Found this at the Liberty Thrift Shop in Collegeville, PA.  This was probably made when souvenirs were actually worth purchasing.  “Pencil Parking”?  I won’t use it for pencils but will definitely use it to store paint brushes.

    Insanely jealous of this one! Such a waste of space to store 4 pencils though. And I love that it’s decorated in 22K gold – for what?… a bunch of pencils?!

    Do you actually store liquid in the jug part? Mmmm, lead poisoning.
