It's original purpose was to hold rubber stamps. I don't have a lot of bracelets, but it would be a neat display if I did.
Any ideas??

Photo's, postcards, greeting cards, jewelry. It's a great item. See something similar here.

If you could take it apart the two holders would make great snowflakes to hang or nice things to sit potted plants on. Would it hold little pots which could in turn be filled with stuff? ~Anj

You could use it as a spicerack by filling test tubes with spices and plugging them with corks.
You could insert prescription bottles and use it for sorting small items - beads, buttons, safety pins, screws, etc.
Don't know if this would work or not, but you could hang it upside down and use it to hold wineglasses.

How about holding makeup, lotions and/or perfumes?
As a desk organizer.......holding bills, notices, schedules?
Do you need anything to hold tools.......the most used ones like pliers, small hammer, screwdrivers, tubes of nails/screws?
Could you use it atop something to twirl around outside and hang beads/ribbons from it?
Would it be possible to hang seasonal ornaments from it? Children's pictures/artwork?
Maybe take it apart and use each wheel to make a "sun" on a wall or fence?
Might be neat with mirrors behind them or brightly painted pieces of wood. THey look cool......

Just some ideas......Julie

Thanks for all the ideas!

It won't hold cd's (they slip out) nor anything else with much weight. Paper and cards don't really work in it either. It could possibly work upside down to hold wine and other stemmed glasses as Jade suggested.

I also thought of either adding plexiglass circles on top the flat metal pieces (it does come apart)and use it as a cookie or candy server. OR I could use it to display vintage hankies which I already have a small collection of.

Keep the ideas coming!

Clip in test tubes and use it as a flower holder for a different type of centerpiece.

This is so funny, I saw one of these today and almost picked it up. It wasn't rotating though, it was 2 rows of the clips.
Let us know what you do with it.

robolady, that is so cool! I have no ideas, but I remember seeing racks like that when I was a kid, which wasn't too long ago.

It is a old stamp holder. The one like the post master would use.

Yes, a rubber stamp holder.

Lydia, my first thought was to use it to display tiny black and white school photos - you know the kind that are smaller than wallet sized?

They'd be turned to the side, but that's okay, cause everybody immediately wants to twirl the darn things, anyway! LOL

Good find!

How big is it? Would small cups or baby food jars fit. I have so many small items for crafting that i need at hand, and that would be great to put on my table for small scissors, needles, glue sticks,beads, etc,etc,etc, LOL. lots of things.


 o
RE: Any ideas for this? PIC

Baby food jars would be too wide, small vases would work if they were wider at the top. Pictures would have to be tied on. Old black and whites would make a neat display though!

It's still just sitting here. I'm hoping I run into some of those white spice jars at a yard sale. They are too expensive for me on eBay!

RE: Any ideas for this? PIC

okay this might sound weird but would test tubes fit it? if so you can find them all different sizes and there easy to find.. ....well in nj there easy to find lol...add your spices or vinegar or oil mixes and add a cork...
