Let's Get Visual

Before I went to university, I took a trip round some shops to take pictures of their visual merchandising as part of a pre-arrival task. I presented this is a scrapbook along with digital and printed fashion inspiring things. This was seen as more of an ice breaker task, for us to get to know each other and get a feel for the course.

I found a little shop called 'Bird's Yard' down Chapel Walk in Sheffield, which sold Sheffield designers under one roof. This meant that locals who had created there own little companies and made clothes, jewellery, homeware, cards and many other things where having a place to sell their little collections and to be promoted. I found this to be a wonderful idea, it was such a lovely place as you can see.

I have always been a fan of Cow Vintage and therefore I went to take photos here, they have so much stock in now they need more space in their shop! From the multicoloured ceiling and the wooden floor the place just has a very retro and quirky feel to it, that and the fact that you can find some real bargains!

Anyway, I felt the need to share these pictures with you, as well as it being a little bit of a different post. I have some great things planned for my christmas countdown, only a week now till I start working on it! Hope you are having a nice day, Sarah, x
