Corkscrew collectors acquire new pieces through a number of different channels; Ebay, live auctions, antique stores, etc. One of the consequences of collecting is that occasionally you have to purchase a lot which includes items other than that one rare corkscrew. Because of this, it's not uncommon for the seasoned collector to start to accumulate some unintended purchases.
I recently acquired a corkscrew in a lot that had some of the most unusual bycatch that I've acquired to date.
These are 3 antique toilet paper holders as well as some sort of wall mounted clip which may or may not be a related item. I'm not sure if there are people who collect these, but either way, these will eventually make their way out of my house.
I'm constantly adding new corkscrews to my collection. Any new finds as well as articles which may be of interest to corkscrew collectors will be posted here.
