Mixing Patterned Textiles in An Antique Booth To Show Off Folk Art Antiques And Collectibles

Decoratng Your Antique Booth With Patterned Textiles

Textiles are often used by Antique dealers to add color and interest to Antique booth displays. In my booth at The Collinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford, CT, 1950s colorful tablecloths are frequently used not only to perk up the booth but because the patterns aand palette of these vintage tablecloths help accentutate the time period of the collectible that I sell.

Strolling around The Harwinton Antiques Show recently, I came across a gal who speciallized in Folk Art, Outsider Art and Americana. She used a combination of a tight patterned Folk Art textille for a wall background with a loose pattern geometric cloth for a tablecloth. Look how ell her booth showed off
her collectibles.
