  • Betty Barry has two Ashford Traditional wheels for sale. One is a 1983 wheel that was still in the box. This was a 30 year old unfinished project. It had been stained a gentle cherry color, but had never been assembled. She looks just lovely and works great. So, this is really a three decades old “new” wheel. There are four bobbins and a lazy kate included.This wheel is $400.The other is a one-owner late l970’s model Ashford Traditional. It was purchased from the estate of the daughter of its previous owner. It is very good condition. Just needed to be cleaned up, waxed and tweaked a bit. (new scotch tension band and spring and new leather conrod joint connector). It is a dark wheel. There is one bobbin with the wheel. This wheel is $300. For further information or pictures, please contact Betty Barry at 260 580-1811 or betty@littleshopofspinning.com.  (Listed September 2013)
