Vintage Props for Effective Displays
by Karen Hess.
(Tucson, Arizona USA)
My displays include vintage doilies, silver dishes, old china, birdcages, and my mannequin ~ Lillie. For this particular event, “Shop the City,” I featured my Day of the Dead creations.
I put a black tulle tutu on Lillie, along with a black tank top and mask. She’s featuring my hand wrought sugar skull necklaces and sugar skull earrings.
I’ll often use objects found at the craft stores, such as the wooden spool organizer.
I paint the item and then incorporate it in my display. In addition, I like to use vintage silver dishes filled with rice or beans to hold rings, which can pose a problem for effective display. This technique works really good.
