Help?

Does anyone know where I can purchase this tall bee skep?   I've seen them recently on a few blogs and Gable House Goods header. 
 
Searched online and haven't come up with anything.  Help!!
 
 
Not only have I been purchasing charts I will never stitch, I have been buying more wool for projects I've been planning for a year!  My interest in stitching is still waning and I may start the wool soon.
 

 But not before I finish Sally Fiske!  Must complete her before my mojo takes a break.
 
Have a good one!!

Hi Marly,

Did you call the Isabella Sparrow store to see if she still has them? For some reason it looks like one of her new items, not vintage so she may be able to order one for you if they're out of stock. Her number is 717.327.7285. If you;re not set on that exact one there are other models I've seen that are a little bit more rustic that look good. check this one out - http://www.secondshoutout.com/product/tall-french-bee-skep

I'll keep my eye out for the Isabella Sparrow model anywhere else and if I see it I'll let you know.

You are hilarious, Marly!! I love cross stitching, but it is getting more and more of a strain on my eyeballs...even with the magnifiers on...wool is wonderful and luscious to work with...a bit more pricey...but oh so nice!!

There is a tall one at Step Back in Time in Washington Illinois. It's an antique shop and I also have a wool booth there called Wool Maid. They don't ship and not sure where you are. Road trip? They do hold items for a short while. ;-)

Sounds like you have some good leads on the bee skep. Good luck.
Luscious wools. Weird, I know, but sometimes I like to just fondle and smell my wool, especially if it has been rinsed in Downy.
Hugs :)

I am so glad you got help as I don't have any idea where to purchase one like that. It is very cool though. Your wool looks beautiful. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

Primitive Blessings has something very similar - 23"tall - top slightly different. Extremely reasonably priced @ 36.95 + 5.95 shipping

I ordered a Bee Skep from The Fern Place on etsy. Nan from Threadwork Primitives posted a picture of the one she ordered and I fell in love with it. I received mine a few weeks ago and it is gorgeous. Hope this helps.

Love the colors of your wools and looking forward to see what you do with it.

I love Bee Skeps too so I just did a search on eBay and found several. Not as nice as the one in your picture but there are tall ones. Maybe this link will work!!
