It has been a couple years since we last visited the Granville Island Broom Company. I always find it fascinating to visit a tool maker who uses traditional techniques and natural materials to fabricate a great tool and a piece of art at the same time.
Their brooms are one of a kind. I got permission to take a few pictures at the back where they store their newly made brooms and their materials.
Each broom is different and you really have to try a few to be able to pick the right one for your liking. I never knew buying a broom is so much fun!
I did pick one up for myself. I was intended to keep and use it in the garage but I have not used it because it is getting rainy and I don’t want to make it wet. It is still hanging in its original packaging waiting for me to put it to work.
