The Curios and Collectibles Couple.

Curios couple

Many years ago, both Trevor Morley and his partner Kim Skinner were bitten by the collecting bug. Trevor,a former policeman, proudly displays his 18th and 19th century police truncheons, while Kim sets out assorted kitchen curios along the counter of her antiques and collectibles shop in the Wellington suburb of Kilbirnie.

Trevor demonstrates his collection of mechanical musical machines at service clubs and bills himself as 'The Traveling Mechanical Music Man'. Kim still uses many of her kitchen curios such as a hollow glass rolling pin. 'Fill it with ice and it keeps your pastry cold' Kim explains.

Spectrum's Jack Perkins explores the curious world of curios and collectibles.
