Tips for a happy sale.
I always notice when shopping the attention given to the wrapping of my precious loot.
A recent triumph at Signet Bureau in Gertrude Street is worth mentioning. A gorgeous pair of tobacco coloured Robyn Black jodhpurs was folded with such care; wrapped in brown paper and tied up with string. I carried my little parcel home and didn't want to open it. It happened again at Miss Louise during an impromptu indulgence. A beautiful pair of bleu roi Balenciaga sandals were carefully placed into one of Melbourne's most beautiful shopping bags.
So don't rush, wrap with care! Make sure the presentation is as stylish as the object itself and for a final flourish, step out from behind your counter to present the package as though a gift from one friend to another.
