Jim Lefever began collecting paperweights in the early ’80’s when he purchased a contemporary Baccarat mushroom for $40 at a local sale. His paperweight interest has now gravitated towards pansy paperweights. Approximately 300 of his paperweights are some form of a pansy.
Jim enjoys gardening and fixing up mechanical things in his spare time. Jim has worked for the same True Value hardware store for 47 years, where he now works as the sales manager in the appliance and lawn and garden department.
