Trial and Error

Trying to stage a picture for an ad really is all about trial and error. Hopefully no one ever sees the errors! Here's a picture with several items we have in the store, but the simplicity is in the colors. The heavy wooden frame, the wicker tray and the topiaries peaking over the top seem to add an element of nature to what might otherwise be a pale picture.

Advertising for 2008

We've been busy staging the store for some pictures to use for some of our ads this year. We are finding that "less is more" holds true for pictures, too. Trying to cram too much into a picture may just cause a lot of confusion---or it did in our eyes. We hope to increase our gift sales, and by doing so get more people into the store to see the other beautiful items we have for their home!

Now, aren't these baby items just the cutest??!!

Christmas Day, First Day of blogging

In keeping with the season I think a picture of the store decked out in Holiday decor is appropriate. However, much of this already looks different as last minute gifts were purchased by customers and both Pam and me. I'm ready to move on to Spring! Much will be changing over the next couple of months as we travel to Chicago to market and revamp the shop with a new look. Stay tuned . . . . .
