Very nice collection, I cannot believe I have never seen this post.

I plan on finishing some wood and hanging it on the wall so I can hang my wall phones on it, they currently sit proped up on the wall on top of my dresser.

Nice pick-ups, Russ.  They do appear upside down here but when I click them and they enlarge right-side-up.

My wife, Kathy, found a new glass display shelf for my phone room.  I placed a few into my sets in my secret "Amazing Shrinking Machine" and they all fit nicely. 

I placed the mini 500 sets on top; the mini princess sets and princess knickknacks on the second shelf; the third shelf has my toy phones; the bottom shelf has one toy and misc. heavier sets to weigh it down. 

Once the minis were off the top of my main display case, I was able to set up and plug in my Mushroom set and Speakerphone set. Overall it make for a better display.  Change is good!
