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.

so I brought this one home.)
