I know we have boasted about working with production companies in the past and it is always exciting to be an insider even if it is ever so slightly. Of course we can not mention what we are helping them work on, but it would appear the 80's are very popular, as are cheap hotels from any time frame and law offices. Dramas, SYFY, comedies and biographies all need to have a place to be set. We do not often pay attention to what is in the background, but take a second, picture your favorite show, series or movie. Now picture it with only a white screen behind it, what effects do you loose?

I will admit I have noticed more back ground settings then ever before. Just the other night while watching "LETHAL WEAPON" Tv series,the characters are sitting in a boat that is going to be refurbished and behind them are fabric books from companies we carry. Trend and Robert Allen, it set the scene and defined the space and added to the story. I do not think I would have noticed that a few weeks ago, but since so many new faces from a variety of production companies have been coming in to look at our stock, borrow our books and of course buy fabric for scenes in upcoming shows, it has changed my perspective.

Lets just say, when the productions are released and we get the ok to list some of the new shows, we will. But for now just a teaser; Netflix, Amazon, CBS, Pacific 2.1 Entertainment, Paramount, TVM Productions just to name the most recent few who have been keeping us busy.

Today, one of our regulars, who does set designing for WCSU Theater was in and she informed us that the old @1930-40 cash register we had in the store for sale was used in a movie. "THE BOOK OF HENRY" . YOUTUBE has a clip of the scene on-line it is in the "GUN SHOP" you can barely see it, but we know it isthere.

The next time you are watching a show, series or movie. Stop a minute and think about how they did that and where it came from, it could be from your hometown store.

We want to give a shout out to each one the amazing and talented women that have been in the store, with the daunting task to make your imagination come to life. They truly are the art behind the craft. Thank you for all you do to entertain us.

Kendall, Heather, Sarah, Kim, Mary, Ellen and Sara.

See you all soon!
