LATEST FEEDBACK: ‘I can’t tell you how delighted I am with my new spinning wheel! It travelled well yesterday and arrived safely,now having pride of place in a corner of the living room. Thank you so much for all your advice and offers of help in the future, which I’m sure I shall be taking you up on in due course.’ CS
All the pre-owned spinning wheels I sell are fully overhauled and in great working condition. Some are almost brand new and all are by well known makers such as Ashford, Louet and Haldane.
Please be aware that, as used items, they may have minor marks from their previous home, but this in no way impairs their use.
I want every purchaser to be completely happy with their wheel. You are welcome to visit and try wheels without obligation, and all used wheels are sold on the basis of strictly collection only.
