Artist Dorothy Spencer will bring whimsical charm to your home with this chair handmade with new and recycled yardsticks. Originally colored yardsticks were used as advertising giveaways for places like hardware stores, seed companies and dairy barns. And now, you can bring that same small-town spirit to your home. Handmade in Virginia.
UNCOMMON KNOWLEDGE: The word "yard" is derived from the Old English word "gird," which translates literally as "stick." So actually, we are rather redundantly calling the measuring device a "stick-stick."
