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. Below is some of the corkscrew bycatch that I have acquired over time.
My corkscrew buying hasn't slowed down, quite the contrary. With the corkscrews comes more unintended non corkscrew items.
I managed to acquire 4 vintage gadget canes in the pursuit of corkscrew gadget canes. 3 have concealed lighters and one is a pool cue.
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.
