PostSubject: New glass display cabinet!!!   Tue Apr 30, 2013 3:52 am

I have been waiting for this day for months! cheers My collection has been on my desk and in my bookshelf for a long time, very disorganized and scattered. I had almost given up on finding a reasonably priced glass display cabinet until I found this beautiful one on sale. I was going to split the price with my parents but it was only $200 so they paid for the whole thing. cheers My mom and dad know how much I love collecting, they are very generous and amazing, and I gave both of them big hugs! I had to rearrange part of my room to make it fit, but I love it so, so much, even if not all of my collection fits in the case. It looks incredible at night with the lights turned off and the cabinet light turned on! Here are some pictures I took today (sorry if they are too large, I resized them but they may still be too big Rolling Eyes):

The first shelf on the bottom cabinet is my frogs and lizards, plus a tiny snake.

The second shelf on the bottom has my birds and a random collection of tiny animals. I might rearrange this one, I need a safe place for my tinies but I want my birds to have more attention.

The last shelf is sealife! cheers

Picture with all the doors open. The upper left door doesn't like to stay open. But I can't complain, this is the cabinet of my dreams! Very Happy I am so happy! Finally my collection looks like a collection, not just random animals scattered around my room! I can't wait to invite people over so I can show off Wink

The light inside the cabinet is fantastic, with the light of hte room turned off, it must be like dreaming.
Mirrors give the impression they are so much more! lol!

Congrats Isabeau , for achieving this . For a collector , it's a heaven on earth to see one's own collection in crowded display . It's AMAZING experience that I have enjoyed many times in the past and now experiencing every day as my new arrivals make my vitrines over flowing .

Thats what an ideal collector's vitrine should be Very Happy

One more suggestion is that when you go for vitrines , please see that they have sleek wooden frames so that the frame doesn't hide your animals .

Thats why . my vitrines are always broad with no frames , just a single glass door exhibiting the whole range of my collections . Inspite of it , scratch the shelves are tightly packed

Your parents surely deserved your hugs! Not mainly because they bought a beautiful shelf but because they are stimulating you to collect. Collecting is not a futile hobby but a great exercise of knowledge, organization and a good way to keep busy our empty moments. They are showing to you their support and surely you'll know how to make they feel proud of you. flower

Very nice display Very Happy I think, having ones collection in a display cabinet automatically makes it look way more valuable and may make viewers act more respectful towards the hobby, even though the figurines aren't bathed in gold or alike.
