Invented in 1810, the broom maker's treadle machine revolutionized everything. Called a "kicker winder", it is a fancy way to wrap broom corn around a stick. They were built to last. Our beloved kicker was found in a barn out in Missouri. We are happy that it found it's way out west, into our broom shop. I took it apart. Lubricated and adjusted, it still works like a charm!  We look forward to making many new brooms on this old, old machine!
Our handmade brooms and pure beeswax candles are available year-round in our broom shop.  Be sure to like us on Facebook!  You can also find us on Etsy!
