    Red face Those of you who display your collection on a vanity tray, could you share photos?

    I love the aesthetic appeal of fragrances displayed on a vanity tray. I've been hunting for one on eBay and there have been a few heart-breakingly gorgeous ones (usually with a wallet-breaking price). Could you guys post some pictures of the trays you use and where you found it?

    Inspiration photo example:

    I too love fragrances displayed on beautiful trays and vanities. Unfortunately my room is too sunny and warm for such an indulgence so all my pretties are kept in the dark.

    I once saw a footed tray that someone had rigged up to hold their sample vials- I fell in love with it and searched high and low for one, but they're nigh on impossible to find

    I love it too for the beauty aspect, but mine would need a sea of trays and would then get all dusty in our old house, so they are in a dark and cold cupboard in alphabetical order by house.

    Same here. lt is a beautiful display, but it pains me to see all those lovelies exposed to so much light.

    It looks beautiful but unfortunately light exposure isn't great for maintaining the integrity of the scent, so I store mine in boxes in the cupboard. Its not very pretty though!

    I know, I was looking at the picture in the first post and was thinking that Calypso Mimosa is going to turn yellow in a week or so in that gorgeous tray!

    *sends sunlight via telepath* I shouldn't complain, but its getting a bit tedious having to wear Summer frags all the time, grass is always greener, huh?

    I'm pretty sure the tray was moved to a location with natural light just for the photo. I know sunlight isn't good for fragrances and I don't plan on putting mine in a place with sunlight. Still love the trays as a display! Anyone got one to share?

    I like to see them displayed, too! (Even though I keep mine in a dark closet like contraband - that is so boring). I like the trays that have antique lace and embroidery under glass. I've seen old mirrors and picture frames repurposed into vanity trays, with vintage wallpaper or fabric laid under the glass of the frame. I quite like all that shabby chic stuff. It doesn't suit our house, but I like it the way little girls like rainbow ponies.
