REDWOOD HOOK FOR BIDS...AND THE WINNER IS... (DRUM ROLL PLEASE)



When we were in Calleyfornia, I kept an eye out for hook wood, especially redwood. I've been wanting to make a redwood hook for a spell. So when i ran across a redwood furniture place near San Simian, i asked the guy if he had a dead branch pile. He did!
So i rummaged through the pile and found a few sticks that had hook potential, packed them in my suitcase (don't tell Karol, ok) and here you see the results.
This is about a Q and as you can see, is a truly beautiful piece of wood.
AND you can bid on it!!! Email me your bids at

And we have an opening bid of $10.00 from the lovely and talented Krista, folks.

Not to be outdone, the Vivacious Andrea bids $15.00.

And now we have a generous bid of $20.50 from the unbelievably talented Sherri.

Oh the bidding is getting exciting! Three more bids were waiting when i got home from work.

Andrea offered a bid of 24.75 and i so hoped it would help her with her plight at work... but then

Kindly Kelly shows up with a generous bid of $25.00... but wait, another?....

Poetic Paulette has captured the current high bid with an awe inspiring bid of $30.00!

Poor Paulette was just now outbid by Andrea who is sure a Jimbo Qish hook will seriously raise her morale at work. Andrea see's Paulette's $30 and raises to $35!

Holey Cow!! At the last minute Paulette, not to be outbid, and known for her compassionate generosity, sent the winning bid in for a new record purchase price for a Jimbo hook.

$51.50 !!!


WAH DANG HOOOO!!!Honestly... thank you guys for your bids. I'm really touched.

THANKS EVERYONE WHO BID AND PLEASE DON'T GO AWAY. I'LL HAVE ANOTHER HOOK UP FOR BIDS VERY VERY SOON!

I drive through a redwood forest almost monthly to go visit my parents. I can get you an unlimited supply of branches. :)

That'd be great Wendy. If you spot a piece that has hook written all over it, i'm game!
