Rummaging through the tool bench looking for small nails to tack down the linoleum floor that tucks under the dishwasher, these three packages caught my eye.
I can't remember if we bought them, or, more likely, they were included in a bundle of hand-me-down tools and supplies.
A bit tattered around the edges, each package has something that makes it stand out: the Atlas globe with piercing nail; custom lettering on the Superior brand name; and Arrow's target marketing for women . . . apparently well-manicured nails are a must when stapling!
It's a small collection, but a collection worth documenting. If you are interested, Forbes' Eight Ways To Make Collecting Pay Off covers some interesting aspects of collecting including value, what to avoid and what to look for . . . and some crazy expensive violins.
