Sometimes you reinvent 
Sometimes it’s something you have reinvented before. The challenge is to continue to see the same merchandise differently, more beautiful, newer and more interesting...each and every time, no matter how many times you have seen it or worked with it.

Think in β€œconceptβ€œ while buying or merchandising- your buys are tighter when you have a concept in mind. Your merchandise will tell a story that is focused and cohesive.

Cross merchandising, it’s a thing... pairing candles and matches both increases sales and adds interest to the mundane candle line up πŸ”₯πŸ”₯
