Google is not my friend on this one.

Halp pleeze!

I'm looking for a shadow box/display frame with internal dividers and a glass front to hold a collection of knick knacks and stop them gathering dust.

Ideally I'd like it to be wood (or fibre board I can paint) and for to be in a bricks and mortar store in Melbourne/Bendigo/Geelong so I can actually check it out to make sure it's really what I need. But please do post links to online options if you know of them.

20 odd years ago they were everywhere but seem to have gone the way of dial telephones and buggy whips.

Any ideas would be welcome -- other than making my own :;):

I’ve seen these (in past years ) in Howard’s Storage, KMart, ikea, Bed Bath & Beyond, and the Reject Shop.

Yes, me too. But not any more unless my searching is really taking a wrong turn (and I normally possess gold star Google Fu)

I will add that shadow boxes without internal dividers are really easy to find -- it's my need for compartments (or shelves) that seems to be the issue.

Perhaps post on the local buy sell swap facebook pages for these locations. I have seen some posted in the Bendigo BSS in recent times.

I saw on a fb page, this shelf set hacked with a front added.

I tried to find something similar for DHs lego minifigs, and ended up getting these (hopefully this link works! It was something like little shop lego display honeycomb... lots of key words!)

Not exactly what I wanted, but they look quite good on a bookshelf and were relatively cheap. I'd still like a display thing like you are describing though so hopefully someone can do even better :)

I've seem them on Amazon. But very expensive.
I've seen them at spotlight - but that was a few years ago.
What I did was buy one from kmart and add the shelves myself.

That's the closest so far -- thank you!
