Windmills have been used since the Middle Ages, and Holland in particular is famous for its many traditional Windmills.
The Windmills and Wind Spinners at Purple Puffin are not for milling grain though - they're for decorative purposes, and are great as summer party gifts! We have Wind Spinners, Wind Socks, Flags and Kites. Wind Spinners were originally used to warn farmers of upcoming storms. You too can test your meteorology skills using these wind-powered gifts, or you can just sit in the garden and enjoy the colours!
