In The Window

Last week I did both window displays on the same day, the second one was a little rushed, so I just threw plenty of animal print at it, not always popular but always eye catching. I was after a total change from the very autumnal colours I'd chosen the previous few weeks so went for denim and blue.

We were very fortunate to have had a large amount of Jaeger clothing donated so I used some of that, it was all sizes 8 and 10 so it was my duty to try it all on first but it drowned me so onto the model it went!











We ate at the restaurant across from the shop at the weekend so we had a peep in the window as we passed. It does not look like this now, I really hope someone does something with it this week while I'm not there!

  1. Another fabulous job. I'm not surprised some of the items have sold already. X

    1. Thanks. I try to put a mixture in the window, some of our £1.99 items in with the more expensive things.

  2. Oooh, I do like that tea set, that's a beauty! And that (navy? and white) coat looks interesting too. You did a fab job if the rate in which things get sold when you do windows is anything to go by xxx

    1. I love the tea set, if I had somewhere for it I think it would be in this house already!

      The navy and white coat was one of the items I tried on, it's a Jaeger one but was too big, someone bought it the morning after I did the window. I thought it was a bargain at £14.99 but after poking about online to see how much it cost originally I saw one had sold via Oxfam online for £50!

  4. I am always amazed at the lovely items you get in your shop. Here it seems like all that is in our charity and second hand shops is less than desirable.

    God bless.

    1. We do have some very generous donors, and in this age of online selling and car boot sales we're very grateful for that. On the other hand we do get plenty to sell on to the rag man, it's all better than it going into the bin though.

  5. Wow-you do get some lovely donations. Our favourite restaurant is the turkish reataurant -the chef was so nice about altering dishes to suit my preferred taste. Hope you and Dan are doing some nice things this week.Catriona

    1. Thanks, we do get some nice things. I think we benefit from having a forecourt where people can pull their car up, many shops in the square don't have that.

      I've heard really good things about Anatolia, we don't eat out that much in the town but that place always seems busy (assuming that's the one you mean).

    2. Thanks-we could not remember its name! Where did you go for your meal with friends? Catriona
