object love…flea market finds part 2

I saw these gorgeous block and tackle, hooks and trucks at the Alemany flea market the week before, and I could not stop thinking about them. I was determined to have them. We have a small collection of measuring and marking tools, and I thought these would be a nice addition. 

So, after searching two flea markets and crossing the Bay Bridge I found them at the Alameda Market! Again, overpriced, but with some bargaining, I scooped them up at a fair price. Now the tricky part is to figure out how to display them. 


D also found a box full of dice. He loves dice. I hope it's not indicative of a future spent at the craps table. We fished through the pile and walked away with these.


And how could I pass up these adorable vintage Valentines?
