Dear visitor,

Here is the result of many hours work on my new website and I hope you enjoy your visit and will come back again to see more.

Please contact me for information, and certainly when you are a collector of bowling pins, or in case you have bowling pins to sell or trade.

From this page you can go to my new arrivals, pins due soon, for sale or wanted, other items and a special page for Sir Bowmore! You can go to the contact page or go see truly fantastic pin collections all over in the world!

And enjoy my special tribute collection of Number 14 Pool Balls! 389 in my collection now and 13 due soon.

In February 2022 I decided to SELL about 98% my collection of bowling pins! 690 pins will be shipped to the new owner in the USA soon. For the time being I will keep this website online.
