Is it just me... or is Christmas suddenly upon us?
Even though I start buying for the store in March for some of our indented ranges, I am the first to admit that this year, I still feel that I am behind the 8-ball.
And although I am never one to dress the store for Christmas before mid-November, I am possibly a little later than I would like to be. I like to do a complete change about, so that suddenly everything sparkles in quite a different way for our regular visitors.
I thought you might like a little peak at some of the store displays.
Yes, 24 little (actually, not so little) advent houses grace the front window.
It seemed like such a great idea at the time.
Until Harriet & I were probably only seven or eight houses in, and I realised I possibly didn't have quite the same sized merchandising team as anthropologie. Just the same ambition!
A little bit of sparkle always goes a long way.
In this case, some beautiful vintage glass decorations, a washi tape bunting, some ivy-wrapped branches & an old bottle.
Starting to feel the pressure, it was a case of utilising whatever was on hand, and it became a bit of a 'voila' moment!
A stack of old drawers & crates in our other front window, hopefully inspires a few gift ideas.
And now there is the rest of the store to pretty up.
By Christmas Eve I should be getting there!
