Since today is another one of Kathleen's White Wednesday's, I wanted to feature a shop in McKinney that I've featured before. You can always find white things at Smitten. As you walk up to Smitten, one of the first things that catches your eye are their huge display windows. I always think it's so great when a shop has display windows that are a good size, but the best thing is when their displays are just so appealing. There are many shops I've seen that don't use the display windows to their full advantage. They don't try to decorate them to draw customers in, they just stuff them full of stuff, that's never appealing. If displays windows are appealing, to me as a customer, I'll be more inclined to visit a shop. Then, there are the shops that are just your kind of place that you want to spend time at just going over every detail so as not to miss anything, well that's how Smitten is.
I'll show their windows in just a bit, but first I wanted to show you the display that caught my eye enough to put it as my header photo:
This booth belongs to Elizabeth Duval of Studio Number 35. What I didn't realize is that she is also a published author and super talented too. You can check out her website here.
I think we like the same things:
Just look at all these things that some how make such an interesting display.
This is the front part of her booth:
More great things:
Let's move on to Angie's booth. Some of you may have remembered seeing her house featured on Patina Green's blog and just how beautiful it was. If you didn't get the chance to see, you have to go here to check out the post. Here was her beautiful booth:
This garden statue had just the right patina:
Here was another great one:
And I just adored this vintage men's suit advertisement:
It was really large and could have considered a great piece of art and history.
This front booth was so beautiful:
Of course as I said, their windows were just so appealing:
Sorry about the glare.
You can click on any of the above pictures to see more of Smitten. I hope the next time you are in McKinney you'll stop by and visit Karen's shop. She is also opening a new store really soon, "The Flea", that will be located a few doors down from The Antique Company Mall. I can't wait to visit her new place. Happy Wednesday to you all and be sure and visit Kathleen's blog for all the White Wednesday participants.
