It’s time to share one of my favorite Halloween retail displays for 2012: The display is from The Shabby Cottage in Oregon City, OR. Surprisingly, in a year when orange (tangerine tango) was the color-of-the-year, most of my favorite Halloween displays were primarily black and white. The round spider web table topper is the perfect accent for the drop leave sides on the unique table/cart. Nice job Faye!
Another fun Facebook find was Miss I Have Hangups, an entry in the Vote for your Favorite Scarecrow event with proceeds to benefit the Lexington, MO Food Pantry. The scarecrow is made almost entirely from apparel hangers and is the entry from Limrick’s Fine Things.
Bold colored ropes and ceiling medallions are an unusual combo for apparel hangrod displays, but what a fun statement it makes at Swilden’s in Paris, France!I know you are going to ask, so I’ll go ahead and answer … the rope can be wrapped around vertical pipes to keep the hangrods from swinging.
One of the more frequent requests I receive from clients and blog followers is for ideas for displaying plush animals. When I spotted this display fixture at the Sea World store in the Orlando airport, I hung up on a phone call to take a picture with my camera.
Here’s a closer view.
As you would expect, Retail Details blog is a resource for visual merchandising students. We work closely with several schools to provide content for class discussions and we show up in many footnotes for college projects. Recently, some students sent me this picture of a store window assignment to thank me for sharing the “inspiration”. I’m not one of their instructors, but I would give them a good grade for execution. However, I would like to see them put their own twist on the window installation. (See original image posted on the blog in 2011 - click here, will open in a new window).
Stay display inspired!
