Displaying Vintage Earrings On An Antique Tennis Racket

Vintage Jewelry Looks Great Displayed On The Strings Of An Old Wooden Tennis Racket

Vintage jewelry is not the easiest item to sell in an Antique booth when you have lots of other collectibles, textiles and antiques competing for attention. The small little things such  as costume jewelry generally get lost in the avalanche of STUFF. But one clever dealer I met at the Harwinton Antiques Weekend in Harwinton , CT resolved the jewelry issue by displaying her vintage earrings on   the strings of an
old tennis racket.

What I like about this idea is how terific the aged wooden frame looks as a display prop. The display is eye catching and
invites interest.

  1. Looks great! Thanks for sharing, I'm always looking for display ideas!

  2. That is a really good idea -- and make a nice display for both the jewelry and the vintage racket.

  3. Great concept and I have 2 rackets that haven't sold so I'll try re-purpose as display!
