COLLECTOR SPOONSWhere did Collecting Spoons start? Well, some say spoons collecting started around the 1800s at popular tourist destinations in Europe. Americans might think it started with a young Massachusetts Jeweler around the 1890s. Commemorating, the Salem Witch Hunt Trials.

Bad Timing, but, it only kills old people.
