|I have to use this Welsh Dresser to store my collection. The wife likes to keep the rooms of our house 'in keeping' so no nasty modern furniture is allowed. This photograph shows a part of my collection AFTER we had sorted it all out.|
Asking someone to remember something they have forgotten is a rather whimsical, if impossible, activity. After all, we all tend to forget things. Now this is a rather abstract way to begin a blog post, though I can assure you that there is method in the madness.
Stuart, a fellow collector of old Citadel from Essex, visited me at home the other day and after a little poking through the lead pile in order to set up a few trades, we started to delve a little deeper into my horde. This short exploration into my collection quickly transformed into a thorough sort out and I discovered I owned several items that I had completely forgotten about.
By far the best find was this little rarity. Which Stuart so ably models in the photograph below. A still sealed pack of old Citadel Colour paint brushes!
I have no idea where they came from on when I bought them. No idea at all!
|My collection was pretty much just shoved in the cupboard and had the doors closed on it. We pulled everything out and took further material from the bedroom cupboard. The White Dwarfs were even put in the correct order!|
With this in mind I am going to ask you this. How well do you know YOUR collection? Is it spread about the house in various locations? Is it collecting dust in some attic or cellar? Well, how about you head off to the place where your stash is the greatest and have a rummage. Can YOU find something you completely forgot you had?
