Well a guy has to get lucky once in a while. Today i scored a bunch of free leather working tools and other random stuff. A school was cleaning out some unused classrooms and storage areas and throwing stuff away that had not been used for years. Just so happened one of the people tossing stuff came across these leather tools and thought of me so they saved the box and asked if they could keep it for me. The admin at the school said sure its no good anyway since nobody will ever use it again. They kept the box and brought it to me next time they were in the area. The date stamped on one leather keychain that is unfinished is 1978!! One of the oldest teachers there has worked there for 25 years and said she didnt even know they had the stuff. So far what i have found are 6 new swivel knives, 32 different stamps/punches, two plier style hole punches, tons of lacing needles, a tandy 1/2 inch alphabet set, a tandy numbering set, and 6 1/4 inch thick rubber work mats, and about 10-15 keychain kits. A great score for me, and what would have been a real shame if it ended up in the dumpster. Just makes a guy wonder what else these places toss in the trash.
