Creating Display Buddie was a fun and creative moment in my life. I wanted to hang a vintage Chinese tray that my father had given me but it is delicate and deserved a proper hanging solution that showcased it’s beauty rather than overwhelmed it with some sort of heavy “decorative” hanging device. Once I understood how I could hang the tray with a prototype of Display Buddie I realized my invention would also hang my collection of Italian ceramic plates and platters…. And more.
Both the Chinese tray and Italian plate displays, while completely different from each other in style and age, remind me of special moments in my life, and I love to have them on view in my home. What I didn’t expect from inventing Display Buddie was the feeling of satisfaction that comes to me when I hear and see how Customers use them for Plate Displays in their own homes.
Recently I learned from a customer that Display Buddies can be used for Plate Displays and to solve a “problem.” Here my Customer uses vintage plates to design an eye-catching piece of wall decor, which also serves the practical purpose of creating a stove back-splash.
A touching tribute was created by this Customer using Display Buddies… he wanted his two beloved dogs’ photos and matching Bowl Displays to have pride of place on a wall in his home.
This Customer collects and displays antique plates and platters. She loves to bring them down off the wall and use them for large family meals at the holidays. This past week she bought 2 more Display Buddies since she is adding more Display Plates to this collection for Thanksgiving!
Each Plate Display photo tells a miniature story about my Customer’s lives and what’s important to them. I am grateful that they chose to share them with me.
