Collector remembers journeys in Europe, Asia

Posted: January 12, 2018 at 1 a.m.

NWA Democrat-Gazette/BECCA MARTIN-BROWN A selection of Asian artifacts collected by Bob Kabanuck will be among collections on show Saturday at the Shiloh Museum of Ozark History. The opium pipe has perhaps the best story.

Bob Kabanuck doesn't really consider himself a collector -- certainly not in the sense of obsession. The teak wood carvings, temple rubbings, Japanese dishes and metal chopsticks from Korea are memories made tangible for the Springdale man, who will share them Saturday at the Shiloh Museum's 10th annual "Cabin Fever Reliever" collectors' day.
