This is my shell game collection as it currently stands.

If you have any shells you'd like to part with, let me know.

Very nice. I just have a set of the Street Shells and want to get a set of the Colorado Silver Shells.

I have a set of the Karl Norman Brass. I bought them from I'm many years ago after seeing him at a lecture in Pittsburgh, I haven't done much with them, although I recently started to play with them, and they handle very nicely. I also have the original routine that came with them.
I'm reluctant to get rid of them because I know that I'll regret it one day.

No you won't. They are weighing you down. Everything that is wrong with your life is the fault of those shells. Give them to me.

You can see the set I already have sitting just next to the Giant turtle.

Nick: The thimbles that you have appear to be much larger than my set. Mine compare in size with the Shellbarks. Mouth is about the same size, but overall, smaller, because the walls are much thinner. Right now, my favorite toys are the shellbarks.

Shellbarks?
Also known, when doing rope magic, as "Cordini"

Oops .......... Shagbarks. Awhile ago I made a mistake and called them shellbarks. Now I can't get it into my head, shag or shell.

I received my set of shags about a week ago- man are they pretty! I promised myself not to use them until I have completed Shell Boot Camp. About 10 days to go...

The Normam ones I have are more like small bowls as described by him in the original instructions. But Karl Norman made a lot of different size and shaped shells.

Do you collect routines as well?

Be nice if you could post close-up pictures of the special items, like the timble-rigs.

It is good to see my "Deacon Dan Shells" at the top of your list, but what are you waiting for? Give me a call, 918-691-4122!

Nothing like blatant self promotion Smile

Our friends don't have to agree with me about everything and some that I hold very dear don't have to agree about anything, except where we are going to meet them for dinner.

Mr. Johnson,

Darn it, envy is one of the 7 Deadly sins. Does this mean I'm going to hell?

You need a nice cabinet to store that all in.

Thank you very much for the photo and the inspiration.

Respectfully,

Phil
