Vintage Red Metal Candy Cabinets Are Great For Displays:"Everybody Loves Candy"

Bright Red Vintage Metal Candy Racks Featured At The Collinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford, Connecticut

One way to bring a charming vintage look into your store or home is to use an older metal display rack as a decorative piece. Recently, I spotted two wonderful matching bright red candy racks at The Collinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford. On the top of the rack the sign reads : "Everybody Loves Candy"

As I turned the corner from where my booth is located, I practically ran into these marvelous Colorful Era displays. Probably from an old Luncheonette, old Drugstore or Candy Store, these red beauties are the cats meow!

Everybody Likes Candy

At first the racks were tagged and for sale. But when I returned a few days later, Cindy (co-owner) adopted one for her Cruisin cafe to feature snack foods and Doug (husband and co-owner), adopted the other rack for the entry way of this 22,00 square feet Antique Mall to hold free pamphlets and info about antiquing.

I'm not totally sure these fab cabinets are still for sale...BUT I just betcha they are! .
