Morning all,

There must be some fascinating shelf content out there, perhaps in dens, man caves, sheds, garages, offices and so on.

Let's see a few photos of shelves with eye-catching gems on them - not just toys, but other memorabilia, prized tools, books, photos, basically anything that's old and above all - interesting to fans of old stuff Smile

Here are a few to begin with:

Some of my radio collection. All electrically restored. Some I've refinished the cabinets on too, but I prefer to leave the original finish alone if its not too scratched up or suffering from a woodworm attack.

I have an old GEC Bakelite radio on the shelf, dated 1939. Lovely shape to it but alas not in working order.

My man cave....a bit chaotic at the moment, have aquired some sheet metal tools that are taking up a load of space! Currently building an extension, until it's done everything is tight Smile

I very much like the look of that workshop, I don't like a workshop that looks like it never gets used.

Great photos. The Salvage Hunter regularly uncovers some gems on his travels and cars as well. On Flog it the other day ,a Scalextric set and a Subbuteo set sold for over 100. Never liked Subbuteo never seen the point of it. My old toy collection went years ago. Those pictures bring back great memories.
