I’ve started collecting vintage brooches. I now have 2 and this is slowly growing. I am keen on finding a way to store it at the same time as displaying it.

I Flickr-ed for some inspiration and I came across these:

The easiest way is to pin them to a bulletin board. That way, all your brooches are displayed on the one surface, which means you can see them all in one surface.

Displaying them in a pretty pink footed bowl or urn.

Using vintage brooches on vintage mannequins (without them scary heads!). I’m not a real fan of this because the mannequins need extra floor space. They also mean that you can’t see all the brooches in one hit. You got to turn them around to select one.

A wire frame to hang behind your door or on the wall…

A column of vintage brooches, must be made of foam. Again, you can’t see everything on the one surface.

Plastic sleeve pockets. Not a bad idea. Not a pretty display though.

Most of the methods above mean that you have to do plenty of dusting. Which I think is unnecessary. So the search continues for the perfect solution.
