Dude, seriously? I've been doing this for 25 years?! That just can't be right. That would make me ... ok, let's not go there just yet.
So yeah, been at this for 25 years now, and it has certainly been a ride. Instead of just posting some random items from the collection I thought I'd give you a tour of the Tulgey Wood - virtually of course. I took these photos with my phone nearly six years ago, so they are slightly out of date, but the Tulgey Wood is not currently in photo-ready condition, so these will have to do.
Just outside the Tulgey Wood is this barrister bookcase filled with all sorts of breakable goodies. This has now been replaced by two shorter barrister cases so I don't have to reach on tip toes to get to the top shelf. This case contains the Regal, Goebel, Hagen-Renaker, Weetman, Shaw, MCP, Enesco, Galligani, Zaccagnini, Leeds, Pales, Cuernavaca, and a variety of other currently unknown makers. Its good not living in Southern California for this case alone.
Next begins the wide array of bookcases courtesy of Ikea. Thanks Billy! Along the top are various contemporary cookie jars which have all since been sold, an Elisabeth Gomes tea set, some Japanese tea sets, and on the bottom some vintage cookie jars.
