Planning for Father’s Day – simple ways to sell to the manly


Our protective Fathers help us build our dreams. They are devoted, motivating and inspirational. They give us the tools we need to succeed. Here I’ve selected two very special props for Father’s Day windows or merchandising: our gorgeous vintage wooden spade (£49 Ex Vat) and the vintage garden fork (£49 Ex Vat). Now I know it may seem sexist to some, but when merchandising the perfect themed window or display, you have but seconds to grab attention and set the scene.

These are idyllic retail props for merchandising conjure up days out gardening with our old man or lazy Sunday afternoon family picnics. They flavour the season with a gesture of masculinity and represent the proud strength of our dear dads.

The waxed wood and metal detail of our fork or spade make for impressive hanging window displays. Alternatively, embellish the spade or fork with our rustic vintage apple crates and create a truly amazing Father’s day scene. Using iconic recognised props for Father’s day will help you create a sophisticated scene that should shovel in those extra seasonal sales.
