When I had a bricks and mortar shop, I had a table of jewellery and three large vintage cantilever jewellery boxes lined with silk scarfs to display the jewellery cards, see last photo. I was often asked if they were for sale and now they are! I have my own Mela Jewellery boxes, they are perfect for keeping vintage jewellery in.

The three items displayed in the jewellery box worth £30 and are included in the price, as a special nod to the shop.
