Collectors' Corner
Disposable Lighters and Painted Milk Bottles

FREE - just turn up!

Penny Hobson reveals a myriad of disposable lighters for this Collectors' Corner. The multitude of shapes and colours they come in, and our obesssion with the minature is an obvious draw for these common but surprisingly well-designed, functional nik-naks.

Remember when glass milk bottles were delivered to your front door?  Remember how many of them had printed ads or other pictures on them?  Jim Kedge makes and ownes over 90 of them to share with you.

Future Collectors' Corner Events

Do you have an unusual collection? This summer at the De La Warr Pavilion we’d like to invite people to bring their weird and wonderful collections into the Gallery. Connecting to our summer exhibition by the artist Tomoko Takahashi, we’re having a Collectors’ Corner each Sunday at 2.30pm starting on 4 July, giving collectors the opportunity to share their interests with the public.

Whether its snow globes or kaleidoscopes, toy soldiers or thimbles, get in touch if you collect something you’d like to share.
