My stint as a window dresser
I got the window at Orange Tree Antiques dressed today and it went so quick! It only took me about 20 minutes. I did a trial run and set it all up in my living room, so I knew exactly how I wanted it to look.
OH MY GOSH...Has anyone ever tried to photograph a store window? It was so difficult, I had to go back at night because the glare was so bad during the day
Having a Shabby French window display is unique for Orange Tree Antiques. I don't know if I've ever told you that I am the ONLY shabby vendor in the mall.
The mall has has been open for 17 successful years. This is due in part to the fact that the owner does not allow multiple vendors of the same venue. So, there is only one book vendor, one vintage clothes vendor, one shabby vendor (ME), etc. This means there is something for everyone because of the diverse array of products.
Next month Orange Tree Antiques is doubling in size. They have leased the space next door and they are breaking through the wall.
I'm in the store window for a 6 week rotation, then it will be another vendors turn. I'll share the Before and After pictures of my window projects in my next post.
Now, I don't think it's super duper great but, I think it looks OK for a newbie window dresser.......And having this much fun...Priceless!
