Who’s That in the Window? Oh, It’s Obama

Before the holiday decorations go up, retailers are getting in last-minute Obama pitches using special window displays. In Soho, Kiki de Montparnasse combined their Halloween and election spirit with naughty-nurse and French-maid costumes inside windows painted with the words "Hope is Sexy, VOTE." Buckler plastered a stenciled image of Obama from floor to ceiling outside their Grand Street shop. They also dubbed their current 50-percent-off sale the "Obama Sale." While those stores touted Obama, Kate Spade took the nonpartisan route, posting signs like "Ask Questions," "Take a Chance," "Break the Rules," and "Freedom." We like the patriotic storefronts. Anything to keep the holiday displays out of view until closer to the actual holiday is a good thing.
