One way to double duty your antiques and collectibles is to open up the drawers of cabinets. desk, dressers etc. and USE the drawers as display space for other objects.
I spotted an older wooded painted file cabinet at
the store Anthropologie.
As you can see the drawer si stuffed with products that they have for sale. And look how hip the chippy green paint looks with yellow jars. What an attractive color combination.
Now you can think twice abut passing up old cabinets. Perhaps they would make GREAT display space in your shop or home?
