I have been collecting old washers for 10 years. It’s a weird collection to keep, but I love the round, industrial rusty nature of the ones I find along the streets, railways and alleys in the city. They started to work their way into my work a couple of years ago and appear on Binding Bee books from time-to-time. My grandpa recently passed away and while my family was going through his workshop to get it ready for auction my aunt sent me two huge boxes of grandpa’s rusty old washers. Here are two of the books that boast these Minnesota treasures.
