Tropical vibes in Glasgow

Spirito go for gold with leaf out of recycling book in latest window display


RECYCLING is the name of the game these days and Spirito have taken it to new heights with this fabulous shop window display.

For the core gold leaves and colourful parrots were hand-painted by Sarah Curedale, the artist behind Real & Exciting Designs, who made the original display to decorate her stand at PG Live.
And when Spirito owner Denise Laird made the trip to London from Glasgow for the show, she fell in love with the bright artwork.
Sarah is known for her flamboyant stand dressing although this latest is much smaller than the full-sized fluorescent pink tree she had at Spring Fair, and she said: “Denise asked me what would happen to it after the show, when I said it would probably just go into storage she asked if she could have it.”
Alan and Debbie Williams, who own Real & Exciting along with Mint and Museums & Galleries, were more than happy to let the piece go, although the logistics of how to get it safely to Scotland from their Corby base were interesting!
The leaves and parrots are now proudly at home in Spirito’s latest window display, along with Real & Exciting product, which celebrates the store being chosen as one of the Retas finalists in the greetings retailers awards Best Non-Specialist North category – they find out the winners on July 10.
Denise said: “We’re very excited to reveal our new window display. A huge thank you to Real & Exciting Designs – one of our favourite new card companies from PG Live – who gave us their gold leaves and parrots to put in our window. It’s been great showing it in the shop. We love them!
"it was so lovely of Real and Exciting Designs and so cleverly done! We are delighted to be able to show it in our window and lots of customers and passerby have been admiring and enjoying the tropical display.
“We know our customers love cards as much as we do, so it’s a real honour to be finalists in The Retas. Hopefully our window will bring a little bit of sunshine and tropical vibes to Glasgow.”
