As I've mentioned before, I don't like theme windows, and I really don't like novelty ones, which is what we usually have for occasions such as Hallowe'en (although I haven't been in charge of doing the windows on previous occasions). Thankfully for me, the new manager isn't a fan either so we engineered a sightly more subtle approach. We neither have the stock nor the space to save outfits for the window, everything is put together from what we have in the shop on the day, which makes it more fun, even if we're not as professional as some charity shops you see these days. I'm not sure it's going to be popular with the other manager or volunteers but there you go. If someone wants to redo it then they can feel free!
The window we ended up with is not the one we started with, we had a black net bed canopy surrounding the bric a brac table but it was sold within minutes, even though we put a price on it that we thought no-one would pay, but they did so what do we know? I rescued some old books from the rag bag to add something to the display too. No pictures of the full window on this occasion as the glare from outside was just too much. Here we go -
I allowed pumpkins and a witches hat!
Some decanters and glittery potions
Terrifying pumpkin activity
Enchanting outfits! I have been reading a book about magicians in the late 1800's, I think it may have influenced me. I imagine this lady to be a poisoner!
We were running low on purple items so I was pleased to find a little Primark 49p purple brooch to accessorise the furry coat!
I'm quite interested to see if we receive any comments about it.
