How To Display Your Vintage CollectablesΒ 

If you purchase a retro display cabinet, it becomes a great way to display all your vintage collectables!

My retro cabinet

This retro cabinet is in my lounge room and is getting fuller by the day! It features all my retro collectables and my crystal collection on the bottom shelf.

I picked this great cabinet up for $1 on eBay. It was an amazing buy and the most amazing lady was selling it. She was so excited to see my rockabilly look. The cabinet was her mums and told me about all the retro items she used to display in it. I expressed my regret that I was only paying $1 but she confirmed that this wasn’t about the money, she just wanted someone to cherish the cabinet as much as her mum did. 

That night, I finished setting up the cabinet and sent her a photo of the finished look. She was overjoyed to see the cabinet being loved as much as her mum had and sent the photo to her brother as well, and they were both in tears. She brought me to tears as well when she told me how happy she was that I purchased it and loved it, just like her mum!

$1 brought joy to my life and their lives as well. Learning the history of the cabinet just added to my joy!

How do you display your retro collectables? Send me photos of your cabinet. I would love to see them!
