That's a very impressive collection!  The shelving is quite nice also.  

What's the box on the 2nd shelf from the bottom with the Elmore art from the Metzer basic set?

That's the kinda shelving I want!  Wouldn't mind filling it like that either :)  At the very least, the next place I move to has to have more wallspace for shelving units.  As it is now, I feel like I live and sleep in a library :)

Here is my clutter problem - I'm out of space stacking things higher and its starting to pile up in front.

The good stuff is hiding behind the doors on the bottom left and the palm tree is an illusion to make it seem warming here in Canada :)

I believe that is a TSR licensed puzzle.

Nice picts, Mike. Must feel great to get it all up. Do you feel like the collection has more room to grow now?

Thanks for all the comments  :D . I am glad to finally be able to display the collection.

Exactly right. It is a 551 piece puzzle licensed by TSR.

I have plans to remove the store bought bookshelf and replace it with one matching the smaller one. My want list is down to about 85 - 90 items now. Mostly different printings. I think this room will hold everything for a while, but you never know. I am always looking  :) .

Thats how mine was in the old place.

btw. You have some serious orb activity going on in one of those pictures. You might have to call in Ghost Hunters if you are also experiencing other odd occurances.  :wink:

I thought about editing those out, but I was afraid they would get mad  8O .

Was thinking, I used to read and use my collection to design stuff.

Now I worry about it going to someone who will appreciate it.  Once I mailed the last of the stuff off to Paul (other than a shelf of things I decided to keep), I felt at peace.  Even if he never gets around to selling it, it is with someone who will appreciate it.


Regards,



Stephen

I'm choosing to post this somewhat related question in this thread because, well, I thought this thread was fun and I love seeing the pictures that were posted (show more :wink: ). Some amazing collections on here!

I was wondering, since I now have somewhere to display my books, is there any bagging product along the lines of the magazine bags for box sets? Or any other suggestion on how to keep box sets safe from the everyday household elements without outright packing them away? (My local hobby store has no clue.)

They make me a little nervous sitting on the shelf, getting moderately dusty, sliding against the shelves when I want to pull them out when the books are so nicely bagged.


Waterdeep? Never heard of it.

Ultra Pro just came out with a new product...."Role Playing Size Bags". They are great, and are just the right size for a hardback.  For a boxed set, my choice would be "Life Magazine" sized bags by Bags Unlimited.
