Junk Store Treasures - Antique Spinning Wheels

Junk Store Treasures
A favourite past-time of mine when I travel is to visit second-hand shops. Hidden away in a dusty
corner, I sometimes find antique spinning wheels, looms and other textile
treasures. I can’t take them all home with me, so the next best thing is
to take photos. Here are a few.

If you have some photos
to add to this collection, please let me know. You may send in your pics by using our Contact Form.

Saxony Style Spinning Wheels

Quebec Wheel

Double-Band

I found this lovely wheel at Neat Stuf

in Thrums, BC
(I couldn’t resist – it spins beautifully,

so I brought this one home.)
