Holiday windows

Here is a shot of the other window. This side reads "We're going for Baroque" I decided not to mount the other wig. I thought it was visually more interesting to have it on the stool- like she got tired of wearing it and took off after the party...


I made our wigs with chicken wire, cotton batting, and spanish moss. It would have a lot cleaner with cotton but you have to use what is available. Kate suggested the frames as "faces" and choose the artwork for the window and interior frames.

If you ever have the desire to make your own Marie Antoinette wig- check out this site.

Holiday windows

We finished our holiday windows this week. The theme this year is "Baroque". The lettering in this window reads- "If it ain't Baroque don't fix it". The phrase was Sara's choice and she originally designed the lettering for the phrases but we decided to go with vinyl. It was an easier and less time consuming process- not to mention it's been freezing cold the last few days!

Mark made the gold frames for us and I made the "wig". It was inspired by the Comme des Garcons Spring 2009 show.

Holiday Gift Guide

Well it's almost the beginning of the holiday season! The Christmas tree was brought down to the Marketplace today and we finished our holiday windows.

Every year, we get customers that need a little extra help in the gift giving department. We thought we might inspire you with a few of our ideas...Nichole put together this set for Mom, for under $50 dollars- ruffle bottom scarf and gloves from Tulle, with a pair of fun tights from Hue. Add a gift card for lunch at Leunig's and you're done!

You can see that we got in a lot of sweaters for this sale. Come early for the best deals and selection!

Sara created this patriotic reminder for the store yesterday. It inspired me to also wear red, white and blue to the polls today. There were no lines at my polling place but there was an air of excitement and urgency.
