WAY COOL: The Place Tabor Lives

I've got a buddy in Portland, named Tabor Porter.  He is a jewelry artist who does spectacular work.  His other claim to fame is his home; he is, shall we say, a collector of things...especially unusually things.  The best part of visiting Tabor (other than being served ice cream and pie with morning coffee) is that his home is a veritable smorgasbord of oddities.  No matter where you look...you are bombarded with visually weird treats.  In fact a 250 lb concrete Mayan head greeted me at the door.  Once inside...visual overload...not a vacant spot on the wall.  

Here's Tabor now! That's not his real face...he's wearing a Bolivian mask made from tin.

 An eye opener. A ceramic booze flask that was kept beneath one's pillow.

Here's Goliath's severed head from a David and Goliath play.  Who doesn't need one of those?

Vintage Halloween goodies anyone?
