This summer we visited many citywide garage sales. At one of these towns we came across a sale hosted by an older man. Many of his items were unmarked and this was one of them. Luckily Angela asked the price and when he replied 25 cents we grabbed it up. It is a well-used doily stretcher from the 1950s, manufactured by the Pinabord Manufacturing Company of Chicago. It has its original orange wood frame surrounding the particleboard with a wonderfully bright bull’s eye graphic on it. I love all the holes from all the years of use. I have watched my grandma make doilies, but she never needed a doily stretcher. I didn’t even know they existed until we discovered one at a garage sale. It was such a fun surprise to find.
