Not a traditional fairy but rather a streetwise', happy-go-lucky, modern fairy.

It is described as "a whalebone line-winder incised with the figure of a bird" from north Norway, however there is no indication of how big the artifact is.

Idea to reuse the pencil bucket things I bought: make up a basket for each table group with different supplies. Table managers grab the buckets from specified location when needed. ????
