Just wanted to share a very lovely, very cheap display idea I stumbled upon while at Ikea.

I have been looking for something vertical to display various items including magnets and necklace. While at Ikea, I came across some metal bookmarks (called PYNT) that are perfect for display. Each book end cost me only $1.99, and because they are sold separately, you can buy as many or as few as you need.

Magnets stick to it no problem, and necklaces hang nicely because of the grooves cut into the top. Plus, there are flower-shaped cut-outs that add a nice decorative touch, and a piece of colored paper can be placed on the backside and show through the flower holes. The bookend measures W:4 " x H:7".

Considering how expensive necklace busts can be, this $1.99 alternative is quite nice.

That is brilliant! What a good eye you have for spotting this inexpensive (ok...downright cheap) and attractive way to display your goodies.

Now when can I go to Ikea next...   Wink
