    Hi guys,
    Status for 2014.
    My display cabinet is full :-/
    As I see it, I have a choice of 3 !
    Stop collecting :-(
    Put up 1 more cabinet ( don't have the space !) :-(
    Start making "changing exebitions" like the museums do :-I
    Or I could simply get rid of all the junk, that is either not my core interest or upgrade the lesser good pieces !
    A luxury problem actually ;-)

    Mfg

    You need to get creative.....First of all build a mahoosive wind chime using all your EK's and some fishing line and hang it near a window. A stunning display!

    A problem I would not mind having, very nice display. Maybe getting a bigger cabinet would be the solution, you could move your current display into it and have space for new items.

    Turn the helmets upside-down and place all the crosses/badges inside. Voilą! problem solved - more room for more crosses and badges!

    Very nice collection Marc. i myself would get another cabinet and get rid of the couch or a chair or something like that.
    By the way, my war room is full and my wife says the same thing. "Stop collecting. You have enough".
    Oh well, Just my thoughts.

    At first I thought you meant to say that you were getting rid of the wife......... .........to make more room....

    I can free up some space.....l'm looking for a nice EK1 and Gold Wound badge

    But, really you have a great set up there..Have you thought of putting some small clear plastic shelves in the cabinet to put medals on top and below?

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated
