Check out these old lobster trap buoys.
From New England, hand carved.
Each one with its identification carved into it.
Used by lobstermen for marking the location of their traps.
And if lobstering is a topic that interests you (and why wouldn't it?) I recommend Linda Greenlaw's The Lobster Chronicles. Greenlaw is the only woman swordfishing boat captain on the east coast of the U.S. If you read or saw A Perfect Storm she was the captain of the Hannah Boden.
So I took these babies to the Catskills, but decided that since most of my customers there divide their time between NY City and the mountains they (the buoys not the customers) will draw more interest in the Etsy shop. I'll probably price them for less than this. Sheesh. Of course, whatever price I set, someone will say sheesh to me. That's the way this business is--the Wild West, remember?
