I just love creating window displays which make people stop, look, engage and then step inside the shop or business. Nothing thrills me more than hearing how successful themes have been and the sales that have been made as a direct result of First Impressions window displays! I love it!!
From one-off displays to those which are changed every few weeks, I can cater for all. And, with my gigantic and constantly growing stock of props at my fingertips to keep things fresh, no two displays are ever the same and also it keeps the costs down, so it’s a win/win situation for the business owners!
Here are just a few examples of displays I’ve created …
My aim is to help independent retailers by creating a real Wow factor. This involves a huge amount of attention to detail and planning behind the scenes. The story and detail involved helped the team from Toy Hub Dunblane head off on a fabulous trip to New York, having won a window display competition which was designed, created and installed by First Impressions!!
Displays are fully created and planned in depth before they are installed in a shop window as can be seen here:
… and can be created for routine business or for special events …
Feel free to get in touch if you would like a no obligation quote for your business.
You could even be lucky enough to win a prize in a window display competition, although I can’t guarantee it’d be a trip to New York !!
Themes can be created in conjunction with you or I can suggest them. Either way, each display is unique and can benefit from my vast studio full of props.

“Since Sue left us for her new career in window dressing, she has used her abundant design skills and imagination to create consistently innovative window displays for each of our practices. Taking simple instructions on theme and turning these into striking and thoughtful scenes, which continually provoke interest and complimentary comments from our patients. She has gone from strength to strength since expanding her client base, and is completely dedicated, reliable and trustworthy in her approach and attitude. I can’t recommend her highly enough to any business inclined to use her service.” (Niall Erskine, Director, R S Erskine Optometrists – Winners of Forth Valley Family Business of the Year 2014)

“Thanks so much to Sue for our fantastic window displays here at Celebration Station, Perth. So many customers have commented on them and admired them. She is very accommodating and manages to use an amazing range of props which complement our celebration cakes. We celebrated our 10th Anniversary at the beginning of June and she created two fab window displays at very short notice which appeared in the local press. Thanks again Sue!” (Angela, Celebration Station, Perth)
