Stacking Antiques and Collectibles To Save Space In Your Antique Booth

Tips When Displaying and Stacking Kitchen Collectibles 

If you rent space in an Antique Mall, you probably have more stuff than room for all your stuff. So it is important to find ways to neatly and safely display your kitchenwares and treasures.

You might consider stacking collectibles, by turning a bowl upside down to form a pedestal for another object such as the pitcher shown in the photo. Lots of different items can be stacked on top of upside down bowls. Consider, another (smaller)bowl, pitchers, beverage glasses, tea cups and more.

Make sure the assemblage is quite stable and not on a shelf that is too cluttered. Always test the arrangement to make sure a buyer will have any easy time putting the top piece back.
