8 years along, and still my favorite thread to visit for a break from the Western Hemisphere.


Thank you Curran. That is a great compliment. Mark

Hi. Well we have installed another display here in Melbourne. It is a small display but nice swords and fittings are there for the publics enjoyement. I will attached more detailed photos and descriptions of what’s on display later. Again Colin has done a great job.

Interestingly the display is at the Box Hill Returned Servicemas League or RSL. They are a progressive club and are interested in Swords As Art theme. Melbourne collectors go and check it out. As with all such clubs you need to sign in. It has a nice restaurant attached too, so maybe you can include lunch.

Colin or I would be happy to meet any members of the message board at the RSL to discuss the display. Cheers

I'm ready to retire, sell this house, and more to Melbourne.

I'd thought Western Japan or Busan, but Australia will be fine.

 

Thank you guys for keeping my Zen escape thread alive.

Hi Curran. Your compliments are always appreciated. Only after a couple of days this display is a huge hit, the feedback has been great. This will run for about 4 months. Why not come to Melbourne for a holiday? The hospitality will be 1st class.

If the house sells, I will.

I'd swim there, if it would move things forward.

Today we enjoyed meeting up with fellow collectors at the display. It was a pleasure to meet some new faces, like minded enthusiasts, so our circle grows. For those who couldn’t make it, see you next time. Mark

On Sunday I finally made my way to Melbourne to see this beautiful display and it was well worth it. The blades and fittings are amazing in person and some of the koshirae was just as pleasurable to see.
Thank you Colin and Mark for setting up such a great display.
It was such an honor to meet everyone and thank you for making me and my daughter feel so welcome. I very much look forward to the next time I spend time with this wonderful group.
Also a huge thank you to Bazza for recommending this to me and the introductions.

Hi Alan, thanks for the compliment. Our association with the Art Gallery of NSW and NGV has been very fulfilling. Not sure when/if things will happen again. Interesting that the Samurai arms and armour have been the most popular exhibits over the years. They should do it again while us old time collectors are still around.......and sane. Will keep in touch with you.
