Fall Craft Fair Displays

 Today while waiting to go to a meeting at the school I'm working on some displays for the fall craft fair. I'm working on getting my applications in and they need pictures of your booth space with the application so that's what I'm working on.
This morning I bought the hardware to put together the 3 tier display for jewelry and small handmade items. I have been collecting the old tins for a while, the bottom tier is a very old tin bundt pan, the center teir is a very old pie tin, and the top tier is an old flash pan. I still have some work to do on this one, I plan to collage old papers into the bottoms and cover the hardware with old papers, paint and fabric plus I will be adding a sign at the top, maybe with chalkboard paint so I can change the prices or just write a saying? Still thinking.
The other display is a towel holder that I will use to hang necklaces, small bags, etc. I painted it white...

And I found this old trunk drawer with wonderful faded blue print paper, LOVE IT! I'm going to clean it up, seal the old paper and reglue it where it's peeling off and maybe add some vintage images to it. I plan to use it to hold some of my collages.
Is it wrong that I love this?

And when I found that old trunk drawer I also found these two fun pieces...

What are you working on?

That drawer has a really lovely patina to it , love the paper; a perfect cabinet for holding old things.

About the quake.....You are two very lucky people! My aunt lives there, I'll have to drop her a note and see how she is doing. We had one last summer and it was unusual for our region....a little scary.

Enjoying your blog Thespa.
Thanks so much for the tutorials.
