I love hardware stores. I particularly love the assorted tools in the baskets just before the check out. They all might be useful one day.
When an eclectic antique store displays assorted tools and combines their collection with nostalgia, I want to give the distinguished tools a good home.
These beautiful tools are not cheaply made pretend tools - they are the real deal designed to last for generations. Here they are speaking to us from an era when workmanship mattered.
