There is an art to hanging apparel- creating a cohesive presentation of apparel is not easy when dealing with single rail fixtures. The art is in the cohesiveness, the  wearability, the color combinations. @sweetsurrenderbakersfield the rail of black, blush and putty works with a pop of plaid. All meant to be worn together and hung together ❤️

Sometimes in order to sell something you need an example, as in: “this is how you use the @twoscompany paint magnifying glass” 
Sales people aren’t going to be around for every sale... make it obvious what’s in the box

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.

“Display should conjure your imagination and create magic”❤️ I have always said, display does not need to be on a Disney level, it needs to be creative and tell a story

Think in “concept“ 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 🔥🔥

Lesson #25 think outside of the box! Demigod retailer @rogersgardens took open backed bookcases and suspended them from the ceiling. This seamlessly creates floor space and whimsy!
