Anthropologie Display Ideas!*!*!

I've been holding out on you!!!  Here are a few FaB DisPlaY Ideas from my visit to the Anthropologie Store in Edina, Minnesota, a few weeks ago...  I was sooooooo inspired!!!  My two favorite Anthro Stores for display ideas are this one in Edina, Minnesota and the Highland Park Store in the Chicago land suburbs...

If you've never been ~ You definitely need to put this on your "must visit" list!*!*!
ALL the Anthropologie Stores have these AwEsoMe, over-the-top Door Hardware...  It sets the tone for your whole unique shopping experience...


I was sooooo inspired by this vignette...  It really had a funky twist to it - being inside a clothing store setting...  (click on pics to enlarge for detail)...  I was inspired by this vignette & am visualizing on a  "spin-off  version" of this at the Northwind Perennial Farm Antique Garden Show,  June 11 & 12...  Check my side bar for more details... ~ It is MY FaVoRiTe Show of the entire summer!!!



This small size wall of sort helps define the area...  It was actually the back of a large hutch!  I like using old doors/screens/windows as a backdrop at my sales...  It helps one visualize what an item might look like in a space at home...


Here is an example of just a simple smaller-sized chippy screen with patina, helping define the space ~ adding character... 


OMG!*!*!  These "plaster creations" were just AmAziNg!!!!!!!!
I'm hoping to try my hand at this for the SaLe at my Home, here in Cedarburg on MAY 22nd...
 *** Like I really have time for this!!!!!!!!! ***

  2. Jeanine I agree 100%... I am an Anthro girl for sure!!! Every time I enter I am in awe. It is not often that a display (creation) can stop me in my tracks, but the gals at Anthro do it over and over again.

    I try on a daily basis to recreate my store to stop my guests in their tracks... inspiration, inspiration, inspiration. That's what we all strive for, right?

    Love your post,
