    I tend look at the purpose of things. Is it something I could use or just decorative. I do have small collections, like 20's-40's tobacco tins, cigarette pack and cigarette case. For those I just display them together with an old ashtray on a large radio or dresser. Same for some of the other items I have sets of. I got a matching set of transiter radios,a small base model and the larger model and put them together on a dresser. For the most part I like things to look natural and sometimes look through old magazines or family photos for ideas for recreating the 30's-40's look.

    Simply stunning. I would love to spin some of my 78s in that room.

    I had my epiphany about a year ago. The amount of unnecessary material I had accumulated was weighing me down and I despaired when forced to examine it. I finally started by calling a local auctioneer who specializes in estate sales and started putting things in his auctions. I am not done yet, but I have made a respectable start and have been surprised how much better I feel about what remains. I have also given things away to anyone who showed an interest and have had several bonfires of jetsam and flotsam. I have kept what I like and use and no longer purchase things simply because they are available and catch my eye.
