Now see what happens when it’s so darn cold outside that no one wants to leave their house and come shopping and I am left all alone to my own devices in the store?!?!?! PART II

I had originally displayed these vintage blue canisters on the blue step back cupboard.  They looked ‘okay’ on there, but just blended in too much.  So, I decided to move them to this little black shelf on our newest brown primitive table.

I’m really liking this red/turquoise color combination!

Decided this big turquoise platter ‘needed’ this red glitter heart!

This is how this rearranging project got started. 

I decided I wanted to have the scrapbooking section back by the counter.  So, I had to move the stuff that was there to make room for it.  Then I had to figure out where to put the stuff I moved!  At one point mid-day there were five big pieces of furniture just sitting in the middle of the store and I had NO IDEA where I wanted to put it all!

So, I took a break and had my lunch and pondered the possibilities. 

Moved this white shelf (previously in the scrapbook section) to the pink/yellow section and used it to display an assortment of gift items, flanked by the two card racks.

Then the middle section in the previous post finally fell into place. 

A few new ‘little groupings’:

So, did I earn my 25 cents this week?!?!?!

Sophie’s is PACKED with lots of great holiday gifts!

All ready for the Holiday Open House this weekend, Sophie has the store SUPER stocked with great gift and holiday home decor items! 

Pretty pink tea pot and vintage tea luncheon set.

Handmade snowballs are fun to decorate with for the holidays.

YUMMY!  Locally crafted from earth friendly soy wax, these pecan rolls and cinnamon roll votives smell absolutely heavenly.  Also just in are mini cinnamon bun tarts and tart melter gift sets.

Gift mugs make a great secret pal or co-worker gift.

How about a pretty little tree to sit on your desk for the holidays?

Picture frames, journals and note card sets are always a welcome little gift.

Pretty decorated jar candles are great gifts too

Set of three little table top trees are a sublte color that would work for a Thanksgiving centerpiece AND Christmas.

Bath and body gift basket, gift boxed candles, filled candy jars and one of a kind handcrafted snowman on a stick.
