Fair-Weathered Finds By Becky Tyre

A rustic, all-American look is about finding the beauty in the old and making it new again. Weathered display fixtures and props are a cozy addition to retail spaces and ideal for merchandising vintage, shabby chic, minimalist, country, feminine, primitive, industrial, natural and eco-friendly categories of merchandise.

FlyMeHomeBe Kind. Rewind

Repurposed cable spools stack nicely for a display table in a store that sells handmade and upcycled décor.

The Right Recipe

Wood is the perfect choice for a sleek yet functional wall display featuring utensils and textiles from a fair trade and sustainable tabletop line. By presenting multiples of the products, the unit encourages customers to buy right from the rack.


Room to Bloom

Weathered doors provide the backdrop for colorful floral and garden themed products. Nearly neutral in color, the display props set a warm tone without distracting from the merchandise.


Farm Fresh

Bolder props like this bright yellow orchard ladder attract attention to the display bringing customers closer to view smaller items that are for sale.

Collectors’ Corner

Collectible items like milk bottles, buttons and wooden bobbins are best displayed in groups. Frequently purchased for home décor accents, buyers enjoy seeing them in collections and it encourages multiple sales.
