Todays mystery items hang on a wall in the museum.
Two items that would used by men to create or repair something. I will post the answer here later in the day.
Two weeks left. It is actually five days because I have days off. I am more than ready to be done for the season.
The shelves in my office are not getting bare. Saturday was a quiet day, when I got done with research questions I hit the accessions hard. The “stuff” that has been hidden under my desk for three plus years has been accessioned or sorted out for the rummage sale room. ( The Director before me stuffed one item after another under the desk.) See that box next to the pink bag…Tom brought me that one. Tom is a saver, I just peaked inside..oh my. I may save that one for next spring. Tess and I just finished his last box which contained about 60 hometown newspapers from 1941 to 1946.
The weather has turned cold, I need a sweater or a sweatshirt in the museum now. We have a fundraiser this week. A Soup and Salad Luncheon, I will donate potato salad. The luncheon is held upstairs in the Great Gallery ( old courtroom), I have not been up there all summer to see the “art.” Since it is one of my days off I will take my big girl camera and take some photos:)
On the left we have a Wagon Makers Rasp.
On the right A two sided shave. Very rare. Probably used for shaping spokes of wagons and buggies:)
