2020, we knew a regular event would be difficult – too many restrictions on guest numbers, too difficult for people from afar to join in.

So Erika created Olive’s dream shop using the details from Inga’s illustrations and Bianca’s story as her inspiration.

Look closely to spot Olive’s herb hanger, her tiny linen apron, even her kitchen’s chequerboard floors. 


The featured miniature storybooks and entire doll-sized scene were an inspiration behind us creating our limited-edition Olive doll with her very own miniature copy of Olive and the Larder, available for purchase here.

For all you fellow miniature-lovers out there, enjoy browsing through these sweet photos captured by Erika in her studio in The Netherlands!




And if you are inspired to create a mini shop of your own, Erika can help! Visit
