Just because I haven’t blogged, doesn’t mean I’m not corkscrewing around, I’ve just been screwing off.
I’ve had several arrivals to the Island lately. Some keepers, some trade, some for the website, and some for eBay.
I got an Alligator and an ICCA McBride off the ICCAuctions along with a pair of German Shoes. Now that I’m writing, I haven’t seen those shoes show up yet…
Anyways. Also I’ve snapped up a few other good deals on a Blackington Sterling Boot, a Sterling Bottle Roundlet and a 1937 Popeye!
One more that deserves a mention is a Clough wire double helix corkscrew. It’s got advertising for “Anheuser-Busch” but it’s also marked “Clough’s Patent”! Very sweet! And the plating is in great shape. A welcome addition to the collection.
