Today I went to a very large antiques shop in Williamsburg, Virginia. I wasn't looking for anything to buy but I do like to look. This is what I found. Isn't it a sorry looking loom? The wood needed to be refinished and all the metal parts were rusty. The label said it was a Wonder Loom.
They wanted $175.00 for it. I was shocked! I found one of the employees and politely told her the owner may want to know that their loom was very over priced. I told her it would take a lot of work and money to restore it to working condition. She didn't blink an eye and said there were people who would gladly buy it just to have it as a display piece. I told her that was sad. It is a tool that should be used. I think that poor loom will be sitting there for a very long time.
