I picked up a bag of old wooden thread spools at a flea market last week. There were 9 of them, 4 of one design and 5 of another. The 4 shorter, fatter spools have graphics from a textile factory in Shelby NC on the tops and bottoms of them.
I had a few ideas of what I thought I would use the spools for.
My first thought was to use them as hooks on a coat/hat rack, but then the cooler weather changed my direction.
