Books? Hats? Toys (stuff like vintage jacks or dominos, vintage dolls might be creepy)? We used a bunch of vintage oil lanterns. Maybe a table or two of vintage photographs? We had a table devoted to old family wedding photos.

Books – stack some vintage copies of your favorite books

Picture Frames – gilded frames stacked and leaned against eachother, some or all could even have old family photos in them

Sewing – A vintage singer sewing machine and bobbins of thread or jars of old lace

Apothecary Bottles – Variety of antique apothecary bottles/jars

I love this idea!  How about:

Lanterns

Board games

English tea (tea set)

Traveling (vintage suitcase, postcards, etc.)

Music (old music sheets, an instrument, etc.)

Art supplies (pigments, paints, paintbrushes, palette)

Science (vintage science equipment — microscopes, etc. – can be really beautiful!)

Navigation (antique sextants, octants, maps)

Biscuit canisters (the old aluminum kind)

Mercury glass jars and holders

I also agree with the books and sewing ideas.

My friend just had a vintage themed wedding and she made jam in little vintage jars with the vintage fabric over the top tied with an elastic band. They looked amazing!

What about a vintage candy table? Butterscotches and the like?
