Old Tools Rescue at the Flea Market

    Finding nice old tools at the Flea Mrket has become one of my Sunday morning habits. So, every sunny Sunday I take the quest of  finding old treasures between mountains of crap. Indeed, I’m feeling myself like a treasure hunter on the pirates island!

   Here’s what I found in my last three or four trips:

Can I ignore them?! 
Stay tuned, will be continued!
