Showing you behind the scenes of Window Fashions is my story today! Because my business is
based in my home and I don’t have a store front some people have know idea what my business looks
like so, I decided to fill you in on a behind the scenes look of my business.
I have a large inventory of fabric sample books and
fabric hangers. There are some days I spend many hours
picking through sample ideas for an up
coming client whether it be for drapery
panels, top treatments, upholstery items or
I have millions of options to choose from!
My sewing center has an old faithful Pfaff
sewing machine and serger that I’ve used for years! There’s a wide variety of
thread colors and other sewing projects that I would like to sew in my spare time
some time in the future.
I have a 5’X8′ work table that is
padded like a huge ironing board. My dad constructed this for me twenty five
years ago. I use it to roll out the fabrics that are on tubes to cut into the lengths
I need. It works great for hemming and constructing window treatments!
My desk area is where there’s lots
of time designing ideas for window
treatments on my computer or
figuring up estimates and final
invoices. Oh and of course I need
pictures of on my granddaughters displayed front and center on my desk 🙂
You probably have noticed I have a different paint colors on each wall of my office. Because I spend
so much time in this room the happy colors help me enjoy my space!
I have a back door in my office leading to the garage which is where the drop
off point is for all the freight I receive. Inside my suburban
AKA “office on wheels” I have all of my blind sample
books in the back end. I’m a Hunter Douglas priority
dealer which means I have all the sample books available
for that brand. I also sell other brands of blinds and shades
depending on what your interested in!
When is comes to installations of blinds & shades the suburban is filled with boxes sometimes reaching from the front
windshield to the back window! My tool box and small ladder help to complete the installations. Lately it’s getting more
common for me to grab my tall gorrilla ladder that reaches much higher to accommodate for those taller windows.
You may see my suburban (office on wheels) cruising around either
driving to my next appointment or going to install window treatments.
My goal is to be trusted in a way that I can make the change that
you seek to have happen in your home! I’m extremely lucky to
have this office space in my home and a husband and family that
supports my business! I really enjoy my job and I’m so thankful!
