  1. I never even heard of these. Your collection continues to amaze me.

  2. Would you/do you use it? If the answer is no – give it away.

  3. I have also never heard of this. But it’s kind of cool. Do you burn a lot of candles? If so, and if you don’t have very many things of your mom’s, then I say keep. But if you do have a lot of items from her, or if you really don’t use candles that much, then go ahead and give away.

  4. When I travel, I buy things small enough to hang on my Christmas tree. Once a year I hang them on the tree, and it makes for great memories. Maybe some of the things you collected could be used by you, or someone, in this manner.

  5. keep it. it has a function.

  6. This is an extremely useful and hard to find item. I found this link when searching for one to purchase.

  7. I recently purchased 2 Taper tippers at a thrift store not knowing what they were. I paid .25 cents for each of them. Can anyone tell me what they are worth. Thanks

  8. i just found one at the fle market an like to know how muck is it worth.

  9. how much is something like this worth
