My shelves were full. I had stuff in drawers and stuck behind other things Apple. I needed more shelf space.
There is an old country store a few miles from my house. It’s opened and closed several times since the 1940’s. On one side of this old single story, wood frame store is a semi-open storage area where I spotted a perfect display for some of my Apple collection. It was wood and old. Nothing fancy, but just the thing.
Two challenges presented themselves, three actually. I had to get the current store owner to agree to part with it. Then I had to get it home. Finally, I couldn’t make more waves about my Apple stuff on the home-front. My wife of 26 yrs is into getting rid of junk and clutter. Me, I’m a collector. An accumulator. And I need more shelf space for my valuables 🙂
Long story short- I got it.
After – just put some things on it to get a feel for how it looks… although I do like the portables on the top- the Apple IIc (1984), Macintosh Portable (1989) and then the PowerBook 100 (1991).
I had to paint it to match my built-in shelves on the other wall.
Oh yeah- you may remember that corner is where I had my original Macintosh, well I moved him to a perfect little spot.
