Canes of Antiquity

During a most welcome and lovely visit to my home town, MrA and I stumbled upon a quaint little antique store, where, quite unexpectedly, we were able to acquire some particularly intriguing items.

These treasures of antiquity were my ever-incorrigible partner's discovery. At the time, we were shopping with family members, so a certain (aka HIGH) level of discretion was required. I was innocently gazing at some lovely brass figurines near the front of the store when he came up and whispered in my ear, "Go to the back, turn left, walk down to the end of the hall, and see what you find hanging from the B--- sign."

Immediately I knew it couldn't be anything good.

Hanging? My first dreaded guess as I picked my way through the shop was some sort of evil strap... Maybe even a tawse... Some form of heavy old cracked well-worn perfectly authentic leather just resting serenely upon the wall of this ancient place.

Alas, perhaps another shop, another day :D

When I arrived at the end of MrA's cryptic verbal treasure map, what I found instead was even worse: four long, slim, whippy, crook-handled canes, hooked over the side of an old sign. They had been deliberately plucked from a basket of all sorts of other long, whippy-looking evil things -- the only four crook-handled canes in the whole bundle.


I handled them carefully, discovering that, while appearing spindly and quite thin, they retained quite an astonishing amount of strength and suppleness.

Needless to say, before we left town, MrA and I took the opportunity to make one pit-stop and purchase four new additions to our growing collection of implements. After a good hardy bath in rubbing alcohol, each one will undergo a thorough treatment regimen with mineral oil, to re-hydrate what is obviously some very old wood (or rattan? we are not quite sure what they are made of...), and smooth out any rough edges.

Playing with them will require some careful measures, but really, I think MrA liked them more for show. They have a very appealing visual aesthetic :D I am sure they will get more looks than uses... :D:D But in any case, I will be sure to keep you informed as to their progress in our hands!

  1. In my opinion, the most beautiful spanking implement in the world, is the cane. Yes, that pliable swishy cane. It us taught many a naughty woman, and taught her painfully on her naked bottom, that her erring ways must come to and end. Yes, 'six of the best', six of the very best strokes, upon my lady's naked rear end, is just pure perfection.

  2. Rayne,

    What a great find. I can just imagine the smirk on Mr A's face as he whispered the treasure map in your ear. And, the look of dread on yours when you realized that you had found yet another implement. :D He so does love his canes.

    "I am sure they will get more looks than uses." Hmmmm. Good luck with that dear Rayne.

    Great story. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    My best to you and Mr A,
    joey

  3. They should absolutely be left just for show. That is what antiques are meant for, to hang on the wall!

  4. I scour antique stores (and have a houseful to prove it) in the hopes of finding gems like these. So far I only found a hairbrush, and after 60 years of careful use, was promptly broken on me. Shame!

    Have fun with these!

    :)

  6. You are very lucky to find one old cane, but four is a veritable treasure trove! Enjoy...

  7. Those canes may be thin, but let's face it, even the slightest tap across the bare behind with one of those little devils would take the average person's breath away. Lovely find, lovely indeed...

  9. I just discovered your blog and thought it would be rude if I just read and never comment. So here I am commenting. :)

    I love your blog. Your writing style is great, I love anything HP, and your topics are very interesting, at least to me. :D

    1. Thank you so much Julia! It is always a thrill to receive positive feedback -- so glad you felt inspired to comment! I hope my lack of posting hasn't driven you away -- time has been getting away from me lately, but I hope to be posting again soon! Stay in touch! :D

    2. No, your lack of posting has not driven me away. Actually that was one of the reasons that I just set up my own blog profile so I can track everyone more easily....:D

  10. Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks.sbobet

    1. Hi sbo! Thank you for your comment! Honestly, I don't know how to get on Yahoo News! In fact, I didn't know that I was there -- thank you for bringing it to my attention! As I did nothing to consciously be listed there, I wonder if it just takes a matter of time for them to pick you up. Always a good way to get noticed anywhere online is to drive traffic to your site, as I am sure you are already doing! :D Good luck!

  11. It must have been such a thrill to find that kind of thing in the store. Of course to anyone else its just a cane, but certainly not to those of us who know what it can be used for lol.
