What ARE these?

Mystery of the day.

Bought a bag full of string, yarn and thread at the thrift store the other day and these wood things were in the bag too:

1.19.13 ets custom 091Anyone of you know what these are and it they are worth trying to SELL in my etsy shop.  They are beautiful solid wood.

1.19.13 ets custom 092This little plastic doo-dad was in there too.

1.19.13 ets custom 093And these three wood things.

I’m really just curious as to what they are.  Assuming they have something to do with knitting, so I will never need them.  If these are something that one of you could use, or know someone who needs them; I’d be happy to sell all of them in one lot for $5.00 and the cost of shipping.

*****EDITED TO ADD*****

For some reason the word ‘shuttle’ kept coming to mind when I saw these, but I’ve never SEEN one before, so how would I know what it was?!?!?  But after the first few comments, I decided to do a search and found this information:

So, the ARE shuttles!  Weaving shuttles though; nothing to do with knitting.   The offer to sell them CHEAP is still good for a while.  If no one snaps them up, (and now that I know what to call them!) I’ll just sell them in my etsy shop as supplies.

UPDATE:  These WEAVING SHUTTLES have gone to a good home.  Thank you all for your input!
