If you have followed me for a while you know that over the last couple of years I’ve developed a bit of a macrame obsession. So you can imagine the internal cartwheels I was doing when I found the holy grail of all vintage macrame scores a couple of weeks ago:
Yep, that’s a nearly 8′ tall hanging plant holder / side table and it is GORGEOUS. SO hard to part with – but it is up at auction on eBay right now!
Luckily, macrame was a really popular craft in the 70’s – that means there is still quite a bit of it floating around out there, waiting to be reclaimed. Not all of it is done well though, so it is especially fun to find pieces like the one I found, that were made by someone who had some skill, and took extra care to make their projects turn out nicely…
I actually have another hanging plant holder in my eBay store that has butterfly beads on it, with a matching ceramic planter – I’m kind of surprised it hasn’t sold yet!
Plant holders seem to be the most popular macrame craft, but they were not the only thing that people made – let’s take a look at what else is out there:
I could literally make this post go on for days and days… So I’ll make myself stop here. Long live the macrame love! ;)by
