Recently at auction was an authentic 1800’s vampire killing kit. No lie! It’s got stakes, bible, mirrors, holy water, crosses and garlic. Who can’t write a story with that?
Now I wonder who owned it before. A priest? Or was it lovingly created after the release of Dracula as goodies? Could it possibly have been a Halloween costume? Could someone have been parading around as Van Helsing? Or was it used to stake people after they’d died of consumption?
Someone also paid nearly $15k for that kit. What does someone do with that? Would you use it? Or maybe there’s a hidden compartment underneath that has something much more valuable. What could be hidden inside a vampire killing kit? Lots of questions, but no answers. But I’m sure some of you could write a story with just this little piece of Victoriana.
