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.

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.)
