The Collector

The Santa Barbara Surfing Museum

Gidget’s Surfboard, Gary Cooper’s pith helmet from The Lives of a Bengal Lancer, Paladin’s pistol from Have Gun, Will Travel – the list goes on. Antique collector, surfer, photographer, curator Jim Mahoney’s collection of vintage props and unique treasures has landed in Japanese fashion magazines, New York City boutiques, and commercials galore. He also has a collection of local artifacts that includes the program from James Dean’s last car race (which was here in Santa Barbara). The William Brown Project stumbled upon Mahoney’s weird, wonderful, and occasionally spooky world on a recent trip to Santa Barbara.
