Dunn's Buns | 6 Comments - Click Here :


Keith Hayes - Catherine Dunn, of Dunn's Buns Pies and Cakes, recently took delivery of two new sales counters for her bakery, located at the corner of 6th and Hemlock in Leadville. Not being one to cut corners, Mrs. Dunn ordered them constructed of marble, and the boys reported they were darn heavy to move. We expect many fine breads and desserts will cross these counters.

Mr. Britton inspects the new counters upon arrival.

Finished painting the counters.

  1. Very nice Keith!
    While I like the counters, I am most impressed with the first photo, and the depth perception of the street achieved through your selective compression. Care to tell us all how you did it?

    Is Dunn's a model of an actual structure,based on an actual structure,or is it freelanced?

  3. Dunn's is a Banta Silver Plume Store (lately it has been a bakery). Hemlock Street is freelanced, but inspired by the real thing. More on the background later.

  5. Robert, the model in the image is S scale and was constructed from a Banta kit. The kit is available in multiple scales from Banta (including O); Bill Banta recently sold the S scale kit line to another firm and they are available from Scenery Unlimited and PBL.

    I got an e-mail from Scenery Unlimited, which caused me to order a bunch of parts, including the new counters for Dunn's Buns
