Vintage Collections : Industrial Metal Love Rusty Crusty Salvage

Junkyard Gypsy on Etsy offers these three metal clocks for $45
If these clocks could tell us their story, what would they say? Would they explain where they have been for the past fifty years? Only time will tell...

$40 for 20 Skeleton Keys from MissEmilyGene on Etsy.
I love dirty old metal. The rustier and crustier the better. I don't know why, I tend to lean towards owning these little dirty treasures of yesteryear.  Some get used in my mixed media art or assemblage sculptures, wherein the others' fate remains to be seen. Something about coveting them certainly appeals to me.  While I try to figure out why, I'll share some of my favorite finds with you.
Tag Sale Finds on Etsy offer these metal film canisters for $25.
Mandahxo on Etsy offers these vintage spice tins for $22.
Drill bits by OpenDoorStudio on Etsy, $24
Vintage Scissors by PassedBy on Etsy $22
