A BRAND NEW BROOM!
No 1885 farm kitchen would be complete without the utilitarian splendor of this broom, made of the finest broom corn and other materials available this side of the Mississippi. Sturdy yet sleek, this broom could sweep up a mess of crumbs and dirt from the children in no time and then be tucked discretely behind the kitchen door.
This broom can be yours (not really, it is only imaginary), if The Price Is Right!
How much do you think a broom cost at McDermott’s General Store in 1885?
