What Would You Do With This Item (whatever the dadgum thing is)?

On a recent vacation with my Doves (female friends from homeschooling, who have become a support for each other even though I'm the only one left homeschooling) we made a stop at a Goodwill in Brevard, NC and hit the jackpot. We all came out with fabulous bargains. One of mine was this little item for a dollar. Cheap, but what the heck is it? I just couldn't pass it up for the price. Maybe mount it (it does have screw holes in the base end) and hang necklaces?  It does close and open like an accordion, by pulling or pushing on the red knob at the end, and will swing left or right from the base. Closed it's about 3 inches and open about 6 or 7 .  Anyone know what it is?   What would you do with it? Would you have bought it?

P.S.  I've had a number of people say it's a tie rack.  So far I'm using it as a photo display, I turned it on it's side.

  1. Oh how neat you could incorporate it into a shelf like in Ballard designs they have one well it is a towel rack in the shelf and pulls out!!

  2. Oh by the way I am a newbie from Ohio to your blog come over from Junker Newbie!!!

  3. For $1.00.. yep I'd buy it, then it would sit in a drawer and wait for inspiration... :)

  4. I wouldn't know what to do with it, but I like it because it is metal and metal attracts me.

  5. It looks like one of those stands that support the black water drain from under a camper. Hopefully I'm wrong!


I'd love to hear your encouraging comments!
