    Default Porcupine quills

    I would like to trade for a handful of porcupine quills for various projects. We'll work out the details of the trade if anyone has them. Thanks in advance!

    Send an E-mail to Lally House. She uses quills by the bushel and can tell you where to get what you need. She is one of the top quill artests in the world but is a down to earth person.

    She is the wife of Frank House, the gunmaker that armed Mell Gibson for The patriot. She made Gibson's quilled shooting bag and several other accessories for the film.

    Just as a sidelight, Frank House was producing flintlock rifles at $20,000 a pop and had a waiting list 5 years long and still would not give up his "day job" as a pipe fitter.

    I think he got over that after The Patriot

    That's how down to earth these folks are!

    Any road in Nova Scotia. They had more dead porcupines in the road than the Midwest has potholes after a wet winter.

    there's porcupines around here, a few weeks back I had some for supper. If I come across a road kill I'll get you some quills, of course now that I'm looking they'll be rare.
    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    I've got quills. All I have to do is clean the hair up and boil them. There yours, all I need is an address.
