Building a Display, Part III: Case in Point
For those of you who are late to the party, we're looking at some simple display options for collectors. Take a gander at Part I and Part II if you missed them the first time.
There's no shortage of high end shelving units, lit cases, and antique cabinets you can buy to show off your collection.
But I can't afford any of those things. So let us discuss the poor collector's options.
The majority of my shelves came from Ikea or the The Container Store. If you're looking to show off toys but still want some cash left over to buy said toys, I suggest you familiarize yourself with these locations.
Display cases are a little more complicated. I recently picked a few up, though, and wanted to talk about options.
Like this "Multi-Level Doll Exhibit Box" I bought at the Container Store. It includes three movable levels, allowing you to choose how you want your figures displayed. It's relatively cheap - about ten bucks when it's not on sale.
Spice Rack from The Container Store, supported by Vases from Michaels and CD shelves from Staples, containing/covering/surrounded by... ah... I'm not even going to try.
