I have always been intrigued by what people collect and how they display it. I have a Pinterest board dedicated to this idea and every time I am heading out to a few thrift stores I’ll take a quick look for inspiration. It’s so much more fun to walk through a Goodwill store, thrift shop, flea market or a tag sale with an open mind, but also with an idea….for a collection.
We have sand from every beach, matches from wonderful restaurants and then there’s the stuff that that is tossed out and ends up at Goodwill or tag sales, but when it’s grouped all together….it looks quite lovely. Here’s a few pics of the stuff I’ve been finding lately for just a few dollars. Summer means baseball and a lot of times in the middle of now where, but there’s always a thrift store or two.
I adore old silver trays. Each is similar in size, but the details are very unique. Our two favorite restaurants, Buvette and Via Carota use them as their serving trays. I have several on a wall in our dining room and several in the kitchen. When my mom visits….I bring out the polish!
So what do you collect? And if you are a collector, how do you display it?
