Creative ideas......

Education & Training with International School of Staging

 I constantly marvel at the fact that we have all come from very different professions and that we now we find ourselves in this fledgling industry called home staging. With so much to learn as the industry develops, I feel thankful to have an outlet like Active Rain where we can pool ideas and resources.  A ‘free' magazine put out by Lowes has been landing on my desk every month. I have no idea how, but I finally took the trouble to actually look at it instead of throwing it away.  It's a most informative little publication, definitely worth subscribing to.

  The decorating tips are worth looking at and occassionaly they post coupons in them.  My husband loves the coupons and I love the magazine.

The first time I saw the magazine the National Association of Realtors sent out info.  Any realtor can go on line and register their buyers and sellers.  The first magazine goes out with the realtors information.  The following magazines don't have that.

Maybe one of your realtors signed you up !!

Smart marketing by Lowe's to put together a magazine that probably stays around homes a lot longer than the basic ad insert in the Sunday paper. Thanks for sharing, Andy!

Forgot to mention the discount coupons - what a great 'gift' to pass onto your client!
