The Village Smithy openly supports Village Visual Merchandising with wrought iron display aids. I liked that by merchandising a single item, attention is more tightly focused. The red-black contrast did not hurt matters either. A crook facing the rear would allows non-competing bidirectional display. Could a single upright like this be effective at your shop or mall entrance? I suggest so. Medieval made modern. CLICK the thumbnail for a closeup of the Shepherd’s Crook shape. To see in person browse the craftsman pop-up stores at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire at the Mount Hope Winery.
