Displaying Hair Bows

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

I have a kids clothing store that is fun and funky! We have zebra ceilings, pink flying pigs, and a different color in each themed room. We sell a lot of hairbows that are just as wild! My question, what is a cute idea of displaying all the bows? My area to use is 7 feet tall and 3 feet wide. – Tracie, TX

You definitely have a lot of options when it comes to displaying accessories in your store, no matter how wild the decor! If you are looking to display a large amount of hair bows all at one time, consider some different types of floor displays.

You could use 2X6 grid panel and attach legs to it so that it stands freely. Then you can attach peghooks of any size to display your bows. Another option is a rotating slatwall unit. Just attach some slatwall peghooks and you will be able to have a display that rotates for customer convenience.

There is also a rotating peg displayer that has 4 tiers where you can hang your hair bows. It rotates and is very light and portable so you can move it around to suit the changing display needs of your store. There is also a counter-top version that is perfect for those impulse buys at the check out.

You could also use swivel clips to clip the hair ribbons and bows and hang them anywhere in your store. Since your store is fun and funky, don’t be afraid to go wild with any of your displays! – Store Supply Guy

Grid Panel Question

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

I need help re-decorating the displays for my vendor/tent shop. I’m on a budget and am thinking of adding Self-Standing Grid-Wall systems. Items must be easy to move & set-up since my store is set-up at horse shows. I am a one-person shop and I sell Spanish Flamenco Equestrian and Dance Dresses. Could these work for me? – Maura

For any retailer that is on the go and traveling to trade shows to sell their wares, grid panels and accessories are a portable and easy to use system to “set up shop” anywhere you go! Both slat-grid panels and square grid panels can be attached to legs or rolling bases to create an attractive and enticing display.

Use a combination of accessories like shelving, brackets, peghooks, waterfalls, baskets, hangrails and even lights to show off your merchandise. Dresses could be displayed attractively by using waterfall faceouts, or by using a quarter-circle hangrail attached to two panels connected into a “V” shape.

Bright colors will stand out against chrome, white or black panels, and set up and breakdown are easy. However you set up your traveling store with grid panels, use your imagination! There are thousands of combinations that are affordable and sure to help you sell your merchandise. – Store Supply Guy

Shipping Question

Do you ship to the U.S. Virgin Islands? – Doris

Yes, we do ship to the U.S. Virgin Islands.  However, SSW only ships to the Virgin Islands by Parcel Post through the USPS.  We would have to specially quote the freight on your order because our computer system is not set up to do this automatically.  If you give us a call with your order, we can tell you what your shipping costs will be.

Greeting Card Rack Question

Friday, May 21st, 2010

On your greeting card rack, what size greeting cards does it hold? I need some to fit 5×7 inch cards. –  Therese, MN

The pockets on the SSW greeting card rack will fit a 5X7 inch greeting card.  They measure 5.5 inches wide, and there are 9 inches between the bottom of one pocket and the bottom of the pocket above it.  This leaves plenty of space for your 5X7 inch cards.  Greeting Card racks are an easy way to display your cards, and the countertop version can be used to easily set up an impulse buy section close to your cash register. – Store Supply Guy

Bag Question

Saturday, April 24th, 2010

I have been selling all of my merchandise using the same paper bags for years.  I own a boutique and would like to do something that shows off my merchandise in a better light.  Do you have any suggestions? – Jackie, CA

We suggest trying one of our new boutique products that are higher quality and may show your merchandise in a more glamorous light. Check out our boutique shopping bags or touch up any bag with boutique patterned tissue paper. –Store Supply Guy
