Do you want to know the story behind this red pump oil oiler?
My family and I moved to Toronto, Canada about 22 years ago. I still remember our house and all its contents piece by piece, all my mom's antiques and my dad's tools. Every time my parents go back to Iran, I would ask for a piece that has sentimental value for me ( As I said I know better than even my mom what is still left there). Few years back, I asked for this oiler (which was sitting in our garage, up on a shelf, from the time I can remember). It does not have any monetary value and I could have got one similar to this here probably for $10 but it would not be the same, would it?
For this display, I put together some of my "Made in Canada" finds. I have a big weakness for anything, I tell you anything, from Canada.
The archive File Clip Board belonged to "Made To Wear" company and still has a page with all the costs for their offices in Richmond, Bloor and Hamilton. Amazing, right?
When I was putting this post together, I could imagine my sister's face. Let's just say she does not enjoy distressed objects even if they were brand new. She finds them depressing and affecting her mood negatively. How do you feel about vintage or antique objects that show their age and wear?
I found some items similar to my display from ebay:
Thank you so much for stopping by! But make sure you come back tomorrow!
