I have always loved Pink and Green together. So I have been planning to create a Vintage Pink and Green Hutch Display for awhile. I just had to consolidate a few more of my pieces and look for a couple more ‘bargains’ to add to the display 🙂

Here’s a sneak peak!
I was lucky I already had quite a bit of pink and green, including vintage pink and green doilies, vintage pink and green potholders and quite a few teacups! My plan was to find some lovely pink and green depression glass, but since these are highly collectible, the cost of depression glass can be quite dear. I did have some green depression glass that I found last summer on my trip to Saskatchewan.
Recent Pink and Green Finds:
I had found a small green depression glass plate with a pattern called “Florentine” in March to go with my St. Patrick’s Day collection at a local Vintage Fair for $5 CAD. When I got home I realized it matched my other larger oval plate.
I also had some vintage inkwells in green and antique bottles, books and teacups!
For pink, I did have a small trinket tray in pink depression glass, but needed to find some more. Fortunately, our local consignment store had a couple of pink depression glass items in their ‘reduced’ section! My luck! I got each plate for $7 CAD.
Here is the pink shelf, with a few of my pink teacups, posy’s and my growing Royal Albert American Beauty pattern!
The bottom shelf is dedicated to clear depression glass. There are a couple of heirloom pieces, with a serving tray and a couple older bowls from my mother. As well there is a cream and sugar in the Jeannette Homespun pattern. The creamer was from my grandmother, the sugar I found locally a few years back.
I had also found this vintage cream and sugar in Jeanette cubist pattern depression glass at a local thrift store for $5 CAD.
There are definitely deals to be found if you look around, are patient and not too fussy about what you get. For me, since I am creating new displays all the time, it makes sense not to spend to much on most of the pieces, but have a few central pieces that are ‘showpieces’.
Here is the full display.
Hope you enjoyed this Vintage Pink and Green Hutch Display. Don’t forget to check out my other displays from my blog menu at the top, such as my Vintage Pink Tea Party Display. Thanks for stopping by!
