the previous post is an antique spinning bobbin-here is a link
Now, unfortunately, I can order one, with almost any color yarn I want for the $2.50 each. Of course I paid more at the thrift shop-it was in a locked case for goodness sakes! Of course, add the shipping and it's more then I paid (whew!)
Of course, I can get 110 of them, without thread for only $0.95 off of eBay ($11.50 shipping) Look here
Suddenly, it's not so exciting anymore.
