I continue to get wooden dowels of various sizes when I go pick up used vinyl banners. I think I'll start making something like this to use up the dowels, or else my family is going to want to report me to that hoarders show!
The only thing I do collect these days is banners and dowels. I got rid of all my fabric, knitting machine and wool. I used to do reconstructed clothing, but only one shirt ever sold on Etsy, so I let the listings expire and wore the shirts myself!
