Hoop Brushes

It pains me to put these handmade Hoop Brushes by Fredericks & Mae into the cleaning category, but I think it would be too pretentious to classify them as strictly art. Now, if I owned one or two or three of these, I would be tempted to clean with them (maybe occasionally for spots with dust) and display them as art somehow, but you're the master of your own domain. What ...Read more
