Adding An Element of Surprise When Displaying Antiques and Collectibles

How To Add A Hint of Whimzy To Your Outdoor Antique Booth Displays to Engage Buyers
 This is a very well done display of older collectibles. If it was a painting, the viewer could say that the composition is very successful. But then the gal who made this vignette (spotted at the Sandwich, Mass Flea Market took her display one step further. She added a set of newer wooden kitchen utensils and placed them smack in the middle of her well organized "story". The element of surprise is what attracts the buyer to take another look at this interesting display.
