What will follow in Dime's footsteps?

The Baltimore Sun

When American Dime Museum owner-curator Dick Horne auctioned off his mass of oddities Monday, he raised $107,000 but kissed goodbye such wonders as a 9-foot Peruvian mummy ($3,000) and a monkey automaton ($2,100).

Now that fate has banged down its gavel on the Dime, we wondered: What is Baltimore's quirkiest collection now? Do you own 3,241 pairs of bowling shoes? Is your cousin's basement overrun with Elvis hairpieces? Does your friend have an entire room devoted to gourds that resemble politicians?

We'd love to know who's collecting what in the Baltimore area - as long as it's outlandish.

Send your nominations to arts@baltsun.com, with "collection" in the subject line.
