Window Display Tip: Try Cellophane to Reduce Harsh Colors

HOLIDAY-STYLE LIGHTS can be beautiful for lighting up window displays to passersby in the street. But sometimes, the glare can be a little much. And if you have a striking color scheme, it too may not be as soft as the feeling you’re trying to create.

When Dustin Rennells, creative director at Persona Jewelry+ in Boston, was putting together his holiday window displays last year, he discovered that the shine of his purple twinkle lights combined with purple garland was too jarring to the eye.

“Our purple garland sprinkled with purple twinkle lights was too harsh for the color I wanted,” says Rennells. “So, I lined between the garland and the window with shards of cellophane from our wrapping station. It also gave a diffused, homey glow to otherwise shocking candy-purple lights.”

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
