We're taking a Christmas Break

Thanks to everyone who came in during the past few weeks!  We sold nearly every Christmas item, and even have some bare shelves.  It's a good thing we have some extra things hanging around upstairs, we'll need them to fill in until we go to market in January.  In the meantime, we will be closed until Monday, January 3, 2011.  

Don't wander off too far, we have a few projects to finish up next week---stay tuned for some "before and afters".

Top 10 Gifts at Madison Lane

If you still have a few gifts to buy, like I do, here's a quick list of some popular gifts we have in the shop:

1.  A nativity set.  If you don't have one yet, this one is not too ornate, but not too simple.

2.  Everyone loves a cool paperweight.

3.  Monogrammed leather accessories, and in a large selection of colors.

4.  Archipelago's Pomegranate bath and body, candles and also some sets available.

5.  Do you get teased for being a re-gifter?  Now you can be proud of it with these gift bags!

6.  The tea drinker in your family will love Tea Forte'.  We have several gift sets to choose from.

7.  The special "treasure chest" is just beautiful in person.

8.  A jewelry box to hold all those special pieces.  It has a double shelf inside.

9.  A great assortment of jewelry she won't see in any other shops in town!

10.  Sometimes a good laugh is the best gift.  These towels come as a pair.

Remember, we will gift wrap or make sure you leave with your gift in a pretty bag, ready to put under the tree.

Keeping track of custom orders

There are various workorder forms one can fill out for custom orders, but a picture really is worth a thousand words.  Not only do we use our Minutes Matter computer program for curtain renderings and room arrangements, but also for workorders for other custom jobs.   We emailed the above diagram to our one of our fabricators, and she not only has a written description, but a picture to refer back to.  It may not look complicated, but the above pillows and dustruffle belong in three different rooms.  We can quickly become confused without something visual.

Just after this order was taken, another client decided to finish her bedroom.  We used the Minutes Matter program to do show her exactly where each fabric was to be used:

This was actually the second rendering we did after we made a fabric change.  The styles stayed the same, and it was a quick fix to see it with the new fabrics.  This picture was sent along with the measurements to have the comforter fabricated.  

See how Madison Lane Interiors can help you visualize your next custom order!
