Antique Dealers Sell More Collectibles By "Setting The Table"
Anyone in the antique business will tell you that it isn't all that easy to sell sets of dishes and glassware. Every time I buy a box of dishes I am
sorry! BUT, like all dealers..... we keep buying anything and everything.
Dishes sitting on a shelf look boring. And they are usually very hard to display. So one way to help move them along to another home is to show your customers how "lovely" they will look when the table is set. Select a complimentary colorful tablecloth to perk up the ensemble and add a nice vase with fresh or dried flowers to complete the look.
