I forgot!

What with all the upset yesterday, I forgot that on Saturday we hit the local Antique mall. We were actually in that area to look at the unfinished furniture store - I need some new (taller) barstools, and don't really want to pay the Amish store for them (can't afford it AND the dining set), so - there we were. (The unfinished store? $148 EACH. The Amish Outlet? $166 for FINISHED stools that MATCH the dining set. Gee....wonder what I'll be doing?? Later, of course! :grin:)

Anyway...I found 7 spinning wheels. 1 a lovely decoration (no WAY would that thing ever be made to actually *spin*) - it was a Saxony style with distaff, 4 antiques (none of which thrilled me - 1 was decorative, I think (Norwegian castle-type with all the stuffs...but, the treadle did NOT make the wheel go 'round, and there was no way to fix it), a poor, abused Ashford Traddy (busted hub, wheel out of line and loose) and....a Great Wheel. It was warped, but usable (maybe)..but it needed a real spindle (the one it has is wood, and looks fake). :sigh:

I do NOT need another wheel - I have plenty. I'm just a bit upset that a newbie might see these and go nuts over 'em....ah, well - not my problem. :grin:

Gotta skitter!
