Sometimes, among donated items, we find a few that are unknown to all of us who work there.
This causes a moment of fun within the team, as one asks the other one :”what’s this”, “I haven’t the faintest idea; does anybody know what this is?”. So we gather around and we yell out ideas.
Most of the times one of us solve the mystery. Few times we do not puzzle out; the funny part is that we still price the item and put it on the sale floor, hoping to get an answer from our customers.
And most of the times we do.
This item has two open ends, nothing that appears to connect it to other items. It’s basically a 6′ mesh tube with plastic circles at regular intervals.
It is still an unsolved mystery, but it sold!
Below is a black metal…something. But what?
It’s about 20″ long X 8″ wide.
We could not recognize the green tool shown below. We all agree that it was a kitchen utensil, but..which one? The name engraved at the top helped solve the puzzle, as we researched it on the internet….
Here is another item; I think it’s something used in construction: it appears as a 2X4 would fit in the openings.
Wine bottles holder? Who knows?
A squared plexiglass piece hinged to a grooved piece of wood. The plexiglass is double the width of the wood. Looks like a cutting board with a large cover that has no function….
If you recognize any of our mystery items, please let us know: we’ll appreciate it!
