You already have displays in your store. And in most cases, they are quilts – just quilts. Look at your store through new eyes. Turn each quilt into a statement. Add fabrics, patterns, notions, and books that have a similar feel. Don’t make your customers search for what they need!
The Shannon booth featured Cuddle fabric on a Bosal chair. What grandma wouldn’t want this for their favorite princess?
An adult version is masculine and sleek…
This display makes a statement. It shows that Cuddle can be used as more than backings for quilts – but display a quilt with Cuddle on the back as well.
Stacy of Buttermilk Basin created a display that was so inviting you wanted to stay and browse – after all, you don’t want to miss anything! She sprinkled fat quarter bundles, threads, and patterns throughout – displayed in baskets, bowls, and tin containers that fit the theme beautifully.
Terry Atkinson’s booth made everyone smile. She created the perfect backdrop for pictures. Why not create one for your summer Row by Row Experience or Shop Hops? Invite customers to share their pics on Facebook.
Not only does this create a party atmosphere, your customers will leave with a warm, fuzzy feeling – and want to come back for more!
Start summer by viewing your store through a new set of eyes. You’ll be surprised how easy it is to enhance the projects you already have on display. Make sure you have everything you need to create the quilt in stock – and displayed with the quilt! If it uses a Creative Grids ruler, for instance, display it by the quilt. You can have merchandise displayed in more than one place!
Be creative and make YOUR shop shine!
