I snapped this pic of the side window at Trader Joe’s. The only people who’d see this are those parked on that side of the building, like me.

But that doesn’t mean (more…)

Kate's mailbox has lots of interesting questions at TGtbT.blogHow to present a store full of… well, LOTS of STUFF. Great question came into my mailbox! And it came another time too!

 

 

I have an odd question for you. Me and my assistant can’t seem to agree to people prefer a shop that’s neat and tidy or a Thrift Shop that is full and cluttered? Could you shed some light on the subject? –Kenneth Droneburg   Seton Family Store, Manager, http://www.setoncenterinc.org

Hi Kenneth,
I think it depends

Keeping your eyes open while out and about, you can gather some great ideas that would be helpful in your shop… especially

use-every-inch-you-pay-for stratagems!

Here, under a rack of short clothing items, the shopkeepers have gathered a trayful of household items for a clever little display.

Using every inch of your consignment shop space, from TGtbT.com's blog

What’s that down below? I must have it!

Consignment, resale and thrift shops need to maximize the use of their space

Notice that the merchandise is NOT directly on the floor, where it would look like a mistake. This shop, Bon Bon Vintage, has constructed a platform to use… but you could use a mini-shelf, child’s stool, or even a small pedestal to elevate and highlight a few irresistible goodies!

Do you swing in your shop? What’s a swing shop? From the TGtbT.com Glossary of Resale Terms:

Swing Shop: An area dedicated to selling time-sensitive featured items. It can be as small as a single rack, or as large as the entire center of your shop. This area will generally have a much higher sales-per-square-foot figure. For more, see pages 20-23 of Shop Sizzle.

Kate once again, out and about, coming across some cool ideas for resale and consignment shops.

This time, it was at a shop on AMI, which Florida-beach lovers will recognize as the initials of Anna Maria Island, and a long-time store, Mister Roberts Resortwear (just the name tells you how long this shop’s been in business…)

Here’s what I snapped a pic of: their screen-door earring display.

Earring display with a twist that cuts down on theft, on the AuntieKate.wordpress.com blog

Well, yes, you’re thinking, but we’ve seen this before, Kate, so what’s the deal? The deal is: these earrings are not easily shoplifted. Look closer:

Auntie Kate shows you how these earrings won't be easily shoplifted.

See? The earring cards aren’t hung on the screening… they’re attached via Swiftach loops to a wire, so snatch-and-grabbers will go home, thankfully, empty-pocketed.

Thanks to Mister Roberts Resortwear for allowing me to share this idea with you. If you’re on AMI, their address is 5330 Gulf Drive, Holmes Beach FL (no, they didn’t name he town after Auntie Kate LOL)
