I pick up a lot of cool stuff at various flea markets, thrift stores, etc. Some of my favorite things are old milk glass jars that I repurpose as abv jars. And in the background you can see an old turquoise nut/condiment dish that I use for various glass pieces I don’t want rolling around.

Sweet find Mom.

reminds me of the Ponds Face Cream jars my cousins and I archeologized from a dump on the family farm back in the 70's as kids. Treasures! My mom figured they were from the 20's and back then you just dumped your trash in the woods at the edge of a field.

maybe edit the title to Vaporizer Related Thrift Store \ Flea Market\ Antique Finds .....or something like that to make.it more inclusive?

So, this may not be right in the heart of this topic and I know that others have found this handy also, but this is a machinists tool box repurposed for vape stuff storage. Its a Gerstner knock off (the OG Gerstners are much more expensive)

I've been looking for an antique version of that for some time now. Used to see them around.. back when I wasn't looking for one lol! I'd love to get one for my special vape stuff... now that I have a grandchild that will be visiting, I'll need to start being discreet again.

Good luck...the real Gerstner's can be over $1K and even up to $2k!!

They do make "vintage" versions that...well, you can go to their site and see. It appears that they are repo's of perhaps Gerstner's that they used to make?

Amazon, Walmart, etc have the affordable knockoffs.

I have not see an true antique one and can't imagine what it would sell for if the seller knew what it was and its value

If you are looking at a knock off cheap version stick to a store as a lot are damaged or just poorly made, you need to see the axtual one you purchase to make sure you do not end up disappointed.

Here's my antique tool box. I bought it at an antique show awhile back, maybe ten years ago. The lid pops up from concealed springs when you release the latches. Then the front panel lifts off to reveal the drawers. It is solid oak and it is VERY VERY heavy.

I had it squrreled away in the basement. It needs to be cleaned up. The felt liner is grubby. It will either store my Vapcap collection or it may house some crystals. It would be perfect as a VapCap and other vape accessories storage box..
