Creative Displays For Hanging Vintage Costume Jewelry In Your Antique Shop

Dangle Your Vintage Costume Jewelry From A Clever Miniature Wooden Ladder


What happens when you find a miniature wooden ladder .....and you have no idea where it came from or what to do with it? Well if you are a clever collector like my friend Peter Roth, who owns "Tree House Art And Antiques", on Route 44 in New Hartford, CT, you look at this random toy size wooden ladder and you say to yourself what can I do with it?

Look At Objects From All Angles And Perspectives

Peter likes to turn objects around, upside down, sideways, inside get the point.

So here is what Peter did with the toy size ladder he found. He created a bridge with the ladder, attaching it from one object and hooking it to a nearby lampshade. Now he has created a wonderful display for hanging vintage costume jewelry.

  1. If you are wondering where to get one of these ladders. They are for large birds. Parrots etc. any bird store has them! Also for larger items I use full size wooden ladders to drape my navajo rugs off of but you can use it for linens etc!
