Changing the Displays

I've spent all day today changing the displays in the shop.  Not a stitch of knitting did I get done! I re-priced some items, moved things around, and added some new stuff.

I took all the table linen off the clothes horse and put on the scarves and fingerless gloves...

I moved things around on the pecanwood shelves...

...and changed the display on the welsh dresser...

I moved the old Royal typewriter up from the floor and made a display round it on the little card table...

Typewriter table

...put a basket of teddies and other things on the toybox with the Asterix books...

Bears and books

...and changed the shop window radically.  I put in some bootees that had already been in there, but on some shelves and not really noticeable, and added a display of buttons.

I also gathered up all the little crochet flowers and put them in a crystal rose bowl...

I've made most prices cheaper, although not the half-price they were in the sale.  I hope the new display will bring people in, I haven't sold a thing for days now...


  1. Love the little vintage airer!

    Cute xx

  2. I love raking through collections of buttons. I have a whole drawer-full of them. Don't know what I'll do with them, but Im sure they will come in useful.

    I hope you make lots of sales today, you should, it all looks gorgeous.


  3. I know I've said it before....but I wish I was just that bit nearer....

  4. The shop looks really good I work retail and this time of year is really slow but it will pick up.if I make it a crossed the vast ocean again I will pop in for a visit.
