Spring Cleaning...Pun Intended

I've spent the last few days re-working our bath display!  Our selection of Bath & Body products continues to expand, so I needed to come up with a better arrangement to accomodate new and existing merchandise.  Striving for uniformity, I pulled together a bunch of mismatched white furniture and used that as a base.  The wall color was a really light grey - which just wasn't cutting it - so I painted the walls black!  The risk paid off and the dark paint proved to be the perfect backdrop for the crisp white furniture and the brightly colored packaging on our soaps and other bath-related products!

I love the way the white furniture looks against the black wall.  I hung a cool vintage Bicycle Shop sign above and used vintage style apothecary lights to shine down on the shelves.

The vintage sink filled with glass "bubbles" is always a big hit with customers!

They really look like bubbles!

Poppy Petunia is our exclusive in-house line of soaps.  They're definitely one of our best sellers!  Rainwater Moss, Forbidden Apple, Coconut Lemongrass, and Grapefruit Lily are among the dozen or so scents we have in stock right now.

I love this over-sized cloche filled with some of our soaps!  Anyone can do this in their bathroom - even with bars of soap from the dollar store!

Blue Daisies...Only $1 each!

The shelves are filled with glass bottles with vintage style apothecary labels.  You can display them as is or fill with your favorite liquid soap.

More Bottles! $5 each

Love the packaging and graphics on our new bath products!

Mini-Soaps are great to throw into a gift bag!

I'm obsessed with the color of these spondylus shells.  Even more orange in person!

This lady had been around the block a few times, but there's nothing a can of sray paint can't fix!  I think the blue really pops against the black wall.
