Doesn't it seem like you're always hearing stores about how people found amazing wheels in flea markets and antique stores? Or is it just me? Well let me tell you, I've searched for years in stores, online at craigslist and the like without a single "super" find. I ended up giving up the hunt and buying a wheel brand new. I'm glad I did, but I still like to look around and put my name in shops just in case. You'd think with the age of the area in which we live that I would stumble across a wheel every now and again, but this time was the first!
Pictures from an antique store in the country. They're all from my camera phone and bad quality because it was super cramped. One of the best finds there? A HUGE great wheel! I don't know a single thing about them, but this one is super old, in the condition you'd expect from something with great age.
I didn't buy anything, but just being there was a cool adventure. It was so packed you had to follow an open path around the house from room to room. There were even things in what used to be the bathroom!
I have to admit I almost walked right past the Great Wheel, I was scoping out the cool old baby pram, then realised there was a wheel in front of me.
There were cool little things all over! You walked around the rooms of the house and it was just jam packed with items which ranged from old, to tacky or quirky and cool. I really loved this doll head but my husband hought it was creepy. It even had the hand painted on lips and hair. Too cool.
Have you ever found anything fibery related at a flea market or antique store?
