After getting rid of the old display shelf in my dining room I realized I'd have nowhere to put my Santas this year. I knew I wanted to build another shelf and the idea evolved into building one to look like an over sized letterpress tray. I designed it so that the cubbies would be the perfect sizes to house my Santas.
I have been collecting Santas since I was in my early twenties. It started out as ornaments and then progressed to figurines. My husband buys me one every year as well as some family and friends. It has slowed down quite a bit in the past few years. I realized I cant possibly display all of them without it looking like crazy town in the house. A collection looks best when grouped together rather than randomly placed all around the house, but a collection this large needs something a little special to make it work. This is not even half of them, I just chose the ones that fit my taste for this year.
