**Broom care instructions: Hang your broom or stand upright on the handle, never the bristles. Keep in a dry location. Broomcorn is a natural fiber, so if left in damp or wet conditions, it might become moldy. Dyed broomcorn can fade & bleed if gotten wet. When using your broom, frequently spin the handle so the bristles do not become worn down in a single direction. If you follow these directions you will have a broom that lasts many, many years!

About

Making Brooms for over 100 years-specializing in house brooms and fantasy brooms

Meckley Brooms is a family business/hobby dating back over 100 years. Randy Meckley, the current patriarch of the business or 4th generation, decided to learn the craft in his retirement years. He remembers growing up watching his grandfather make brooms, but was too young to learn. Determined to learn, he sought out some local Amish to see if they could show him how to use the inherited 100 year old equipment. To his surprise, the Amish had more modern methods of making brooms, but the knowledge they gave him was enough to learn the craft and replicated the same brooms his family made in the late 1800's and on the exact same broom machine.

Two years after retirement, Randy has expanded his retirement hobby from work brooms to play and display brooms, with the help of his son and grandson. As society evolves, so are brooms! While we still make functioning house brooms, the trend is now decor and fantasy witch and wizard brooms. We attend craftshows, take custom orders, and enjoy brightening a customers day when the broom finds them! Sports teams can also be seen riding Meckley Brooms.

We have developed our own fractal art besom. We call it the "Lightning Besom". Each broom handle goes through an electrifying process and the results are shocking. There are no two Lightning Besom that are the same. Lightning is like a finger print, each strike is different, and that is what we produce!

In addition to the broom craftsmen of the family, we also have the Ladies of the family who are in charge of creativity, promoting, quality control, sales, oh and keeping the boys under control!

All of our products are handcrafted by one of the 3 Meckley men, Grandpa, Father, or Grandson and sometimes all 3 are involved in the process of making a single broom. Our products are made for work so you can be assured that your are buying a well made broom, no matter how you choose to use it or display it.

Disclaimer: Our brooms do not fly!
