Ventriloquist Central Collection Space Expanding

Not long ago I wrote about the ever expanding Ventriloquist Central Collection and because of expansion, two years ago before the first Ventriloquist Central Birthday Bash, I brought about half of the collection down stairs and created the “Annex.”

Well the collection has expanded quite a bit more in the past two years so I have been a busy bee worker and have expanded the space in the “Annex” (basement .

During the Birthday Bash I used a long black curtain and blocked off a whole section of the basement that housed lots of arts and crafts stuff that Helen saved. I can say none of it was anything that I would have ever used so I decided to pay it forward.

Jason, my son, and I carried all this crafting material and stacks of all kinds of paper out to the front of my home, placed it all in very neat boxes and put up a sign saying ” Free For The Taking” and I am happy to say many folks stopped and took items they liked and even thanked us for allowing them to have these items. I am so happy that all the stuff Helen accumulated will now be used by so many others.

This freed up a whole new section which I have been able to use to display many more of the vent figures for this year’s Ventriloquist Central Birthday Bash. I am now in the process of adding some shelves and will be displaying so much more for the Bash.

All I can say is it is going to be great for all to be able to see very soon!!

Have you signed up for the Ventriloquist Central Birthday Bash?
