Spring is the season for new possibilities and many people
let the warm weather inspire them to make career changes. If you are thinking
about becoming your own boss by opening a retail shop, familiarize yourself
with the different retail fixtures available. Wire displays, garment racks,
slatwall fixtures, display baskets, and tables are a sampling. Several stand-style
fixtures have recently hit the market and they are quickly becoming popular
Wood is an attractive and durable material to use when
constructing fixtures. It is long-lasting and has an elegant appearance. A hand
carved mango wood stack stand with a tung oil finish is an eco-friendly retail
fixture with unique qualities. It measures 18 inches high and 10 inches in
diameter, perfect for use as a small table in a store with limited space.
Tung oil causes some of the wood to go dark, while some
remains light. Treating this stand with wax or a wood preservative keeps it
beautiful for years. The stand can be used to showcase shoes, hats,
accessories, or gifts and since it weighs about 21 pounds, it can be moved
around the store to create seasonal displays.
A round zig zag stand is perfect for a retail store that
showcases handmade pottery, jewelry, or crafts. It is hand carved and the clear
oil finish highlights the rings and grain of the wood. This stand has a unique
look due to the varying wood tones. At one point, it looks dark brown but the
color changes to tan at the outer edges. This fixture measures 18 inches tall
and has a diameter of 14 inches, making it large enough to display a hand
painted plate or a beautiful pottery vase.
Teak is an exquisite wood that many people prefer to other
types. Retailers can use hand carved teak block stands or tables to display
inventory. With an oak finish and a variety of sizes available, these stands
are as versatile as they are attractive. The hand carving is designed to look
like a block of squares, making each stand a focal point.
Retailers should not miss this opportunity to add this new
store equipment to their sales floor. Attractive fixtures make the display area
more appealing to customers. People will gravitate to these stands to view the
merchandise being displayed. With such visually inviting presentations, they
will not be able to refrain from making some purchases.
