SF Good Questions: Miniature Wire City Landmarks?

May 22, 2008

AT:SF, I collect miniature city landmarks made out of wire, and I have two questions...

...I originally found Big Ben, the Chrysler Building and the Empire State building at Target (they are currently available now, but not online). I believe I may have all of them, but I can't be sure because they started releasing these back in the late 2004-'05 time frame and have been releasing a few at a time (but don't count my word on this).

TheHomePort used to sell them, but their website has changed. WestPortStyle sells some. There is only one seller on eBay (Swedemom); I bought the Capitol and White House from her.

My question is this: Does anyone know what other landmarks were made? I actually found the Eiffel Tower at a local gift shop. The only one I'm missing is the Sears Tower (I'd love help finding it).

Also, I have a leading ladder display shelf, which they look awesome on, but as more of the landmarks arrive, I'm having to find other places to display them on. I was wondering what you guys think of putting them on a floating shelf and do you think it would look great putting all the US landmarks on one shelf and the foreign landmarks on the other shelf? (The pictures don't do these guys justice in my opinion, they look so much better in person. As the pieces start to arrive I realize I don't have display room for some of them because they are huge, i.e., the Capitol and the White House.)

Regards,
Rick

Rick,

We don't know the answers to your question about what other landmarks were made, but sure, go for the floating shelves. We'd mix up the pieces, but that's just us. Try it, and if you don't like it, switch 'em around.

Anyone else?
