Window Displays

We have two large front windows that Bryce usually puts up displays in. Over the years, I think Brande did the windows for awhile, some of our staff like Carol would work on them and a few others. I can say that you would never see MY butt on display in a front window trying to fight with a display piece. The ledge for these windows displays can't be more than maybe two feet wide, so it is always a challenge. I took some pictures of our front two windows the other day when it was really overcast outside. I thought I had a better chance of getting some type of picture without much glare. I LOVE these old vintage reindeer! I bought them years ago, and they all have this evil look to them, not sure why?

Below are a couple of pictures of the second big window display. This one is just as narrow as the other, but it more accessible and a little easier to display in.
I love the "look" that Bryce did with this window, completely different than the first window. We have about four other front windows. I think two of the dealers in two of the windows (Bryce and Tim) make sure that they not only display their space but the front window as well. Now, if I can figure out a better way to take pictures of our window displays, you all would be looking at clearer pictures!

Love the vintage reindeer, we always had a house in the neighborhood that would decorate with them on the roof, it was the best house on the block, in town for that matter.
I miss houses doing good displays, not those blowing loud puffy things good ol'fashioned plastic snowmen santa and his reindeer.
Looks great Sue!!

Have you tried night pics, you probably have big street lights so it would glare just has much huh?
oh well just a thought...

So funny what you said about your butt in the window. I think of that every time I have to get up there in my display windows to change it out. And I am in a corner store at the intersection of two state highways. Quite a view I am sure.
Your windows are great, whoever does them.

The display is great! I have a booth with a window front. It's hard to take pic because of the glare. A cloudy day is your only hope for a clear shot, but I could see ok.

I love them both but especially the second one - my style my collections - right up my alley. I love unique ideas for window displays - I just saw a florist by my house that did sharp white and glitter white backgrounds with deep red items in the foreground - lovely. Jennifer jennsthreegraces

First of all, I have to point out that the new pic of Baby Bo on your sidebar is just too, too adorable! He is such a looker!

Your window displays are magnificent!

I hate to photograph windows or glass because it's so hard to get rid of the glare!!! However, you did good, Sue! The reindeer are way too cool!!
