Vintage Displays

I have an obsession with vintage storage vessels. When I spot a perfect little ceramic planter, an aluminum loaf tin, or an old metal box I can't help but pick it up and give it a new purpose.

Luckily, these utilitarian objects make great retail display pieces too!

Easy to find on Etsy, thrift shops and antique markets they make great alternatives to some of the bland retail display units that are on the market.

Vintage printers racks, suitcases, wooden ladders, sewing boxes and soda crates also make fantastic display and storage pieces.

I use these items in my show booths to store and display my products. Shoppers love the vintage aesthetic!

For more ideas, visit my Flickr photostream to see pictures from some of my displays. It will give you an idea of how I have incorporated vintage finds.

I'd love to hear how you incorporate vintage finds into your home or business. Please share!
