Using A Vintage Quilted Lingerie Tray To Display Small Collectibles In Your Antique Booth

Re-Purposing A Vintage Lingerie And Stocking Organizer

You have seen plenty of these quilted satin Lingerie Trays for sale which were originally sold for women to use as lingerie and stocking organizers. These days, I really do not see these lovely vanity collectibles flying out the door of any shops. But that doesn't mean we can't make use out of them in our displays.

Use The Compartments To Hold And Display Your "Smalls"

So what shall we do with these practical products of yesteryear? Don;t hide them in your booth. USE them in a new way. Consider displaying your "smalls" in the divided compartments . Costume jewelery, sewing notions, trinkets, medals etc will work well tucked into the sections.
