New week and time for a Whatzit!


Found by a picker friend of mine, with me in mind. Of course I scooped it up faster than you can say toot-a-loops.
Ok, I'm open for guesses (see bottom of post for answer)


I think I know what it is, but not sure


Whatever it is, it will be in my Etsy store soon.
Thanks to my faithful readers, it turns out this is a vintage store broom display. I was a bit skeptical so I googled it and... show-nuff. Not sure how it worked as such, but there it is. My guess was a candle dipper.

I'm not sure but I'll keep checking back until someone does know.

Hangs in a diner kitchen with the orders hanging from it? I dunno, but I see a light fixture happening!

See you soon at Junk Bonanza!

I know what it is.....amazing! Ha! Okay, my real guess is primitive receipt holder from a store or restaurant. I really have no idea, but when I first saw it I thought it would make a perfect photo holder.

I am thinking something from a diner or cafe to hang orders on? Lots of fun possibilities!

It is a broom display from an old general store!!! Had one myself a few years ago, always regretted selling it.

I think it's a hanging lamp that's lost it's fabric covering. It would look great with some paper mache' and turned into a birdcage!

it is a hanging general store display for brooms.

Corrina & Joan are correct. An antique dealer/expert friend of mine had one that I always envied and she re-purposed it to hang pots & pans from above her stove!

hmmm... I'm guessing it holds short order tickets for the cook - in a diner?

Or! You could hang spare socks on it in the laundry room. (that's probably NOT it, but if you repurposed it?)

...make it a good one, Pat
