Repurposed for Bling

The jewelry room at the Shoppe is an eclectic blend of repurposed items.

Take for instance this restaurant prep table with loads of pot hooks.  We temporarily placed it in the jewelry room while we rearranged.  While it was sitting amidst the jewelry waiting to be moved, I caught a glimpse when walking through the room and the hooks jumped to life and I thought, "that would be a wonderful jewelry display."  Who knew? Talk about Serendipity!

I yanked the price tag and loaded it up with jewelry. 


It holds piles and piles of jewelry.....I love it!
I bought a huge stack of these garden seed screens a while back. They’ve been waiting in storage for their next life.

They didn't find their purpose in the garden, they found it in the jewelry room at the Shoppe.

With a little help from some cool magnets and burlap, they are now the perfect display props!


And, what’s that cool metal piece displaying earrings in the back?

It’s a commercial baking pan used for hamburger buns.

These pretty rhinestone hair accents are right at home in a vintage dental tool tray.

Old wire garden topiaries are just perfect for displaying earrings.

Funnels have been a longtime resident in the Shoppe jewelry displays.   


Bottles are nothing new, but I do love the way the jewelry looks on the turquoise bottles.



Love this old ironing board, I'm always on the hunt for unique and quirky display pieces.

I think it's one of the things that makes the Shoppe unique and special.

By the way, First Monday is this week and we're all stocked up on bling....big time stocked up!

The Shoppe opens at 9am on Thursday morning!


Hope to see you there!

Looks great! I love repurposing "junk" to display my jewelry on too. It's so much more fun that a boring row of black velvet display boards!! We've been so busy at our booth the last two months I haven't been able to get into your shop but I told the girls they are gonna have to hold down the fort long enough for me to make a LaurieAnna's run this month!! Cya then :)
