Makeover for a Thrift Shop

Challenge: Decorate a resale shop for Christmas. Give it a cohesive feel with the disparate items that are donated to the shop. It’s a thrift store, so naturally it trends toward randomness. Our biggest challenge was to come up with quick projects and accents that say “holiday.”

Solution: Gather all like Christmas items and create vignettes on every open surface from tabletops to shelves. With huge thanks to the fabulous designers who worked last Friday, here are some of the results.
