Used Equipment Area
The Used Equipment Area (UE Area) will open at 10am on Saturday.
There will be no sales or previewing of items before we open!

wheel.jpg (20057 bytes) Are you looking for a used loom, spinning wheel, hand carders or resource books? Head for the Used Equipment Area! Sales in this area are only done by cash or personal checks. Sorry, no credit cards. Due to having multiple vendors in this area, please have small denomination bills to ease payment process.

Need to make some room in your workshop or barn? Troubled by what to do with the no longer needed shearing stand or clippers? Have one too many spinning wheels? Bring them to the Fiber Frolic Used Equipment Area!

Examples of items you might consider selling: feeders, scales panels, shears, carders, spinning wheels, swifts, looms, niddy-noddies, knitting needles, and pattern books. Any fiber animal related equipment you no longer use. All equipment must be clean and in working order. Please attach any operating instructions or accessories. Items for sale are left with volunteers running the UE Area. Any sale that occurs during the day will be executed for you and recorded.
