Lots of people have some item which they proudly collect, rather as a hobby or, for the more serious, a way of life. Don Olney must be extremely proud of his collection which is 7,000 strong. What does he collect? Spinning tops. Being a toymaker, it makes sense Olney has such a big collection. His tops come from different cultures, and include ones which make music, spin upside down, have gyroscopes in them and draw pictures, among other things. Let the toymaker of about 35 years enlighten you on all things spinning tops.
"Spinning Tops" will take place on Thursday, January 15, at the Morgan-Manning House in Brockport, 151 Main Street. 7:30 p.m. Free admission. Call 637-3645 for more information.
