Where to buy front desk display items

So I am having a hard time searching online for what I am looking for, most likely because I am having a hard time putting it into words. We only sell t-shirts, sweatshirts, and protein at our box. But we need something to put them on to sell. We have our shirts pinned to the wall behind the desk as of now. Not the best set up. Also, our protein is in an old Blockbuster movie rack, that if placed wrong, will rip the bags open. I figure there has to be a company that sells desks, display cases, shirt racks, and other gym equipment that isn't actual gym equipment. Thanks!

Any help?

Do you have an IKEA near you? We just use closet shelving for our displays. They have lots of options and not too expensive.

Search for "merchandise display cases" on Craig's List; we bought ours for $70.

Re: Where to buy front desk display items

We used some hanging shelves from Ikea and a few book cases from WalMart to make our retail displays. They look great as well as kept the costs down compared to some retail displays out there that I have seen.

Barry- We are in the process of doing some wall art/graphics for our box. How did you go about finding someone to do the anchor? It looks great!

The wall logo was done by a local company. I did use SignsAsRx for Platform logos and some other wall graphics and they are awesome. The vinyl they used is thick and looks great. The anchor on the wall is about the same size as the logos I used on the platforms.
