Ladder Displays Step It Up

A recent retail roadtrip took us to South/Central Texas and some amazing store visits. Two small towns stood out with charming main streets filled with local, independent shops: Gruene and Boerne. Instagram played a big role in planning the Texas trip. I’m so thankful for the retailers, sales reps and gift industry friends that so generously shared suggestions for stores to visit. That’s how I found the Red Rooster in Boerne, TX.

Filled with lovely fixtures and beautifully displayed products, I’ll be sharing some of our pictures from Red Rooster in future posts and magazine articles, but here’s a simple ladder display they use to display different seasonal products throughout the year. I love versatile, simple fixtures and ladders are an all-time favorite.

Ideal for felted birdhouses and lanterns, the display changes with each season.

For the holidays each year, the Red Rooster completely transforms into a Christmas store. Known for the annual Dickens on Main event, Boerne residents and visitors love the holidays!

Step ladders are available in many sizes and styles. Aluminum styles are more industrial and modern, fiberglass styles come in various colors and the traditional wooden ones with the classic paint shelf have a special charm. Mini step ladders are ideal for placing on top of display tables to add height and create additional display space. Step ladders are also popular for trade shows and craft booths as they fold flat for storage and travel and can be used as anchors for larger shelf units by using the rungs as shelf supports.

What else could we display on ladders? Leave us a comment!
