If you deploy Endless Basket or Tray as here, you need Endless Label Strip for Wire Basket and Wire Shelf to complement. Of course both are endless merely by virtue of being mounted in succession and extended to whatever length is necessary. “Endless” Label Strip typically comes in 3’ and 4’ nominal lengths. Just buy and install as much or as little as you need. Seen at Best Buy. Follow the total fixture fit out directly below.
Coming from a wireforming background, I have to say I was fascinated by this triangular outfitting coil creation. Yes, more of a Desktop File Holder than true Retail Literature Rack, but I liked enough to report anyway since it was found among Concierge Hardware flotsam and jetsam in store. If you are a wireforming or other specialty manufacturer, consider putting your equipment to work creating premiums and give-away promotions that demonstrate your skill in your basic medium. Seen at Main Line Architectural Hardware, Paoli, PA just outside Philadelphia where FixturesCloseUp shops for hardware and browses hardware retail merchandising. Tell Lou who sent you.

Wide, single wireform ledges are custom subdivided into multiple facings for massed display of fashion jewelry. Heart Lockets might always be popular, but these are custom engraved with a range of messages, hence the broad, multi-lane offering. The swapping out of color backers would be easy. So it makes one wonder if the Jewelry House changes offerings seasonally, yet employs similar size packaging so as to reuse the displays. See a variety of zooms in the gallery of images below, and a naked view in the thumbnail.
Get a better look at Vertical Slot Display Hook wire forming in the gallery of 6 photos below. Know that elements and forming operations are very similar to All-Wire Pegboard Display Hooks, just oriented differently. It seems the Vertical Display Hook requires jut a tad more material to construct. An amount significant only if manufactured in vast quantities.
The open wire shelf management system is custom dimensioned and not adjustable so it only serves the Knorr® brand or similar package size. Tightening the shelf spacing seems to have obscured the brand name at package top. The solution? Each facing lane received its own individual brand icon. Between the single size lanes and logo branded product stop, Knorr has locked all competition out of this shelf space. CLICK thumbnail for a closeup of the Knorr Logo and lane. Threaded fasteners seem to be the main method of attachment.
Wireforms provide a simple, lightweight, highly-mobile display fixture. This narrow-shoulder version was stationed near the entry with a host of festive carryall offerings. Is it overwhelming as a display, or do the range of designs and colors actually create more interest and engagement? My interest is the narrow-shoulder wire form which you can see in closeup with a CLICK of the thumbnail. See more wire form Dress Forms below.
Surely designed for some attention compelling, Visual Merchandising use, these Cubic Wireforms appear hand brazed and soldered. CLICK the thumbnail to see that they were created at several scales. But my mind grows old and feeble. I can’t recall where I took the shot or why the intense red background. Its time I hire a cute young assistant to take notes while I make my rounds and photograph everything I see.
If nothing else, FixturesCloseUp offers comprehensive coverage of wireforms in all their shapes, sizes and uses. This open wire dress form bolsters an existing retail display thread, but also makes me think this would make on-dress-form tailoring and sewing far easier than cloth or solid dress forms. If only I knew a seamstress to ask. CLICK the thumbnail for a closer view.
A surprise display of pots and pans jumbled in an Open Wire Urn, for it is too small for a vase and too unusual to call a bin. You gain attention when you violate expectations like this. Normally randomly staked cookware at my house means time to wash the dishes. Here the stack is an unusual artistic presentation. Vivid red merchandise against a gleaming counters, backsplash and white wire, insure your eye focuses where the design wants it. CLICK the thumbnail for an second angle.
The open design of this wire form Urn allows the fluffy fabric of these bath tows to shine through, while vertical orientation cutting across store signtlines show you just where you might find the towel of your dreams. Stacked on low shelves these towels are a shopping afterthought. These open wire Urns help elevate to a destination I might aim for from across the selling floor. Did I mention the Urns have other display uses too? CLICK the thumbnail for alternate Urn and towel offerings. Then follow the threads below.
Wireform Urns encourage runners and small carpets to stand up for themselves in retail. As a vertical element they interrupt the eyes view of the far off retail horizon and force a focus closer in. Cutting off the “thousand mile star” encourages shoppers to enjoy the colors and patterns of the rugs close at hand.
A barely visible open wire dress form tangles with a pack of ferocious, constricting belts. The display makes more of a statement on selection available than highlighting individual belt styles. Meet and get advice from Kate Holmes (Auntie Kate) on WordPress.
