What Is It??

A Collection of  Photos – What is it?

What is it used for?

While sorting donations in the back room I hear a lot of “what is this?”  Some of the donations we receive  are new,  some are old and some really should come with instructions!   Are they decorative or useful or missing a part? Sometimes we just don’t know, but most times we figure it out!

What is your guess?

How did you do?  Did you get most of them right?

Here are the answers:

  1. A potato Ricer
  2. a sock darning tool
  3. cherry pitter
  4. no clue – what’s your guess?
  5. a mug holder?  It came in with scrap book supplies.
  6. a flag stand
  7. a flower arranging tool, you put it over the vase and stick flowers through it
  8. part of a car seat cover
  9. a cake tester
  10. you put this under you pie pan to collect the spills while baking.
  11. a safety harness maybe? This item needs instructions!
  12. a crochet cover for a square tissue box.

At DIBS! On Resale we are blessed with donations from clothes to furniture and sometimes antiques.  This spinning wheel is beautifully handcrafted.  It is a well-balanced smooth-working tool that will work as well today as it did when it was made decades ago in Yugoslavia.  We also have a beautiful little tea cart.  The original Imperial Furniture sticker on the bottom identifies it as made in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
