Auction Places

The most exciting place to buy corkscrews - this is a special on-line auction site that was started in 2008 by a group of dedicated and serious collectors to create an orderly marketplace for quality corkscrews.  Two auctions per year offer buyers and sellers an orderly and profitable venue to buy and sell.  As this is an effort by corkscrew experts for corkscrew collectors, it should be a much better way to buy and sell corkscrews.  There are many special ideas and approaches that are implemented in this initiative.  If you are interested, just visit the auction website by clicking here.
