Here is my little table in the wine tasting room. I managed to get most of my new holiday merchandise on display by Friday afternoon, as I had hoped. It is quite shocking what a person can do when they put their mind to it.
There is still some tweeking to be done. I need to make another "present" for the left hand side of the table, where I will stack one of my baskets of zippy bags and eyeglasses cases, then the tray of boxy bags can be brought closer to the front of the table. I can see that raising the level of a couple of the displays is a really effective technique in presentation. I am learning!
The little basket on the left holds what is left of my Fall line: one zippy bag and four eyeglass cases. My son in law refused to let me take them home. "It's still Fall," he said. Next week that basket will be full of red and green cosmetics bags and eyeglases cases. The fabrics I am using are Fig Tree, the Cinnamon Stars collection. Vintage by now! Oh, and I made a couple of camo boxy bags for the guys, just to see how they do. My little student saw them down in the studio when she was with me this week, and dropped several hints that she thought they were very cool, and shouldn't just be for guys.
Grand total of production for the week: 13 tissue holders, 6 table runners, five sets of mug rugs, six boxy bags. In the works for completion next week: 6 zippy cosmetics bags, 6 eyeglasses cases, four more sets of mug rugs.
