In my spare time I enjoy golfing and antiquing.  Golf is usually relaxing and sometimes very competitive.  One of my arch rivals on the golf course and golf buddy is Josef L’African.  He’s the one who got me into corkscrew collecting.  He always had a great story to tell of his latest find.  This often reminded me of my first love….Beanie Babies!  Yes, I admit it, I was addicted to Beanie Babies.  Buying, selling, collecting, bargaining, and most of all….the thrill of the hunt!  Well, I was instantly hooked on the idea of collecting antique corkscrews.

I am a member of the International Correspondence of Corkscrew Addicts.  I was invited to join the ICCA in February 2012 and officially inducted at the 2012 Chicago Meeting.  Such an honor to be part of this prestigious organization!

I am also a member of the Canadian Corkscrew Collector Club.  The CCCC has open enrollment for anyone interested to join! 

I’ve been collecting corkscrews since 2005.  WOW!  How time flies!  I’ve owned thousands of pieces that range from mechanical to simple, American to German, figural to bone, and anything with a corkscrew!  Although my collection is broad, I’m naturally attracted to American Patents.  Syroco figurines have long been my favorite.  Please feel free to contact me anytime as I’m always open to chat about CORKSCREWS!
