Prop Up Tiny Plates, Lids And Small Collectibles Using An Old Printer's Box

Displaying Smaller Collectibles In Your Antique Shop

Cute Display Idea For Orphaned Lids, Plates, Tops

I have seen  old printers boxes used in lots of different ways. But yesterday I spotted a new twist to an old theme. Anne Burke, owner of Coventry Arts and Antiques gathered up all her odds and ends and organized them in  large printer's box which is laying flat on a table. This idea  is a perfect way to display smaller collectibles as well as orphaned lids, coasters, plates etc. The tiny compartments are just the right size to hold tiny collectibles that would otherwise get lost in a large shop. What makes this display y unique is that the "lids" and tiny plates are propped up so that they can be easily viewed. What a practical and thrifty way to re-cycle vintage items.
