One of the best best best things about having a brick and mortar retail shop is the merchandising.
Sadly, because I'm so run-off-my-feet busy these days, windows are taking a back seat on the ole priority list.
Thankfully I have two GORGEOUS staff members who are pretty darned keen to pick up my slack.
This month, I tasked my girls to each tackle a window display.
I gave them a $60 budget and free reign to interpret spring as best they could. I dangled the reward of a gift card to the shop, but the truth is, I can't pick so everybody wins this round.
I think they did a pretty amazing job, but you tell me.
I'd love to know which is your favourite.

Since it's always sunny in Almonte (I shit you not), my windows are nearly impossible to photograph, but here goes nuthin'.
Window #1 // Spring Flowers by Jessie
Jessie's window started with her looking around the shop to see what she might use. I only hire the thriftiest, most creative employees and Jess is no exception. One day I arrived in the store to find her in a sea of little white butterflies and yarn. I had no idea what she was up to, but it turned out so sweet. I love this window.
Window #2 // Spring Showers by Tamara
Tam's window is made using Kleenex flowers hot glued to paper lanterns and margarine tubs (clouds), silver 3-dimensional raindrops made from silver paper and staples, spray-painted rain boots acquired from our local thrift shop, a rainbow tie-dye inspired backdrop (a thrifted sheer from the Hub) and blue puddles made from bristol board and fabric.
Which is your favourite!?
