Some cabinets are designed specifically for certain collectibles. There are die-cast display cases that are designed to showcase miniature die-cast collectible cars. NASCAR fans who collect miniature versions of their favorite NASCAR drivers' cars can enjoy their collection in a case designed either in a stand alone version or a wall mounted version. For such a collection, glass shelves are usually desired so that all angles of the car can be seen and appreciated without having to take the car out. More handling equals more risk of damage or wear. Depending on the collectible, even natural oils from handling can depreciate the value of the collectible. Coins and stamps are especially susceptible to surface damage merely by handling.
The best cabinets have also a locking storage and drawers in the base. Some manufacturers will even add additional shelves and shelf support, to make the storage of any items in the cabinet simpler and easier. The wood used to make the shelves has grain finishes, and can then be polished to give them a feel of elegance. A glass display cabinet made of oak, mahogany, or any other hardwood can last for longer, and is more appealing. The wood is stronger, and even after many years, the cabinet will not have aged much.
If you are looking for a display cabinet, but do not want to spend a lot of money, you could look for a used cabinet. Often people will advertise their used pieces of furniture for sale in the classified section of the newspaper. You can also check at furniture stores for any clearance or discontinued items that will have reduced prices. You can also choose to purchase an unfinished wood cabinet that you can paint or stain yourself to match your décor. An unfinished piece will cost less than a finished one. Whatever your special treasures may be, you will find a lot of different ways that you can show them off in your home.
