This had to be the most unusual item I found in my afternoon of wandering. It is a "Carnival" Brand Magic Bow Tyer. Not sure of the date of manufacture, but in the booklet that comes with it, there was a note from the former owner to their staff asking them to keep the booklet with the machine, and it was dated 1971. This would be the ideal pre-Christmas gift for that person who LOVES gift wrapping - think of the many happy hours that could be spent churning out your very own handmade bows for all of the presents in your family, or even your neighbourhood.
The Magic Bow Tyer is available at Phantastica - and there's only one!
