Glory Haus Girls Team Building Day!

Glory Haus Girls heading off for a day of team building!

Pictured above are all the ladies of Glory Haus that were able to participate in our Ladies Team Building day of shopping Immediate Delivery at the Atlanta Mart. We sorely missed Kelda & Christi, but somehow we managed to shop without you.

Working at Glory Haus is lots of fun! Oh, we work hard following Colossians 3:23's direction, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." However, I can also tell you that this philosophy applies to whatever we are doing, including our day of ladies team building.

Having recently received our Glory Haus shopping bags into our warehouse, Molly decided everyone would need one for all the treasures she was sure we would find, and she was right! No one walked away empty handed from this day of team building. Let me just tell you that it beats a ropes course any day!

Good Morning Arkansas features Glory Haus!

Victory Haus' Auburn How To Canvas

Kendra Fortner, owner of Bimini Butterfly in Cabot, Arkansas, was invited to be a part of Good Morning Arkansas! to talk about fashionable attire to wear to an Arkansas game. So how did Glory Haus product become a part of this segment, since we don't make collegiate clothing? Well, if you are familiar with Glory Haus' new collegiate line Victory Haus, I'm sure you can already imagine how this stylish and unique collegiate product became a part of this segment.

The Glory Haus Arkansas How to Canvas (16*20) and our Arkansas Logo Canvas (12*12) were used to decorate the set for this segment. These canvases represent just one of the ten schools found in Glory Haus' Victory Haus Collection. As you can see by clicking on Good Morning Arkansas!, these two pieces instantly set the tone for the true Razorback fan. Don't they look good on the TV set? They'll look even better in your home. Visit our website today and view the entire Victory Haus collection for all ten schools: Auburn, Alabama, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Texas A&M, Arkansas, and Tennessee.

Don't see your school? Visit again later! We are continually adding new schools!


Hope your team wins this Weekend!

Our mission at Glory Haus is Community Transformation in a positive direction that glorifies the Lord and changes lives through our work, art and relationships. As we read through some of the 376 comments posted on We are that Family! regarding Glory Haus products, we were encouraged! People didn't just pick their favorite products. They also shared why they loved it and how they thought it might touch the life of a friend, a sister, a child or their family as a whole. One of my favorite comments was from Rachel speaking of the girl and boy Treasured Possession canvases when she said, "What a great reminder!"

That's exactly what we want to do! We want to remind each one of you of the hope you have, of whose you are, of the promises you hold, and most of all that you are loved!

Christmas Ordering


Christmas at Glory Haus

Christmas is a glorious time of celebration! If you're a retailer, Christmas is also a time filled with lots of planning and even more hard work. Of course the planning begins way before December. It is not uncommon for retailers to place their orders for Christmas items in January, when they've just finished up the Christmas buying season and have their finger on the pulse of what their customers want.

As I worked with customers at the marts over the last month, it was easy to see that retailers are hopeful about this Christmas season; however, there is a struggle to know if they've picked the right items in the correct price range. To miss either, could result in sales that are a little flatter than they desired. Many retailers brought their January orders and just like Santa checked their lists twice to make sure that everything is right.

So as you look to make sure that your Christmas orders are complete, you might want to consider these tips from christmastipsforretailers.com.
1- Christmas decorations should reflect a desire for the playful
2- Cheerfulness and reflectiveness are desired in our decorations.
3- Customers want value, quality, and reasonable prices.
4- Decorations & gifts that reflect their individuality are in high demand.

All of us at Glory Haus are happy to say that you will find all of these qualities in our
Christmas crosses, frames, tiles, canvases, and ornaments. Check your Christmas orders now, and if Glory Haus can help you in anyway, just let us know!

Let's Go to the Lake!


I love the Lake!

While I would love to be on the Lake all the time, that doesn't always work. However, with these fabulous Glory Haus frames, I can display my memories from the lake all over my house. They also make great gifts for my friends, who share lake memories with me. Of course, all of the Glory Haus Lake products (boards, frames, hook board and tile) are a great addition to any lake home. The Lake Hook board is a great place to hang all the towels to dry after a full day on the lake. The best part is that all of these items are fun to use in your decor!

If you're a retailer who carries lake products, you will be glad to know that this product line is a quick turner, especially from April to early September. As you can see from the picture above, the complementing colors make it easy to merchandise as a collection.
In the event that you would like more information on these or other Glory Haus products, please visit our website at www.gloryhaus.com

See you on the Water!

How to Make Your own Glory Haus Pallet Display


Seasons in Oklahoma

Rodney & Wendy from Seasons in Marlow, Oklahoma, made their own Glory Haus Pallet Display; and you can too.

Here are the instructions to get you started.

1) You need to find 2 pallets. 42 inch pallets work nicely.

2) Using a 2x4 for support, attach your two pallets together.

3) Lay the pallets on the floor & mark where you want to put your shelving.

4) Measure to determine the amount of wood you will need to create your shelving. We recommend that you use boards that are about 9.5 to 10 inches wide and at least 1 inch thick. This will give you the depth necessary to stack product on the shelves.

5) After you have purchased the wood for shelving, you will want to make the pallets & the shelves look a little more rustic. This can be accomplished by applying gray deck stain that is mixed with water 50-50.

6) Once your paint is dry, you're ready to get your power tools, so you can make the shelves. Be sure to notch the side of the shelves with your jig saw, so that they slide back onto the pallet. This enables you to be able to brace the shelving from the back of the pallet. We also recommend that you secure shelves with long screws from the side of the pallet when able.

7) Then using "L" brackets brace the shelves on the underneath side. One side of the "L" goes on the shelf, while the other goes on the pallet. For shelves longer than 3 feet, remember to brace the middle and not just the ends.

8) To hang items you have a couple of options:

a. You may choose to use landscape nails driven straight into the pallet. If you go with this option, please use a screw in hook to help stabilize it. You make this happen by placing the landscape nail under a shelf, so you can screw the hook in the shelf about two thirds back and let the nail rest in the hook. The placement of the hook should allow for the placement of product on the nail and provide stability at the same time.

b. Your second option is to use screw in hooks under the shelving. Be careful not to overweight these hooks.

c. The final option we've discovered is to use nails to create hangers in different places on the pallet.

9) Now you are ready to attach your pallet to the wall. Be sure to use dry wall screws & drive them into a stud, so it does not pull out of the wall.

10) If you want the pallet to be standing in the middle of the room, you can make two pallet displays & stand them back to back. Then you need to secure it to the ceiling using chain that is certified to hold the weight of the display. We recommend black chain, so that it is less noticeable.

Good Luck with your Pallet Display! Remember to stock it out with Glory Haus inventory.

As we've heard from our customers everywhere, "The display makes a big difference in the movement of the inventory. It flies off the shelves."

When you're done, REMEMBER to send me PHOTOS!

Beautiful Display Table

Raspberry Row's Spool Table

If you were able to drop by our showroom in Atlanta, you may have noticed that our center piece table was a reclaimed cable spool. You know, one of those spools that they coil telephone or cable wires around. What did it cost? Nothing! After rescuing the spool from the side of the road, we brought it to our warehouse, where it was coated with gray deck stain. After that our artist, Laura Kirkland, added flair by painting a decorative edge all the way around the top. Many of you asked us about the table and have set out to make your own.

Pictured above is one of those table. Krista at Raspberry Row in Dalton, Georgia promptly found a cable spool to create her own table. If you look closely on the top of the spool, you can see that Krista has painted copies of some of her & Pat's favorite Glory Haus products.

She completed the look and optimized her display space by adding height with the slender trees used as poles. Yes, these are real trees! They are secured to the top of the table with L-brackets. These trees support a decorative metal piece on the top that is used to suspend additional product. Now, they have a great display piece!

Great job Krista & Pat! If you've created your own display piece or found a way to creatively display product, tell us about it. Send your pictures and a short description and/or directions to angela@gloryhaus.com. We love sharing helpful ideas with small businesses everywhere!

Don't You Just Love Mart?!!!

Picture from Chicago (DNA - 14th floor)

Here at Glory Haus we love Mart time! It is a little crazy and super busy, but it is also the time of year that we get to meet face to face with so many of our wonderful customers. Thanks to each one of you, who took the time to come by and introduce yourself! It is always our pleasure to meet and work with you, and it was so encouraging to hear how well Glory Haus is selling for you.

For those of you that didn't make it to mart but need a catalog, please send your request for a catalog to info@gloryhaus.com. We would love to share our new product with you! Be sure to pay special attention to our new Magnet Canvas Block Art on pages 6 and 7. Not only are they strong magnets, but they also will stand up on a desk or shelf as block art. They were good sellers at every market!

As many of you are beginning to receive your new 2010 Glory Haus items, we would love to see pictures of the displays you have in your store. Please send them to angela@gloryhaus.com, so we can share your display ideas with all of our customers. Until next time, Blessings to all of you!
