Antique Mall Booth Display Ideas: Stacking Works Well

Stacking Kitchen Collectibles on Adorable Shelves or Doll Cupboards

Here are some of my secrets for getting more space in my Antique mall booth, :Kitsch n Stuff" at The Collinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford, Connecticut.

Using Vintage Childrens Cupboards In Your Display
I use the "stacking" method to create very exciting displays using small Children's cupboards which sit on the floor or cute smaller shelves which can sit on top of a larger shelf.

Gaining Vertical Space In An Antique Mall Booth Space

Both of these ideas allow me to create more display space in tight areas or to build up and gain vertical space. The trick is to keep important collectibles within reach of the buyer. It's o.k. to add collectibles on top of very tall shelves but I generally reserve that option for hatboxes or very large advertising tins.

Red And White Vintage Doll Cupboard

For sellers of vintage kitchen-ares, red or red and white shelves are very effective for displaying older kitchen collectibles. By using cute shelve filled with advertising tins or smalls, in your display, people get the idea of how they might start a collection at home
