action toy figures, comic books, movie memorabilia— they are not fine china, but should be displayed and handled carefully as well. here are Joanne Bohol’s tips for maintaining collections of fan boys and girls.
Joanne recommends letting go of pieces that don’t have any more personal or financial value. “You have to prioritize. It’s going to be hard, but you can do that by holding a swap party with like-minded fan boys and girls. That way, your pieces will go to someone who will appreciate them.”
“Identify what you love the most, and place it in the part of the room where you see it first.” You can allocate a niche, shelf, or cabinet with lighting to showcase your treasures.
“some collectibles have ready-made cases available. otherwise, you can source for them at department stores or have cases customized.” You can find display cabinets and shelving at The landmark, sm home, Wilcon Depot, and at mandaue Foam.
Dust, moisture, and the elements can destroy pieces in your collection. “Take them out and clean them. These are dust collectors if you don’t keep watch,” says Joanne. You can store valuable, delicate comic books and graphic novels in comic book bags, which are available online.
