Coming Out Of Your Shell: Displaying Small Artwork In Your Antique Booth or Shop

Displaying Unframed Small Artwork In The Opening of A Vintage Planter   

It's hard to display unframed small artwork (postcard size or smaller) in a crowded Antique booth unless you use a tiny easel or lean the mini artwork up against another object. Another option is to showcase small artwork by combining it with a pottery planter or vase. In the picture shown, I have propped this little orginal canvas on top of a vintage shell motif planter. I like conserving space and having my collectibles serve dual purposes. I also use compatible colors so it looks like it makes sense.
