What is this thing?
It was gifted to me in a bag full of castoffs from a friend headed out of town in a hurry. (The First Corollary of Junk: The amount of good stuff in the bag rises in direct proportion to how big a hurry the owner is to leave.)
I have no idea what it is.
Apparently, spending most of my time at estate and yard sales instead of auctions and farm sales has left a sizable gap in my junking IQ!
I am similarly stymied as to the provenance of this tin box. It’s rusted to a gorgeous finish, and comes with a D-ring hook, but it’s on the wrong side for hanging on a wall, unless it’s on a three-inch nail or longer. What was it used for, I wonder?
Here’s your chance to flaunt your junking bona fides!
Share your knowledge and go to the head of the class! And remember, only 127 days until the Junk Bonanza, where there will be plenty of great stuff (easily identifiable, at that) to stoke the imagination!
