• My granny's pegs were often bought from gypsies . This one certainly was . Its a real dolly peg ! Little girls could use them as dolls for play .
  • The two springed pegs were got in the 1950s - shop bought.
  • Probably a shop bought peg but pre-1960 .

Clothes Pegs , Dolly Pegs and the Gypsy's Curse !

Newer Older

CLOTHES LINES ! Four wooden pegs from a good few years ago . Surely modern pegs don't last so long do they ? Times were when gypsies would go door to door selling clothes pegs . If a woman would not answer her door to a gypsy or refuse to buy a few ,she would expect to be cursed . It was just unfortunate should she not have enough money to buy . Quite how powerful or long-lasting a gypsy's curse would be I do not know !
P.S. Tesco value pegs are quite good but the checkout girls there are not obviously gypsies and would have different ways of cursing !

    Those are neat!
    I have odd little collections of things, too; hoze nozzles, glass percolator tops... Haven't photographed them yet, but someday.
