I’m just going to put it out there… It’s a great time to buy corkscrews! Yeah, I’ve sold 2 pairs of Ladies Legs in the last week, both for under $350. Strange huh? No big deal though. Despite the soft sales, I’ve had some pretty good buys lately.
More? Oh yes. Arguably the most desirable of the lot. A German Celluloid Alligator for $635! I had one in perfect condition 4 years ago and traded it away. I’ve been searching for a worthy replacement ever since. And from the photos, he looks to be in EXCELLENT condition. Happy happy joy joy!
Last but not least… A Williamson Flash type pocket corkscrew in it’s original packaging was listed on our favorite auction site last week. I’ve never seen this before. As you may or may not know, I am addicted to these Flash corkscrews. More specifically ones with the little photo on them that were sold as US tourist souvenirs. Well, I wasn’t about to let this one head to the museum in Romania…! I set an aggressive snipe and hoped for the best. $99.95 Score!!
Collectors from all over are starting to send out their Best 6 of 2012. In these final days of the year I will definitely be scrambling to pick 6. SO many corkscrews and so little time… Let the fun begin!
