Refresh Your Store with Unexpected Finds

Before you shop wholesale, walk your store from the customer’s eye. Don’t dive so deep in one vendor that your store looks like the vendor’s showroom. It is OK to step­ from a vendor if it’s no longer working. Experiment! It is OK to fail. Give it a try. Perhaps be surprised by the unexpected! Don’t feel pressure; it’s an ongoing incremental process, never static. Take your seat at administration’s table. Read on to discover curated product picks.

Tour reflections from Blue Anderson, store buyer and manager at Columbia River Maritime Museum and Museum Store Association, second VP:

 

  • Tell a story with the textiles and other objects that reflect your institution, i.e. replicate your wallpaper as a historic house
  • Look in different show areas for ideas, key pieces that may not break the bank, and items you can use for display
  • Take the “feel” of an exhibit and add shapes, colors, textures, and surprise elements that expand on the exhibit
