Featured Collectible – Vintage Macrame – 70’s Craft Series #2

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!
