Tuesdays Treasure


Any guesses to what this could be? Peter, the kids and I were at Goomeri for the Pumpkin Festival a couple of years ago and we stumbled across this item in one of the Antique stores. They were used in the old horse driven coaches, filled with hot coals and placed under the feet of travellers. Fancy Foot warmers for coaches.

  3. That is very cool.
    My hubby, son and I passed through and even actually stopped at Goomeri on our last trip to Bowen from Newcastle. I really liked it there. Hamburgers were huge.
    Love your treasure, I have never seen one of those before. It is fabulous.
    Have a great week.
