This was offered today on our workplace "flea market" for $50. Ashford spinning wheel. With accessories. Never used.
Like I need another hobby. But how could I pass it up? And it wasn't me who saw the ad, it was my husband. He remembered the brand of wheel from the lamb and wool festival we went to. He IM'd me about it.
[14:15] DH: (sends URL to look at ad)
[14:17] me: wow - super price!
[14:17] DH: that's what I thought
[14:17] DH: if you're interested in one...
[14:17] me: hmmmm
[14:17] me: would be kinda cool
[14:18] me: not sure where I'd put it
[14:18] DH: just thought I'd let you know. There's lots of other stuff on the Flea Market today
[14:21] me: I think I want it...
Took me all of 4 minutes to think about it!
I called and it was still available. I left a message with his wife. Perhaps I'll be trying my hand at spinning tomorrow night.
Nov 29 update: After a voicemail message that apparently went nowhere (or to someone else's phone) and an email to the wife, she called me back. She'll bring the wheel tomorrow. I can't believe she's selling this wheel so cheaply. I almost feel like I should offer more money. Almost. She was pleased that I'm excited about it and plan to use it. I am excited about it. What an early Christmas present!!
