This gadget was at a local church rummage sale.  Since I have no idea what it is, what it goes to, or how it is supposed to "work," I refer to it as a crafter light sabre.  There was no cord, brochure, or other gizmo that looked like a possible companion contraption.  None of the sale workers knew anything about it.  My guess is something to do with scrapbooking.  Hopefully you good folk can enlighten me about it.

In the past, things that were unsold went to a couple organizations (missions, shelters) that would pick up the items.  However, they were/are picky on what they need and what they would take.  The church still had to contend with getting rid of unsold items.  This year to combat the issue, during the last day of the sale, the church charged a $3 entrance fee, and let folks take what they wanted with no limits or bag requirements.  It is my crafty Christian duty to support such a worthy cause.  A well tended sewing machine in a cabinet came home with me (priced $40 for the sale), along with the lighted contraption and a few other items.   I haven't had time to tinker with the sewing machine.  It has the original manual, which is worth the $3 itself lol.

I have no idea what you would need a paper cutter with a light, it's odd. But I get you JS. I can't resist cheap craft supplies, even if it's a craft I never do.

I ended up with a large box of rugmaking wool last week. It was all cut to length so couldn't really be used for anting rise-i don't need more unfinished crafts in my life! But it was at a charity shop so I had to buy it, right?

Fortunately my lovely friend used to do rug making years ago, so she is getting them.

I would love a personal swap with yo

What an odd little thing. It looks very specific, it must have a defined purpose though I can't imagine what that could be.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.


Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

greybird, I bet you're right!  The link you shared does look like my gizmo.  Thanks for solving the mystery!  Mine didn't come with the blades, which gives me something to research.   I like the measured markings and will use it for my sewing projects. 

edelC, your purchase helped a good cause.  Charity and thrift shops are fun!  Your friend will enjoy the rug yarn.  It's fun to meander through secondhand shops and find things to transform.

clm, it is the additional light for your craft room!  Cheesy Grin Tongue
