What a great idea!!! Never even occurred to me to use a jewelry display....is it lighted as well? I could load that thing up and sit and watch Johnnies go by, glinting in the light, for a good long time..... :thumbsup:

Very cool display case. How on earth did you find that??? :confused:
Here's the story............ While browsing an "antique" shop in Menona, Wisconsin last week I saw this case filled with jewelery and trinkets. I have wanted one of these for a long time but since it was being used to sell stuff I figured they wouldn't want to part with it. Oh well...... some day maybe. :(
A while later I found my wife talking with the person at the front desk who in turn was talking on the phone to the person that owned this. A few moments later a deal was made and now it's mine. :thumbsup: You just have to love it when your wife supports you in your hobby! Thanks Sandi! I love you!

PS........... these cases are still being made today by the Berg company in Madison, Wisconsin. They run new from $1600 to $1900. I got this one, used of course for $325!

Just would like to say, HATS OFF TO A GREAT THREAD! :) :thumbsup: :)
It's nice when people care enough to give their Johnnies a posh home to live in - you're spoiling them rotten! :p A tip of the hat to your wife for negotiating a nice deal! :thumbsup:
