    About 10 years ago, I started collecting corkscrews; my interest spurred by an article I was assigned to write about an antiques dealer in the Georgetown area of Washington, DC. His shop was filled with antique corkscrews, and I was fascinated. My few hours spent with the owner had me hooked. And, a new collection was about to start. Armed with a $5 limit per corkscrew, I started my quest. The limitation on price meant diligent hunting, and frequent early early mornings at flea markets. You would be amazed at what five bucks can get you however. I still believe there are those hidden treasures out there, which keeps me looking. While my price limit has gone up (not by much), I still think the best, and most satisfying, way to build a collection is through the hunt. And, hunt I do (constantly)!
