Lately I've had a hankering for a small collection of antique gaming wheels. We have a large wall that is just screaming for some of these. Too bad I can't seem to find any for sale!
The nation's longest yard sale http://www.127sale.com/ is this weekend and I'm going to drive straight past it. I wish it could be another weekend, I'd like to drive a few miles just to see if I could spot one of these.

Shopping around online, I thought I'd hit the motherload on http://www.capitolsalvage.com/ but when I looked further, everything was sold! Who is out there buying all those gaming wheels? Anthropology?
This one is listed as sold on http://www.johnbrownsantiques.com/ I love the worn details.
This horse racing wheel is so different, but was sadly already sold on Three Potato Four. http://www.threepotatofourshop.com/
The zodiac wheel and the French wheel from http://www.amusement-supply.com/, are nice but they aren't antiques. I think I want to hold out for the real thing.
