Forget decluttering, abandon minimalism. What everyone really needs - and everyone really loves - is stuff. Stuff that provokes memories, stuff that brings happiness. All of our stuff amassed over the years has a purpose and place in our lives, so why are we trying to get rid of it?
That’s a question Safestore Self Storage are asking with their new video series Stuff Is Great, which offers a glimpse into the brilliant world of collectors. For the late Gary Wells, his love of vintage radios began early on, and continued throughout his life. Having nurtured a love of all things electrical throughout his childhood, he went on to have a huge number of radios in his possession, and they were all held dearly to him.
In this episode of Safestore’s video series - aptly titled The Radio Collector - they visit Wells’ collection at the British Vintage Wireless and Television Museum in West Dulwich. Not only has collecting vintage radios been a real passion for him, but now it’s offering new generations a chance to see the technology of the past.
