It is that time of year again, and on Saturday I will take the boat from the island, hop in the mini, and head to the Union Antique Show. Every time I have been to the show, I have picked up at least a couple of corkscrews; last year was a signed Chinnock patent with Frame for 20 bucks.
If anything turns up on Saturday, I will post news of any finds on Sunday. Until then, here is the latest addition. Not a corkscrew, but a nicely carved boat sign, which seemed an appropriate name for our house on Vinalhaven, especially given the amount of wine that is consumed on the deck overlooking the harbor.
