when i splurged on my spinning chair last month, paying just about full spinning chair price, it never occurred to me that it was simply an early arrival cooling its heels while awaiting its perfect match, but…?
meet liz. she’s a very early ashford elizabeth, which was introduced in 1982 or so; this one was purchased in 1985 and sold, to me, on ebay just this week by her original owner, a lovely lady in boca. at first i feared i might have overpaid, but then she arrived. wow. and she came with four spinning books from the 70s-80s, a set of hand carders and, of course, her matching horizontal lazy kate and four bobbins. she is enthroned in the living room, across from ash who, like me, is a bit in awe.
and so! four. i seem to be leaning more toward vintage than antique these days.
