Don't you just love it? Most importantly, customers really seem to like it as well. I had to stop working in it often to let customers see items inside. Visually, it is the first thing you see in my booth as you come down the aisle from the front of the store so I am excited to see what type of sales I have from it.
A closer view of three levels. I am now on the hunt for clear risers or other interesting objects to utilize the space better.
What I love most about the case is it allows me to bring in much higher value items like these Art Glass cobalt blue goblets or the 10 piece set of 1880's champagne bowls with hollow stems that I know won't take a walk now. Yea, sad to say that with this difficult economy, many of my items have grown "legs" and walked out of my booth these last few years. I rarely had items stolen but the last few years, people have walked away with Antique Limoges plates, sterling vases, etc. I hate having to put so much behind a locked case but these times require a little more protection.
Anything I display in this birdbath sells so I changed it to display Americana pieces this week.
How neat is this Coca Cola magazine ad?
I love the smiling face of this Navy WAV.
Found this glorious Victorian frame with a heavy mirror behind it. Great piece for over a mantle or a wall of mirrors.
Did Hugh Hefner leave behind his crushed velvet smoking jacket? Sure looks like it. Nifty piece from the 1960s for a cigar smoker or someone who just wants to live in the Playboy Mansion. LOL
How cool are these faux candle lamp parts? I found these a few weeks ago and keep arguing with myself if I should just take them home and keep them. I love the look of candles holding candles. They are heavy items piece and from the 1950s.
Did a complete redo of my Victorian booth. Have been wanting to move the oak mantle and mirror to the center wall of the booth for months now. So tough when you can't move items into the aisles to redo your booth. I finally decided to just go "balls to the wall" and move it. So glad that I did as it allowed me to display a favorite quilt of mine. A magnificent crushed velvet black and white checkered quilt from the turn of the Century.
