fixtures" the article states. Hmmmm...I want to call it sentimentality.
I have a HUGE island of shelves in the middle of the store. They have been in the store since the 1940's when my dad bought them from an old grocery store in downtown Cleveland. They are old maple wood and held alot of canned food items... I can remember what was displayed on each shelf.. cookies, crackers, pickles, peaches and pears, cake mixes, baby food, dog food, and on and on I could go! On the very bottom shelf was where I used to hide as a feisty 5 year old and scare customers by reaching my hand out and touching a leg or a giggle seemingly coming from nowhere and watch the puzzled look on their faces.
Today... The shelves are not working as well as they should be for me ...I'm not sure what I would put in thier place.. a few round oak tables.. a big old farm harvest table... maybe I should have the old shelves made into other display fixtures?
It's a touchy subject with me and I'm not ready to deal with it right now....Yes, I am In Love With My Fixtures!
