Display Inspiration

A few more incredible displays to inspire you, from dealers at the Funky Junk Sisters Antique Show & Flea Market.... If you click on the links under each photo, you'll see more photos and info on the web sites & blogs of each dealer.

In the photo above, American Country & Swedish style combine in simply fresh displays from very gifted designer Liz, of Seabold Vintage Market . She needs to write a book!
Stellar use of vertical space in her displays and excellent use of color in displays and products, from Stacie Tate at Tate's Totes
More Americana with a touch of Shabby Chic combine to present a front porch feel, from the talented Amy & Khris at Today's Country Store
Another front porch scene, complete with swing, from the talented duo of John & Bob of JOHNBob cooljunk (no online resources, sorry - but look for them at Washington & Oregon shows!)
A warm, welcoming display of primitives from Luann & display stylist Tammy at Folk Art Gatherings.

Thank you to each of these vendors for permission to share the photos I took at the show. I believe we can all learn from each other, not by copying something we have seen but by being inspired and then letting our own imaginations take us to the next level. I also know it is important to acknowledge the skilled creations & presentation of artisans such as these... they don't do it for the applause, but they do appreciate getting it!

Now, go create something new in your store that will inspire your customers...

Your display seminar was amazing . . . you were very inspirational and your words of wisdom were much appreciated!! You are truly one of the most giving women I have met in a long time! Can't wait to see what you are up to at the Barn House in July . . . I saw your sneek peeks and I love the direction :) liz


my take on retail visual design:

"The thing is, retail design is driven by psychology. It is by manipulating space, visuals, lighting, sound, smell, and mood that we influence customers to enter, stay, browse, buy, and return. It is an endless exercise in change, endurance, growth, education, and imagination that enables retailers to stay on top of their game and at the forefront of their customer's minds. Yes, what you sell IS important - but even the very best merchandise won't sell at full price if it's presented in torn boxes on dirty shelves in a store that is too crowded to turn around in. Visual impact is a huge part of business, and utilizing the principles that have been proven to work can help you build a better business." ~ DWK
