Well, I guess we won’t have to worry about running to the hardware store this winter because the house we bought came with a lifetime supply of nails, screws, washers, nuts, bolts and a ton of other manly man bits and bobs. Giddy up!
I know you are all totally jealous. 😉
Not only did we score a sweet collection of hardware any old man would be proud of, but about half of the loot was in an assortment of old coffee cans. Clearly, grandma wasn’t picky about her coffee brands. This is Yankee country after all, and I’m sure that whatever was on sale at the grocery store, was the flavor of the week. 🙂
But even more amusing than the variety of cans, was the fact that these old coffee tins fetch a pretty penny online on sites like Ebay and Etsy. Who knew? I found one listing for a set of 8 similar coffee tins on Etsy for $59.99! Who buys stuff like that? Seriously.
We’ve got nails in jelly jars…
And baby food jars…
And trays full of man bits.
I don’t know what would be faster… driving to town for a nail, or searching half the day through the various tins, jars and drawers for just the right one.
All I know is this…
The HH, he is now officially in the Old Man Club.
Lucky, lucky me. 😉
Have a great Thursday everyone, I hope your day rocks.
