Play Time ~ My Vintage Treasures on Display






A Peek Into My Cabinet of Curiosities... 
"Stuff is... trophies, evidence of championship hoarding -- finding the perfect rarity that no one else has found. Collecting stuff can be competitive, even if only in the mind. Therefore, showing one's bounty is essential to having stuff. So the vehicle for display is just as essential as the objects themselves." -- 
from The Arrangement of Stuff by STEVEN HELLER
It's Play and Display Time

My stuff is in various states of arrangement, piles, and storage. It all makes me happy. But the most fun does come from getting it out and making a display/vignette. It's my adult form of playing with my toys. Even if they do have to go back into their storage boxes.

I have taken some of my many collections 'on the road' and done displays at our public library, and at antique bottle shows. And of course I get to 'play and display' my stuff when I set up at an antique show, or in my sales-showcases at the antique mall. Even selling on ebay let's me play with my treasures.

This post is just a few photos of some of my treasures, some I have sold, some I still have...
