This post strangely will not be about typewriters. Like most collectors, I collect more than one thing. I collect and use smoking pipes. I picked up a rack today. I also have an antique pipe cleaner and lighter.
I like to smoke some pipe tobacco at the end of the day. The start of my day, on the other hand, begins with a shave. I use a vintage razor, which is not difficult. It is also less costly to shave this way.
I also enjoy a good hat–Irish caps, fedoras, porkpies, and the occasional stetson. Today I found an antique hat rack. Naturally, I placed it next to my front door.
Other than that, I’m a sucker for a unique chess set, some of which I’ll post someday. It is interesting to meet other collectors. Some collect porcelain. Others collect military artifacts. Collections differ, but the passion for history is shared by all.
