I was at the thrift store, and this bar-b-que implement caught my eye:


I think it was the design of the wire that grabbed me.
I wandered up and down the aisles thinking of what I could do with it. Then * AHA! *

I brought it home, and with some tools I pried the handle off:


It took a lot of muscle and some cussing, but I ended up with an ATC & Photo Display!!!!




I'm going to mount this on the wall after I finish painting my studio. Cheesy

Oh, yea!!!! That is really keen.  Now I only need about 10 of them to cover a small wall entirely with ATCs.  Smiley
I'm so glad you found something that is an everyday object that people can use!

I think that if Original Youth's display hadn't stuck in my mind, I never would've thought of it. Cheesy

I'm just glad you found something that rocks just as hard, and for MUCH less moolah.
