This is a junk find in and of itself.  I painted the wooden hand bright blue and decoupaged scrapbook paper on it with motivational quotes.  I can actually put cards in all the fingers!  Would you give me high five on this one?
Does anyone know what you call this?  I like it b/c it was crusty and rusty so I snatched it up. 
I found if you just flip the whatchamacallit on its side that the handle and base makes for a great card holder.
This is not your plane ole business card holder, now is it?
This is a play off of Sues creative use of dominos http://www.junkmarketstyle.com/item/9277/organize-your-desk-with-dominoes.  I think she did placecard holders too, was that one of the Today Show segments?
  And member AuntieQ18 had a great post too! http://www.junkmarketstyle.com/item/5805/dominos. 
After seeing their clever creations, I was game to try playing with some dominos myself.  Game on!

I have a few art shows, classes and sales coming up where I wanted to find a clever way to display my business or calling cards.  So, I went "shopping" in my workshop to try to find something I already had on hand.  Much to my delight, I came up with quite a few options.  What do you think, do you have a fave?  How do you display your cards.  Do tell!

Welcome as a contributor. My brain is mush from a busy week and not sure if I've congratulated you or not, but if so, this post deserves a 2nd round.
