Holiday Finds

I have been looking for awhile for carders to go with my beautiful spinning wheel, so I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw some at the open pavilion behind the shops at Renningers Mount Dora.  A antique pair at a snip for $18, I was delighted with them.  I do wonder who has used them before and what wonderful yarn they have produced.  If only wood could talk.......

A little tatty I know, but I prefer to think of them as well loved.  Next up is a vintage wool winder from a couple of stalls down, another item off my wish list and a bargain at $5 still in its box.

I haven't tried it out yet, it's on my to do list.  Finally a bag of treasure from Behind Closet Doors which is a shop just before entering Renningers.  A vintage bag which will make a wonderful display in a embroidery hoop when I have completed it.

I did mange to find quite the haul of vintage patterns and buttons but I will save them for another post.  
Have a great week.                                                                                                               



  1. What great finds, that wool winder was a real bargain, I would like one, but cannot justify the prices that I have seen them at! Love the yellowy buttons in the 6th pic down, they are lovely aren't they. Great finds!! xx

  2. I sent a wool winder like that to a charity shop recently (not the same one I'm sure!) as I never used it and it had been given to me.You got some lovely finds.

  3. Oh I love Reninngers! You were so close to me you should have stopped for a visit! I am glad you got some wonderful finds.
