Brought to Light: Russell Wiggins, a collector

East Lawrence resident Russell Wiggins, 67, has a love affair with antiques. He restores old items, such as bells and bicycles, to full working condition and displays them in his yard.

This is a great article and video!

It could be part of a series of collectors from all over the state, and all the kinds of different things they have (including flower gardens in the summer). This would present another view of Kansans to the world, besides the apartment dwellers and TV watchers.

In fact, I would suspect that many younger people might take to different collections. They might be able to link up with farms when they don't have their own place.

By the way, in the Buddhist tradition, bells play an important role.

Thank you, Russell Wiggins, for such a video. This is part of what Lawrence is all about, and it isn't presented that often.
