There’s gizmo’s and gadgets and who=zits and what-cha-ma-callits – and oh how people love them! They can range from small to large, techy to nerdy,
vintage to new – do you have any in your shop?
We’d love to hear your item’s story – and see your listing.
I just love this Wooden Masher, Reamer as it is my own personal antique. I bought it when I got my first house and had a strawberry patch and tomato plants. It was time to learn how to can so I could give family and friends some homemade tomato sauce and strawberry jelly. What can I say about my success? First of all no matter what I did the birds ate the strawberries even with netting on top and around. The tomato crop was better but the process of using the masher was VERY MESSY. More got around the kitchen than in the jars. I saved the tool all these years for the memories but now it is time to move on.
I love to use our zippered gadget holders for storing all our little things. I have one in my purse for pens and paper and another that I use for all my electronic chargers and cords when traveling.
This zippered pouch is sturdy and very easy to wash, and I have washed mine many times over the years. It still looks good as new.
This zippered gadget bag has an urban street art design. We photographed the art in Berlin. Remnants of the Berlin Wall still stand and are now splashed with political and hopeful art statements such as this Berlin Peace Flower.
I’ve got gadgets and gizmos of plenty
I’ve got whose-its and whats-its galore
You want thingamabobs?

Sorry, but now I can’t get this Disney’s Little Mermaid song out of my head!
This is a rusty steel spindled dampener. I just have to have some old-time rust to feel nostalgic and at home……
Cute attendant with a clever sign and a real thermometer–lots to admire!
A unique gift for a vintage car enthusiast!
I can’t pass up these quirky vintage magnetic figures with “heavy metal” guitar bottle openers. These novelty gadgets look great on a bar and are practical too. They make a great gift for that hard-to-buy-for guy!
