So for the past 5 years, I have had the following gorgeous medal display:
I guess it is a little sad, that poor lamp shade. Over the past year, I noticed race medal hangers from Allied Steel popping up in blog giveaways. I was not the lucky winner in any of the contests, so my medals stayed on my sad sad looking lampshade.
I threw a few more medals on the lampshade this year. The poor thing was looking like it was about to break. And really, it wasn’t the best way to showcase my hard-earned medals.
Ok fine. If I can’t win one of those danged things I am going to have to buy one.
I hopped online and started looking around at different medal hanger manufacturers, even though I saw lots of Allied Medal Displays reviewed on blogs. The thing is, the more I looked around, the more that Allied Medal Displays stood out as having the best quality, customer service, and reviews.
They have not only have a wide variety with themes of running and other sports, they also offer custom hangers. I totally went for the custom hanger:
I picked the runner because really, that is where I started with endurance sports, and I have a feeling that is what I will always go back to. I picked the big one because, well, I am not even close to being done collecting those things.
This was very easy to install,
I John had it out of the box and on the wall within a half hour. It is very study and attractive, and I am completely pleased with it.
And now, check it out with my medals on it:
When I ordered, I sent an email to Joel Exe at Allied Medals letting him know I would be doing a review. I asked him for a promo code that I could put on my blog. He did that (promo code: caratunkgirl for 10% off) and more! He offered up to one of my lucky readers their very own custom or standard medal hanger!!

Disclaimer: I purchased my Allied Medal Display all on my little lonesome because my sad little lampshade was falling over with all of the sweet race bling I have collected. It was my idea to purchase the display. This review is my own honest opinion of the product. The giveaway is hosted Allied Medals (thank you!)
