Bird Cage Stand and Vintage Chandelier

Necessity IS the mother of invention.  My sister and I do a "craft boutique" once a year at her church and I'm responsible for all our display pieces.  She knits hats and scarves and I needed to come up with a clever display.  I raided my workshop and found an old bird cage stand and part of an old chandelier.  I cleaned them up and found these brass parts from another chandelier and turned them upside down to hold the hats without distorting their shape.  I aged all the brass and used brass caps to screw them down.  It worked out great because we could just hang them as matching sets with the scarf on the arm and the hat on the brass cap.
