A True Bricoleur

Pin It
Please let me remind you...

Bricoleur: (n) French brik-e-loo'-er
one who makes creative and resourceful use of whatever materials are at hand, regardless of their original purpose.

Very often we find items that just can't be used again for what the were created to be.

~The Cake Pans~
I love them like this, but it would take a very large space to display them this way.
This is a little better, a display stand.

Think of all the things that could be showcased on this stairstep display.

This is my favorite pic.  From large to small, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven!

Back to the original, I love all those circles.  Those must have been some pretty cakes that were turned out of these.

O.K., do you want to know what the customer that bought these was going to use the pans for?
Jewelry & Belt display.
"creative use, regardless of its original purpose"

I love my customers, you all are so creative!

So... If you have purchased anything from us, either in one of our stores or at an antique show, that has been used in a creative way, let me know!  I would love to hear from you.
