The Art of Display

August 29, 2012

My new partners and I are seriously powering through with all of the details for our new storefront…nothing like a tight deadline to keep things moving! So far, I’m totally amazed by how smoothly things keep falling into place and we’ve had so many serendipitous moments along the way. Our renovations to the store itself are starting to come together and I cannot wait to share the final results with you in a few very short weeks! We’re almost ready to get to the fun part of setting up shop and displaying our wares throughout Spruce Collective…obviously far more fun than the business side of things! It will likely be a wee bit overwhelming once we unload all of our vintage finds and new products into the space but for now I’m collecting inspirational retail spaces like these to stay motivated throughout the process…

Thank you all for your encouraging words and positive thoughts along the way! It’s always great to hear so feel free keep the comments and vibes coming! I’m finding it extremely hard to believe that school starts in only a few days! Tuesday morning will come mighty fast and I haven’t had much time to wrap my mind around it, to tell you the truth. I do hope that the sun comes back out though and that we can possibly squeeze in one last beach day before we’re back to routine for good. What do you have planned for the long weekend?

Pictures like these make me want to line my belongings up in rows. So beautiful and practical too. :)

I agree, Ginger! I’ve always been a sucker for organized shelves….if only my closets looked so neat and tidy!

I love all these clean lines – esp. all the white bottles!

How can your store not be beautiful with you guys, and all these great inspirational pics! Having a store has always been a dream…I’m inspired by you all! Looking forward to seeing it next time I’m on the mainland!

I love every one of your inspiration photos! It must be so exciting, Lily :-) I can’t believe school is almost back as well – my daughter grads this year, and I’m not quite sure I’m ready for that… eeek!!! This weekend I’m praying for sunshine, because we’re headed out to pick blackberries. If that doesn’t happen this weekend, we’ll miss out on them this year…

Graduating? You look far too young for that, Sheila! What a busy year ahead for you! Mmm, blackberries sound delicious…come on sunshine!

Just drove by the new storefront yesterday and it looks amazing! Cannot wait for you guys to open your doors, I’m sure you’re going to be a big hit!

It looks gorgeous! I am in love with the shelves full of beautiful, simple, white pottery!
