Celebrity endorsements and flashy TV commercials haven't always ruled advertising. Yardsticks used to be the way to get your business name known, and designer Dorothy Spencer's fabulously funky yardstick box recaptures the charm of the hardware stores and lumberyards that printed up rulers. Spencer searches for retro rulers and crafts these varnished keepsake boxes with roller skate wheels for feet and a water faucet handle. Handmade in Virginia. Each is one of a kind.
