Wired magazine reports:

"Auction hounds are snapping up "vampire killing kits" and "vampire hunting kits" manufactured by a nineteenth century quack named Ernst Blomberg. The kits, which have been found in Australia and sold by at least two auction houses (including Southebys, reportedly for $12,000), include silver bullets, a wooden stake, holy water, and other important vampire-destroying items."

For those of us ( myself included ) who do not have twelve thousand dollars to squander, at least the photo allows us to reconstruct a cost effective prop for a routine. A clever bizarrist could make and sell them himself.

A Vampire kit has been on my list of props to make for years. Maybe someday I'll actually put one together. The Spellbound Museum in Salem, MA has a supposedly genuine Vampire Kit on display.

Hey!
This is *exactly* what one's need to perform "The Hunter" out of The Curator's book, "Hauntiques"...

On second thought, the items are scaringly close to what the Curator uses in his routine... save for the umbrella... an essential item to carry with you when travelling around East European countries looking for vampires...

Interesting link: many thanks, airship!
