Estate sale score - mini tool chest

We went to an estate sale yesterday in Nelson. There wasn't too much in the way of furniture - I think that the pickers had all ready been through before the doors opened. But there were a few boxes of small things in the garage that I scored. My favourite is this mini, steel, tool chest. It's in very good condition. The drawers work perfectly. I'm not sure what I will do with it. It's a great size for postcards and stamps. The pictures don't show the colour too well - it's quite green. Very fun. So for a total of $5 I got this little chest and another cigar box, some very old bronze cowboy bookends and, last but not least, a vintage cow :-)

That tool box is terrific find and only $5!!! Looks like you've found a good use for it already...add some lining to the drawers so everything stays put and you've got a unique jewelry box. Love it!
