I have a nice set of tobacco racks(the ones good for wall hanging and dried flower arranging), that are marked and made in sparta tn.
Some from farmer burleys co-op, others from the tobacco warehouse in sparta.I'm selling and wanted to give locals a chance to buy before it goes somewhere else.

My wife is a antique, looking to give her away if anyone wants a nagging old bag.

I have 2 or 3 I'd get rid of, all of mine are sturdy and in excellent shape, good markings, readable, hand made and beautiful.People make wall hangers out of them these days, but they used to carry up to 600lbs of drying tobacco apiece!Sparta was a big thing back in the old days and that's why so many collectors want your tobacco racks, seems mostly like Nashville lawyers like them in their offices.

Make an offer on a set of two and let me know where you are on price, I'm not looking to gouge anybody, but I am looking for a fair market price.
