What Do You Collect? Dick Carlson

Last week, Jack Attridge came in the shop. I asked him if he knew anybody who was an eclectic, super collector here in Marblehead. Without hesitation, Jack screamed out "Dick Carlson! He collects everything!" Jack gave me Dick's number, we set up a time to meet, and I asked Dick to pick one of his collections to focus on. Dick is a super cool guy and showed me around his house and let me look at all, and when I say all, I mean ALL, of his different collections! From wooden decoys to his mind-blowing train collection to his Marblehead art collection to his pipe tobacco humidor collection...I could go on and on. Dick is a true super collector!
