STOREFRONT PAINTING / PHOTO JOURNAL

The evolution of our storefront space continued earlier this month with the painting of our storefront. Once we knew we were staying put in this location, painting the black panels on the front of the shop became a priority. We wanted to brighten up the look (in a way that was more cost efficient that expensive signage - still a very small business after all) of the shop and draw some attention our way from drive-by traffic.
We tossed the idea to Bigshot Robot, a local Milwaukee artist we have worked with previously on joint gallery shows and he threw together a bunch of patterns to pick from. We wanted something simple, black and white and pattern based. Our shop parter Tasha Rae Jewelry also decided to have her side done in a complimentary, but not exactly the same, pattern.
The end result on our side is a checkered pattern that brings the feel of our shop outside. The simple shapes and overall cleanliness of the pattern match the products we carry, and the way we prefer to display. Slowly but surely, we are turning this Bay View storefront into a nice first location for Commonplace. With any luck, we can continue to improve and make this a long-term home for years to come.
