Chris, Designer
Collages/Miniature Vignettes



Welcome to my world of small antiques and collectibles!  I have  integrated these items into various arrangements that tell their own stories.  These collages make unique gifts and will complement any personal home décor.  Although I lean toward a more vintage approach, any theme or motif of your choice can be utilized.

My miniature vignettes (known as “mini-vini's”, also called "collages") were introduced at the Amish Country Market in Noblesville, Indiana in 1994.  Soon after, they were sold in Dee Acton's antique shop until it was closed.  More recently, I marketed my collages at Cupboard Space (antiques and collectibles shop) in Carmel's Arts and Design District in Indiana.  There are so many frame-able small antiques that can make a statement in an appropriate decorating scheme.  I acquired these “smalls” at antiques shows, flea markets, garage and estate sales, and collectibles shows.  Of course, it is necessary to mix the old with some new items, and that includes the frames as well.

Popular themes have been as follows:  Valentine’s Day, Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, Christmas, Wedding, Baby, Friendship, Children, Patriotic, Sewing, Birthday, School Days, Grandmother, Father, Mother, Gardening, Jewelry, Needlework, scene and room vignettes, collections of like items (miniature antique purses and mirrors, pewter and silver articles, to name a few of my choices) and a HUGE Miscellaneous section.  The categories on the website have been categorized by Holiday and Non-Holiday.  They are also grouped into the above categories.  The prices on the website are at retail prices to individuals.  Business owners may buy at wholesale.  This depends on the number and value of actual antiques I used on a particular collage.

This cottage industry enables me to be creative with my passion for antiques.  It is a real challenge to design a lay-out in a limited space.  A popular-sized frame is 11”x14” (though many of mine are not that large), but even two or three small items in a 5”x7” or 8”x10” frame can be very effective.  I would be agreeable to custom-make a collage using personal items that you would provide to me to design, implementing a theme of your choice.   This would also enable me to reduce the cost of the collage to you.  These are truly creations that are “one-of-a-kind”, although occasionally I can find some similar items to attempt to re-create a previously-designed collage.

        I have selected the collages below from my inventory to display as examples of what I have designed.  Each collage is named and priced.  Please note the codes in pink:  NFSPC means the collage in is my collection but not for sale at this time.  SOLD  or SOLDMSS means that the collage is no longer available and is not in my inventory. Please scroll down and view 172 of my collages that I have designed and assembled.  Then, after viewing this page, please come visit my Christmas Room !

  *** Please feel free to contact me via email with questions or inquiries.

 Note   I am currently looking for another location to outlet my collages for sale in and around the Indianapolis, Indiana area.  Please forward my site to any antique dealers or shops that carry antiques who may be interested, or who may just enjoy viewing my
collages.  Thank-you so much!
