Wow - that's actually pretty awesome - I'd never get it, but it is pretty awesome.

I don't think my AD10 will fit in it though. :lol:

Not in US. :lol: If I shop now for a basic wooden display cabinet of similar size I would probably pay close to that price, but would not get moisture control or lights.

Luckily, our house came with a few display cabinets, so I am all set for now. :D

What, you mean that my habit of piling stuff up on my thrift store table is no longer in style??

Outdated,

Several years ago there was a local realtor advertising on the radio.

They said they had a house for everyone, including ones with Equatorial rooms! 😆

So I took a spare room and now have an Equitoral Room.

Took about a year, now even Wifey calls it that.
