New League assignment from Brian this week. We are to present a shelf display of things in our collection that showcases our love of pop culture.
My displays are not what they used to be. I used to have an entire downstairs filled with Star Wars memorabilia. However, since I moved to Florida, that all went into storage and now I only have a few out of the way spots where I can display some of my favorite items.
One of those spots is a bookshelf in my closet.
This bookshelf houses the books on my “To Be Read” pile. And the shelves are double stacked. Some are books I’ve never read before and some are re-reads. Within this shelf you’ll find movie novelizations, comic book novels, Star Trek and Star Wars novels, Six Million Dollar Man and Bionic Woman books, etc, etc. But, as you can see, there are more than just books here.
Hanging on the wall in back you can see the Muppet Christmas Carol poster I have up for the holiday season. That poster changes a few times a year. For Halloween I had up From Dusk till Dawn. On top of the shelf on the left side I have a stack of comic trade paperbacks including some of the Marvel Ultimate books and several Fantastic Four collections. On top of the trades is a shadow box display of my running medals. It includes the bib and medals I received for finishing my first two marathons and several other half-marathons.
Next to those on the right side I have two DVD sets. The black box is the complete Six Million Dollar Man set from Time-Life. It’s awesome. I’ve currently watched through Season 1. On the far right is the Buffy Chosen Collection DVD set featuring all 7 seasons. I really love the first 3.5 seasons of this show. But I’m currently selling it on eBay right now, so if you want it, you can try to buy it.
One other display that I have is a small divided section curio containing some of my Star Wars figures.
It features a mix of new and vintage figures. I tried to theme each section a bit. In the upper left is the stormtrooper section. Lower right is the vintage bounty hunter section. Various Lukes are in the lower left. I should probably switch these figs out a bit more to change up the displays but I haven’t.
Essentially, those are the only shelf displays I really have left. Someday, I’ll post a pictorial essay of my previous “Star Wars Room” pictures.
UPDATE – I forgot to include a pic of my “soda shelf” that I keep at work. It features soda cans from the 80s, 90s and today.
