What do shoppers want when they’re Christmas-gift seeking?

Selection. Abundant selection.

They aren’t sure what they want. Or what their loved ones will want. Sometimes, they’re even clueless as to what to look for.

That’s why resale consignment, and thrift shops need to pile it on this time of year. Your displays, your social media posts, your in-store signage needs to point to (more…)

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!

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

A simple floor lamp provides the structure for a plastic hanger Christmas tree!  Add a few big balls, drape a strand of multi-colored lights and a star glued onto the lampshade. Keep the light in Christmas!

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


Perfect holiday decor for a consignment or dresale shop says TGtbT.blog

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…

Lots of fun ways to build anticipation

to Christmas in your consignment, resale, thrift shop! Here are some of my found favorites:

I love this one. Imagine it BIG in your window, and the first person in every morning has the honor of snipping off a bit of Santa’s beard (with appropriately decorated special scissors of course) and having their photo posted on your blog or a special Facebook album…

Here’s a way to get folks in, first thing in the morning: Have a “first stepper” reward!

The first (and maybe the last) guideline to follow if you want to sell more bric-a-brac, knick-knacks, dust collectors… whatever you call those home decor “smalls”… is to

show them in use.

Glass bottles? Maintain a store wardrobe of good fake ferns, tulips, or even painted branches to use as props. With a display like this, you’ll sell 5 or 7 bottles at a time!
