Displaying Antiques And Collectibles Using Concrete Reinforcment Wire

Hanging Vintage Trivets And Other Collectibles On Concrete Reinforcement WireRetro Hang-Up Ideas

Need more space in your antique shop or antique booth? How about using concrete reinforcement wire to form a grid display to hang your favorite objects on. On a recent trip to "Not Just A Crock", a huge sprawling antique store in Westbrook, Connecticut, I spotted several displays using concrete reinforcement wire.

I have to say that the window displays (using the wire grid) really got my attention. In the photo shown, wrought iron trivets and other objects are hanging from this concrete reinforcement wire. What a great way to gain more "wall" space and to feature trivets of various sizes and shapes.
