SO Unusual Accessories
Whenever I need a finishing touch on a coffee table, for a small wall area, or to be used as a centerpiece 1 look for something unusual that doesn’t cost a lot. Sometimes it’s fun to imagine what small luxury you’d like to receive as a gift and then buy it for yourself.
Marine-related objects are of interest to many collectors and while some are quite expensive, there is always something for everyone’s pocketpost. For example, someone who enjoys fishing as a pastime might like to display colorful fishing lures. I’ve seen beautifully painted metal and wooden fish decorating the walls of a family room. Painted buoys are often better suited to hanging on the wall than for use on a boat. Ship models come in different sizes, quality, and prices and can look terrific over a mantel, in a postshelf, or on top of an armoire, for example. For those interested in marine artifacts you might look for seafaring paintings, beautifully framed maps, and fish prints, a brass telescope, sailor’s valentines, and scrimshaw.
Boxes of All Sorts
Lots of people collect boxes, both old and new, and they’re easy to find in antique shops, flea markets, and thrift shops. Boxes can be both good-looking and practical. I have an old thread box with a company name stenciled on the front. Inside I display spools of silk thread I found at a yard sale. Stacks of Shaker boxes and old spice boxes are among others I’ve seen in Early American homes.
