There is a fine line separating those of us who collect and those folks who make it on to reality tv shows like "Hoarders" & "Clean Sweep". Every collector sooner or later runs into the problem of space. Our mantra is "I know I have one of those - I just can't find it". All my stuff is in tubs. I have a storage locker filled with the niece Pookie on one side, my mom GeeGee on the other, & me. The Hubbs even has a box or two. I hate to keep my treasures packed away but I only have so much space.
To resolve the issue somewhat I picked up a neat old hutch to use for storage and display. I saw the hutch at a tag sale. It had what I thought was $150.00 dollars written on the price tag. In an effort to get the seller to step his price down a tad I started asking about the hutch and the price. The seller quips at me "Lady, it's 15 bucks - how much lower do you want me to go?" SOLD Darlin - I slapped the money into his hand and carried my new hutch home where we now revolve displays around the seasons or holidays or whatever else strikes our fancy.
