FBA - fiber bobbin assortment (six piece

Home to the largest U.S. Collection of Wooden Bobbins

Our selection includes the largest U.S. collection of wooden bobbins and other mill relics that once served in the production of silk, woolen, and cotton goods. We recycle these pieces of history into decorative candle holders and curios…lamps, kaleidoscopes, jump ropes, and other functional and fun pieces.


Proud to showcase Art by

Maurice "Jake" Day

Milling Around is proud to be the retail gallery for the striking and heartwarming artwork created by renowned local artist Maurice “Jake” Day who “crossed mountain ridges and hiked into coastal villages, across solitary islands and secluded meadows gathering inspiration for his captivating land and seascapes and his unique, imaginative art where animals are humorously personified in a variety of human endeavors.”
