The Holidays are coming!

It's that time of year for all of us to start thinking about the holidays coming up. In retail, there is no Thanksgiving, just Christmas.... Here is a shot of Denholms in the early 1960's with the infamous tree of lights that adorned the facade.

Here is an article that my grandmother gave on the importance of window displays, and how they relate to a stores image.

Denholms windows completed!

This week I had the pleasure to work on the windows at the Denholm building, and finished my retrospective of the Denholm and McKay department store. I cannot even begin to thank all of the people who helped and encouraged me with this dream of mine. I want to thank Pat and Diane who allowed me access to their Denholms archive. I also want to thank Mellisa,Matt, Doug, and Ernie and everyone at the Denholm building for their kindness and hard work.
You all are amazing!!!

This building is really a gem, and I look forward to working on more windows with the Denholm team.

A big thanks to all.
