Looking for display ideas for the holidays?
Snowmen make cute store window props. Accessorized accordingly, they can even be left up after Christmas. Make your own snowmen out of anything round that can be altered and stacked in various sizes. Image courtesy of Beehive Co-op.
Candelabras and candle sticks are ideal for featuring small round items, like ornaments during the holidays. This also makes a cute Easter display with eggs. I got this idea from French Nest, a lovely shop in Orlando, FL and also located inside one of our newer favorite stores, Adjectives Market in Altamonte Springs.
On our recent trip through NY, CT and MA, it was exciting to find many small towns that had at least 5 independent retailers to visit. One of the larger towns on our New England tour, New Canaan CT was having a chamber-of-commerce sponsored retail & restaurant event on the day we visited. Sadly, many of the retailers were not open after 7pm even though the event was scheduled until 9pm. However, we found several nice shops with displays worthy of notice.
Barely open a year, The Summer House is a lovely home decor store with furnishings, gifts and art. It is one of those stores where everything has a place and looks like it belongs there. You can imagine each item in your home — a tribute to good merchandising. A favorite display piece is the drum pictured above.
We fell in love with their long credenza display, too. Next door to The Summer House is a stationery and gift store, M Milestones. One of the busier stores on our stroll through town, M Milestones had a clever hanging cell phone display, but unfortunately the picture did not come out well.
One of the most frequent display topic requests are ideas for jewelry displays. While in New Canaan, we saw this bracelet display made from paint rollers at the upstairs shop, Caren Forbes. We have to admit that although we have created entire stores full of displays using items found in home improvement stores, it never occurred to us to use spare paint rollers for bracelet displays. Bravo, Caren Forbes!
