This from Blog Reader Tallbear who originally asked me about storage and display.
I am sending the two pics showing the display cases.
The Squash and Buckles I had purchased some anti-tarnish cloth and took it to the craft shop that was going to frame it for me. I had the shop cover the inside back with that then mount the items on it using stick pins and frame them. It is quite a large wall mounted display.
The two watch cuffs and the bracelet, I found a display case for baseballs at a craft store, got one for three baseballs. cut two pieces of Styrofoam (swim noodle) and covered them with the anti-tarnish cloth and put the watch cuffs around them and the bracelet in the middle.
Hopefully the anti- tarnish cloth will keep them polished. Any way, hope this will give others some ideas.
Thanks so much for the ideas. Please let us know if either or both methods prevent tarnish.
This ties in nicely to the last part of my series on storage to prevent tarnish which will come by the weekend. So stay tuned.
