Don Olney will present the program “A Top Collector Gives His Spin” on Thursday, September 27 at 7:00 p.m. at the Geneva History Museum, 543 S. Main Street. This presentation is literally about tops and will be given by the owner of one of the world’s largest collections of spinning tops. The program is sponsored by the Antiques Club of the Finger Lakes and is free and open to the public.

Olney will share his knowledge and many samples of tops from different cultures, tops that make music, tops with magnets, springs or gyroscopes.  Besides learning top history, you will learn something about the science behind tops. Don Olney has made and sold wooden toys for 35 years and is retired owner of Toycrafter stores in Ithaca and Rochester.
