Goodbye Old Friend: I Never Even Knew Your Name
I thought you might like to see something I'm posting on Craigslist tomorrow. I found this old spool rack (?) at an antique store about 10 years ago and have LOVED it.
The plan was for it to go above the cabinets in my still non-existent mudroom addition. I love its rugged, rough-hewn looks, and I like to imagine stories and life events unfolding as a strong woman used it over decades of her life. I figure her husband made it for her. His name, I believe, would have been Chet.
Now, however, it's time for it to find a new home. Is anyone familiar with these? It is over 5 1/2 feet high and is about 22 inches wide. Are there any weavers out there? I'd love to learn more about my buddy before she finds her new home.
