A sand timer is also known by different names like an egg timer, a sand glass, an hour glass etc... They have been used in history to measure time. While no longer widely used for timekeeping, the sand timer is a beautiful piece of décor and a timeless gift that one cannot ignore. It is interesting to know that both houses of our very own Australian Parliament use sand timers for day to day business. Sand timers are also fondly used in board games like Pictionary.
The sand timers we sell here at mypirateshop.com.au are simply beautiful. We have been selling these lovely presents at the Queen Victoria Market in Melbourne CBD since 2011 and have had customers from around the world who have appreciated the beauty of these interesting souvenirs and have packed them in their suitcases to gift their loved ones back home.
