 perfect for these type set pieces.
I love repurposing.

 Some cool sewing stuff. 
That spool of thread is the first one I've seen that big.

I know these go on some kind of view 'thingy',
but do not know name.

 I got a bunch of them and want to find out pricing.
Thanks for help.
Oh, I almost forgot my cool faucets.....

Squirrel Handled Brush

See the brush in this pic??
Well, I cannot find it on the internet to find out value.
I have tried a multitude of ways.
(everything comes up artists paint brushes)
Anyone know what it is for,
or what it is called?

(see it better by left clicking on pic.
then right click on new pic.
then l. click on 'view image',
then l. click again.)
It gets really big then.

Thanks for your help.
