We did a major re-do of the shop yesterday and I thought it would be fun to show how our displays come to be. The first thing we did was dismantle the front window display, moving the summer displays of beach and vintage travel to other areas in the store, leaving behind the furniture and the milkglass which we thought would look good in our new display.
The next thing we did was re-arrange all the furniture and add some new pieces.
We kept the vintage yellow kitchen table because we thought yellow was a great bright accent for Halloween. We added a lime green shelf. I love lime green with black!
Now it’s the fun part! Adding all our cute Lori Mitchell figures and other vintage-inspired Halloween items!
We added vintage mystery books and vintage-inspired metal signs.
We added frogs, orange pottery, and rare vintage Halloween treat bags.
Our Lori Mitchell Halloween figures are best-sellers! Hand-painted birdhouses add a nice touch……
We really have fun adding whimsical elements, like this figure sticking out of a vintage cast-iron teapot. We also have another one of these Halloween mice peeking out of a wreath, with the word “eek” all around it.
And finally, our showpiece. I hunt all summer long for the perfect Halloween centerpiece. Last year it was a vintage black typewriter, on which I typed….”it was a dark and stormy night”. This year I found a charming vintage dollhouse, painted gray and black. It is the perfect scale for the Lori Mitchell figures and makes a fabulous focal point!
