the years, we have had requests for used snowshoes for decorations
that are in perfect condition. This is a difficult task at best, and
we have only been able to find a few pair per year that meet these
stringent requirements. We have finally convinced a snowshoe maker
in Canada to "antique" his new snowshoes for us.
Sandblasting new snowshoes did not work, but applying a gray stain
prior to lacing instead of using a varnish has resulted in the
perfect look. These snowshoes are designed for the decoration market
only as the protective coating of varnish has not been applied. Lean
them next to the fireplace or hang them on the wall of your cabin.
They do not come with harnesses/binding.
We also have access to about 700 pairs of used snowshoes (most have
harnesses and varnish).
