August 2015: Paddywax Candles, Gifts & Decorative Accessories and Retail Details blog join forces to sponsor the Stores That Shine! store display contest. Brick and mortar stores in the US are invited to submit images of displays that include Paddywax Candles for a chance to win a bundle of prizes including free product, a magazine feature, a visual merchandising consultation and magazine subscriptions.

Need some ideas and inspiration for candle displays? Here are a few from Paddywax Candles social media pages and pinterest boards.
Showrooms at the gift shows are great resources for display ideas. Take notes and pictures when at market. Many of the showrooms and vendors post pictures on instagram and facebook, so follow your favorites for more inspiration!
Browse magazines, blogs and gift guides for display theme inspirations.
Photograph your displays with social media in mind and search instagram for flatlay ideas that provide inspiration for display combinations and interesting use of props.
Customers like to see products in use and styled in realistic settings, so they can envision the merchandise in their homes.
Cross merchandise brands and products for visual interest. Contest entries may contain products from other lines mixed with Paddywax Candles.
Submissions will be accepted through October 9, 2015 and the winner will be announced on December 1, 2015.
GOOD LUCK in the contest. We can’t wait to see your STORES THAT SHINE!
