Nice space and nice collection! Is that in a basement? We don't have basements out here, but sure would be handy for the extra room.

Yes this display is in a section of my basement, I started in a spare bedroom but quickly ran out of room.

What? Running out of room for collections rarely happens...NOT. Never seems to enough room, eh? That's great that you have the space. Nicely presented. My wife is great. She lets me have two rooms in our small home for some of mine. I also have a few items in the garage.

Thanks for posting. Nice to see how others display their collections.

Very nice display you have set up. I'm hoping to start a room myself, get everything out of the closets.

If I lived in California and had a basement, I would not put anything or anyone in it anyway.......Easy way to get buried in an earthquake... :lol:

Yeah, I have lived here in CA all my life, 57 years, and have felt one earthquake back in about 1997. Pretty weird sensation. If we had a basement where I am at would be full of water right about now.

Wow, that is a lot of shaking going there. I saw that 5.8 quake in 2016. That's getting up there!

How many years did it take to collect all of these artifacts? Amazing collection. Oh, and yes Zeph, the 5.8 was about a 45 second shake down. That is a long time when it feels like the walls are going to fall down. :shock:
