IMPORTANT NOTICE


******** WE ARE ON THE MOVE !! ********

After years of gathering treasures with the conviction that we would never move

A challenge with lots of packing then unpacking and arranging once at our new headquarters,

the move will necessarily hinder our ability to ship during the interim.

WE WILL REMAN UP, RUNNING & RESPONSIVE DURING THIS PERIOD

with the same level of communication and attention our regulars are accustom to.

WE APPRECIATE YOUR PATRONAGE

and will be in full operation from our new Yelm, Washington home base shortly.


In the meantime please continue to visit, brows our myriad of treasures and

LET US KNOW IF YOU FIND A KEEPER!

We will make every effort to accommodate!

A wonderful remnant of the heyday of sale, one has to be impressed with just how this mid 1800s sailmakerís artifact survives intact with a full complement of craft essential components such as binding and stitching lace of varying material and gauge , hemp and cotton cord, a small paper bound skein of raw cotton yarn, and an interesting mix of odd job remnants such as leather drum tugs, period recovered grommets for re-use, bees wax for treating lacing and thread, even a leather cap visor ready for application. Tools of the craft of sail making and repair, include a small measuring scale, a lignum vitae seam rubber, a heavy hand stitched roping palm, two stitching palms, a heavy 6 inch needle and a splicing and seam knife maker marked IBBOTSON GLOBE WORKS. (closed in 1845) All best described by our photo illustrations it is important to note that the bag and content are period original one to another and as found after decades of Maine sea coast, attic storage. A remarkable remnant of the mid-19th century artificer.
