A warm welcome to my page & many thanks for visiting my website.

My name's Peter Borrett, I live in the sticks o
f Reading, England.

My corkscrew collecting started back in 2002 when I decided to stop cluttering
the house with all sorts of different stuff & collect something specific. After
browsing through some antique books I thought I'd hunt for old corkscrews as
they looked so interesting in all their diverse forms. I quenched my new
interest with passion which still burns within today.
To help finance my collection I've sold plenty of corkscrews
on Ebay, my user name's loxwoodfc (the name of a football
club that I played for). I've also been selling through this
website since 2004 & at some point in the future will stall
out at Newark antique fair.

Other than the corkscrews I love football, playing badly until
the legs gave in, but I still keep myself fit as I play in my
squash leagues. I'm also a qualified FA referee. Sport
aside, I play bass guitar in a London based rock/pop
covers band called Sound Mined. Check out our
Lemonrock website to hear our recordings & find out where
we are playing live. If you make it to a gig, you absolutely
must come & say Hi. I can often be found late at night
working on solo music projects too.
I've tried to make Corkscrews Online as informative as possible. I
know when I started out collecting corkscrews I found it to be a
minefield, so I really hope this site can help you.

I've made some great friends while corkscrew collecting. Yes,
corkscrew collectors are a friendly bunch. Why not join me & a
number of others at a newly formed corkscrew club, the Cheap As
Chips Corkscrew Club. It's free to join, find out more here

As I mentioned earlier, I sell on Ebay as loxwoodfc. The link below will
take you to my auctions if I have any running. I normally start my
auctions low & hope for the best, so you might just grab a terrific
loxwoodfc on Ebay

Don't forget to look through my current items for sale on this web site.

space available for your stories, articles or anything else that you would like to add.
Since starting out in 2002 I've worked hard to assemble a fine collection of antique corkscrews. I've lost count
exactly how many pieces I have now, but I'd guess at something like 1500. I appreciate not only the more desirable
patented mechanical corkscrews that often demand very high prices but also enjoy simple corkscrews that feel
good in the hand & give you a flavour of history.
September 2009
Wanted an original
arcade Williams

I spent many hours
playing this game in the
80's & want to spend
many hours playing it
once again.

to have it collected by
courier if you're further
away. UK only machine
