Caring For Your Collection In The Best Possible Terms

We all have strange hobbies. You’re likely thinking of one you hold right now. Everyone has their tastes, their interests, their strange fascinations. Some take this further than others. For example, some might find it absolutely fantastic to find every issue of a popular comic that has run for 10 years. Some might collect priceless art. Some might enjoy collecting all of the limited edition aprons sold by a vintage cooking company. No matter what you’re into, you are usually entitled to have it, even if questionable historical memorabilia is your thing.

Caring for your collection in the best possible terms can be difficult though. Storing, preserving, and cataloging your goods can help you enjoy the collection much more, and not only that, pay homage to it. It’s not simply enough to own the items for most collectors. A nice presentation, a solid preservation, or perhaps a worthwhile display can all contribute to the love of your interest in the best way.

Let us explore how you might go about this:

Display Heaven

Why not commit to a beautiful in-home display? It might be that you’d be able to craft your own beautiful room filled with glass panels, stands, descriptive icons and lighting to really help your collection shine. This way you can view your collection in fully glory without having to handle them or expose them to the air, allowing them to remain intact for as long as possible. This can be worthwhile if you have cycled pieces you wish to show other collectors who come to visit, if you wish to run an online Instagram or other feed dedicated to showing your works, and a place for those academically interested to come and check out those pieces in the flesh.

Secure Storage

Sometimes, items have too much value, and you don’t wish for them to be in your home where thieves could potentially target and steal them. Perhaps you wish to secure something before sale, or just know that it’s deeply safe somewhere anonymous. This is why using Easy Store solutions can help you in the best manner possible. Not only will you have somewhere secure and locked to keep those items, but the surrounding environment will be guarded and continually checked by patrols and CCTV, ensuring that your items are safe and even anonymous on the part of those who work there.

Lend To Museums Or Galleries

If your items have any kind of historical or artistic value, you can be sure that curated institutions would absolutely adore to get their hands on some of these pieces on loan. These facilities are often equipped to help spruce up the pieces before showcasing, and will be in the hands of experts who truly care for the integrity of that you have. Investing in a secure and careful transit solution is important, but it can all be worth it to see an institution like this lovingly display your collectors items for everyone to enjoy, and this relationship could prove very fruitful.

With these exciting efforts, a brilliant and valuable collection is sure to be cared for appropriately.

Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginner

~ Disclaimer - this post is just a light hearted look at the very basic blogging tips. I do not have high DA or high stats, but I thought some of the things I have picked up over years may be helpful. Even if just one person takes one thing I've shared as useful info, then this post is worthwhile. This post also contains affiliate links ~ I'm laughing at myself a little bit writing this post as I want to be very clear that I'm not an award winning blogger, I don't have a high da score and I don't really have many page views at the moment. You're probably wondering to yourself why am I even writing this post if I'm not a far flung award winning blogger? Well, this is it. I call myself a blogger, because well I have a blog and I document stuff. I've had my blog for over eight years now and even though I haven't had a breakthrough (yet) I have picked up a couple of things along the way. I have also been asked before by friends about starting a blog, so

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

How to do your cars ITV/MOT in Spain

  ~ Disclaimer - this post is not associated with any ITV centres in Spain or anything that they maybe connected with them. I am also not a car mechanic of any sorts and I would always advise to seek professional advice. This post is simply sharing my experience of an ITV ~ It's that time when Marks car is due it's ITV, which is similar to the UK's MOT. In Spain your car has it's first ITV check when it's 4 years old. Then every 2 years up until the car is 10, then it's checked every year. When living in another country and not really knowing the lingo, these type of things can seem a little daunting at times and it may feel easier to just throw money at things to get someone to do it for you.  Which I think happens a lot when it comes to getting your cars ITV. A lot of garages offer a service where they will do a pre-itv check and then take your car to the test centre and do it for you. Sounds great doesn't it. Which it is don't get me wrong at all, it&
