    How many folks have collections of stuff hidden in a dawer without a place to show them off? I love interesting, quirky and historic items and thankfully have a fair few bits from family. I made a coffee table to show it all off.

    Included are
    Lots of badges from my family past and some of my own like British Airways Junior Jet Club, opening of Euro Disney, school monitor etc.
    Grandfather's dog tags
    WW1 bullet in a matchbox (which shot granfather in the neck)
    Casino chips
    Concert tickets
    You get the idea....a total miscellany

      Hey Duchess, I see some pocket knives in there too! We love pocket knives at CW! :^D
      Some times at estate sales, or from storage units, you can find junk drawers, or boxes. They're fun to go through, and find some lost treasures, you just have to be careful how you dig! Thanks for showing yours! :^)

      I love the coffee table idea, you can change it out with your mood, the seasons or personalize for your guests. Great conversations will follow :-) Fun items in your table. :-)

      Wooohhh! Misceleanous treasures, a chinese compass, Victorian mother of pearl and shell lorgnette, micromosaic bird brooch... so much to talk about here!

      Well spotted Kyratango.

      The Chinese compass was my dads, the micromosaic brid is actually the top on a pill /snuff box and is very delicate. I wish it was a brooch as I would wear it.

      It is a real conversation piece.

      Thank you Master. I just wanted to be able to enjoy the smaller items I have collected and this seemed like a good way to do it.
