Grouping Colorful Kitchen Collectibles Together : Displays That Get Attention

Red, Yellow, Green Kitchen Collectibles Look Fab Together

I was immediately drawn to this colorful display featuring a vintage plastic napkin holder sitting on top of  a pile of vintage Riviera Ware. You gotta love the combination of the red, yellow and green. These colors are so exciting and so VINTAGE! The lesson here is to create attractive combinations of collectibles so that you are showcasing your items for sale. You not only save space by creating vertical displays, you offer the buyer ideas of how to arrange vintage colors and objects at home. The idea is to suggest to the buyer how great this entire vignette looks. You'd be surprised at how often customers buy the whole grouping and "copy" what they see displayed in a shop.
