Old Cobbler Tools saved by a Blogreader!

Old Cobbler Tools saved by a Blogreader!

What a great surprise arrived saturday via the postman. A follower of be-cause saved this treasure from the dustbin and decided It will be well cared and used in my hands. The postcard he attached says that the tools are from a cobbler/saddler who repaired shoes in WWII and afterwards in the neighbourhood. I really like the fact to know a bit of a background, since most tools I own, I just can makeup stories in my mind about who used them. I also like the fact that it is a complete essential leather repair kit, with beeswax, cobblers tar, needles, overstitch wheel, knife, pliers and awls. I especially like the way the stored the thread. Thanks a “PLG”!
