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.
Other display cases have drawers for items like knives. Others have preformed panels where a specific item, like a pistol, perhaps, would be kept in. Others are designed specifically as wall mounted cases for golf balls, baseballs, tennis balls and the such. Others have slots or individual hanging spots for items like sports cards. No matter what type or genre of collectible there is, there are at least several styles of display cabinets to accommodate, protect, and display it. In addition, if you are a collector, a quick search online will provide many links to sites that will often ship for free.
Another tip here is to try not to stock these cabinets too much. One of your big challenges as a store owner is to get people to buy right away and to come in now rather than going away to think about it - because more often than not a purchase is an emotional rather than logical decision. By making it look like you don't have many of these items you can ensure that people will come in quickly to pick them up before they sell out.
