Inspiration is Everywhere 

I love shopping shows and other stores, I get so many ideas….and get depressed at all the creativity I sometimes feel I DON’T have!  

At the risk of depressing you too (LOL) let me share some of what I saw today:

Able’s in Huntsville, Texas set up the coolest entry to a booth. Just made me want to go in…then out…in….out, well, you get the point!

Another homey example. 

Only in Texas does this make sense, but I love it – note the glitter this gal is sporting! This was at a great store, Antique Queens in Rockdale, Texas! Love their creativity!

What a great way to take the customer upward!

Ok, well this one’s just for me because I love reindeer! I want it too!!!

Just a fun collection all over the place! This is at French Marketplace in Navasota, Texas.

Stay designed inspired–even I surprise myself sometimes. And you will too! Just try it!

Fun with Friends

2015/02/img_0518.jpg
I’m a curious sort. I love to meet people and learn a little about their store, market, whatever. I have used a variety of ways to meet fellow retailers from chatting at market to Facebook, Twitter and now Instagram. One of my fave retail “compadres” is the crew from Creative Touch & Candy Corner in Hutto, Texas. Yes, the home of the Hutto Hippos (that story I’ll save for another blog entry).
It’s great seeing other stores, sharing product info, display ideas and enjoying the camaraderie of others in the same retail boat – filled with all those ups and downs!
So, if your ever in Hutto, Texas stop in and meet my friends Matt, Kim & mom, Janet. Oh, and get some taffy – they’ve got an incredible assortment!
