In 2007, I produced and hosted a series of six videos for the Gift and Home Channel (now defunct). 
We filmed them during the Farm Chicks Antique Show in Spokane, WA,
and featured several of the vendors as well as the Farm Chicks themselves. 

The 15-minute videos are filled with inspiring and helpful ideas for retail display and design
while working on a budget to build your visual impact.

the lead-in from the GHC site read:

Suffering from display dissatisfaction? 

Well, beloved GHC blogger and known speaker, Debi Ward Kennedy, aka 'the Decorating and Display Diva',*
is here to give you some fantastic ideas for creating unique and noticeable displays in your store. 

In this 6 segment series on displays, 
Debi talks with the founders and vendors of the Farm Chicks Antique Show about sourcing great product,
 as well as inexpensive and unique ways to display product so it gets noticed. 

If you’re looking for new ideas for your store, look no further, 
because Debi’s bringing 'design on a dime' and 'out of the box thinking' right to you! 

Some of the videos are now hosted on YouTube:

*  my tagline at the time - and yes, I was a blonde then ;) 

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
