  • About All Wool And A Yard Wide
This store is owned and operated by Jon & Chris Frieseke, E-Bay sellers since 1999.

Our feedback rating is 100 % positive.

The antique and vintage items sold are mostly family items; they come from our family home which had over 60 years of accumulation all kinds of things.

The origin of the name of this store, ALL WOOL & A YARD WIDE, is from an old American expression. In the 1800s unscrupulous operators of woolen mills would include other fibers in the fabric and produce cloth less than a full 36 inches wide. Honest mill owner Capt. J. O. Ballard in New York used the slogan ALL WOOL & A YARD WIDE to describe the quality of his products. Over time the expression evolved into an idiom that was used to describe an honest, genuine and sincere person or firm, a firm that gives good value for the money. We both hope that our customers will feel that ALL WOOL & A YARD WIDE has lived up to its namesake.

Our store is still under construction at this time. We still have many items to upload.

We have many cards of antique buttons, many clocks and a number of antique dolls. If you have special interests, please write. If we hear from you, we can look for the item you want and put it to the head of the upload list.
