and one at etsy for $15.00 that did...
There are many things in life that will catch your eye,
but only a few will catch your heart...

Wonder what I paid for it. Hadn't opened it for a long time. One drawer has some mirrors in it as well as the good tough plastic we used for ID card windows. They are still clear as a crystal. Guess I need to use some of them.

Do enjoy reading of finds on the site. Sets me off into a dreamlike mood, thinking about those great discoveries.

Don't take me wrong. I have a major amount someone else's junk in the house. I have been garage saling for years and I'd hate to guess how many I've been to that were a waste of time. My leatherwork finds are very few compared to how many sales I've been too. But I have always been a `Collector of collections', so I am looking for a lot of different other things too. I missed out on a major leatherwork find last summer because I wasn't an early bird.

I visit flea markets, estate sales, and junk shops constantly. Over the years I have found some amazing tools and all sorts of wonderful hardware. Its really nice to use old fittings for a project and make things with tools that have been in use for many decades. The bonus is that these things can be purchased very cheaply too. Anyone repairing or making shoes can find some really nice implements that are no longer made and very handy. It is a bit frustrating to find some neat old tools that I can't identify.
