Antique Tools - Grandpa's Treasure Chest


We Don't Just Sell Antique Tools and Fishing Equipment

Important Message  January 26, 2018

I woke up this morning to my Neighbor pounding on my front door.

Apparently some idiot sheared off the fire hydrant in front of the house and managed to drive away. There was a wall of water running downhill into my shop. I ended up with 5 feet of water in the shop. It will take me a few days to gain access and find what survived. I know the loss will be heavy. I will have to update the website too. I will let everyone know when I have more info. Thanks for understanding,
