A Rusty Pair of Roller Skates

I'm always looking for unique ways to display my business cards while I'm at an antique or craft show.  I like to have my cards displayed in a couple of different places around my booth, and usually have an extra repurposed holder available just in case someone insists on buying one of them.  This quick and easy business card holder was made from one of the rusty old roller skates I bought at an antique show last month.

It will be perfect just as long as my table is level or a gust of wind doesn't blow through.

I searched through a drawer of miscellaneous junk and came up with one of these sliding window locks for holding the cards.

A dab of E6000 holds it right in place.  I also shot each skate with some clear matte acrylic spray to seal in the rust.

Rolling right along, the twin skate becomes a picture holder with the help of some vintage rhinestone jewelry and stick-on magnets.  I borrowed the Olympic hopefuls from the rusty fence picture holder I posted about last week.  It was meant to be.

I don't think you'd get too far, but it's a fun way to display a vintage game card.

These will adjust up to 2" longer to accommodate a larger picture, plant, votive candle, or even a longer foot desperate for a quick getaway.
