The SEISM: My Collection

(Everything here is personal opinion, and not in any way a recommendation. Nothing is for sale, I'm just offering a look if you're interested)


 

I jokingly refer to this corner as the "Small, Extremely Inexpensive Space Museum (SEISM)" Technically speaking, it is a mix of artifacts, collectables, and memorabilia. Like many people, I believe the point is to enjoy the item, and the experience it represents, regardless of price paid.
