Dressing A Vintage Mannequin With A Shawl To Display Vintage And Costume Jewelry

Styling Is Important When Selling Vintage And Costume Jewelry

Dressing a vintage mannequin in a knitted shawl is a great way to show off your vintage and costume jewelry. Not only is this a practical idea, but by adding the extra pizazz you help customers visualize how lovely a piece of jewelry might look on an "outfit" or as an accessory.

Mannequins Invite Customers To Take A Look
"Styling" your antiques and collectibles is so important when you want to get the buyer's attention. I like the idea of a mannequin because it can usually be placed in a key spot in your shop or booth, invite shoppers to come take a look. While this white shawl looks could try different colors as well. Just be careful to keep it simple so that the jewelry presents well.
