So MANY choices for simple and effective (that means people will TALK about your windows and take selfies in front of them and bring their guests in just to see!) holiday windows that are easy and inexpensive, I have to divide the inspirational photos I have into three days!

Here in Part 3, we’re on my favorite window topic for Christmas and assorted holidays: Tis the Season! If you use a winter theme (yes, even if you’re in tropical climes) you amuse, you do not (more…)

Today, let’s talk Santa Claus as holiday window decor.

How about Santa’s wardrobe on a clothesline? Don’t let Santa hang you out to dry, shop resale for the holidays. Or We’re Santa’s backyard. Or Santa gets ready for his run here (The illustration is a purchasable backdrop you can see here.) This could be an actual clothesline, or cut outs on your window glass.

Don't let Santa hang you out to dry

Of course Santa SHOPS here: alter the Santa Stop sign you can find locally, or make your own, oversized sign. Adding some suggestions below ifs fun, if you wish…

Santa shops resale of course!

If you have a talented window painter on tap, this template from Dover Publications could be wonderful… as an outline, or filled in with touches of red and green and a nice golden star!

Today, let’s talk Christmas trees as holiday window decor.

Another way to use hangers, especially perfect if you don’t want to waste floor space. This can hang flat against the window glass.

Another “flat” window display, especially good as used here for a tabletop display of home goods, accessories, or anything that looks good highlighted against a white tablecloth.

Paper cutouts are simple and basically FREE, a resale shop's favorite price, says Kate Holmes of TGTbT.com

Tomorrow and the next day, Santa windows and my absolute favorite (they will be yours too, just wait!) seasonal windows. Stay tuned…

Can I take a moment to point out all the wonderful things that Bella Grande has done simply by taking this photo and posting it online?

First, this is a quick way to make a focal point within your shop. Two dress forms, some risers for the accessories, and a 2-way of themed merchandise tempts the browser to stop and look… and buy!

Any ideas for display windows with small panes? Sooo hard to create colorful window displays with the checkerboard across both of my front windows. I am also on the inside elbow of an L-shaped plaza. I have to work extra extra hard to be seen in the corner for 6 years. To make it worse, my new neighbor is a womens clothing shop that has SEVEN display windows using jumbo colorful Chinese lanterns for her pop of color, seasonal window displays.

Kate replies:

I think it’s great that your new neighbor is calling attention in your direction! How about playing up (more…)

What’s the most important thing people need to know about your B&M shop before they come visit?

That will help them come visit?

Where you are, of course. And what to look for when they get near… and what to look for is… what your shop looks like from the road/ sidewalk!

Bonus points if you show a bit of what’s inside, your phone number, and a nice welcoming OPEN sign, and open DOOR!

Like Seva’s photo here: (more…)
