Here is the new What is It, friends.

"This is also a handy tool that was used around food. It did a certain job in a "sticky" situation. Remember groceries were not packaged like they are today and sometimes you had to do a few things by hand. It is in our general store." Levi

Our last "What is It" seems to have been a puzzler, again. We did have an excellent guess from Kathy Loveless, so she gets the gold star because she thought it did mix something. Well, it is a fruit auger. When sticky things were brought out of bins to sell, sometimes you needed to loosen up those lovely prunes or the like to get them out easier. They were retrieved and weighed, then probably wrapped in paper for the trip home. What fun! Check out the price of prunes when Valentown was operating around 1900. http://www.prunebargaining.com/price.php
