I have a showcase and will soon have a booth at Countryside Collectibles & Antiques Mall in Siler City NC. I set up my Showcase this week - Showcase #21, and will be moving into my booth in June.
I love decorating a display with a theme in mind and using clothing to add interest and help tell the story of vintage items. Sometimes its a bit difficult to find or have available multiple related antiques at a given time so I find clothing items a great way to pull a look together for what I do have.
I recently attended my Sister-in-Laws wedding so I had weddings on the brain as well as a pink thing happening so part of my display was a "Think Pink" theme, which I think played well with the "wedding" inspired items I've displayed.
The 1930s Mary Dunbar Mixer as well as the 1930's Berstead Model #68 Toaster are two of my favorite items in this case. Toasters and mixers have been traditional wedding gifts for eons and I love the charm of these rusty relics to the past.
Countryside Collectibles & Antique Mall is in Siler City, NC, located at the intersection of Hwy 421 & Hwy 64 and has 30,000 square feet of Antiques and Collectibles from a variety of vendors. If you are ever in this part of North Carolina and you get the chance to drop by Countryside Collectibles & Antique Mall. I hope you'll stop by Showcase 21 and have a peek.
