Vintage Industrial

I love old industrial items. It takes me back to when I was a kid, looking at some of the old things my dad had stashed in the garage like old tools that belonged to my grandfather. These metal drawers really take me back, though. They make me think of the old strong box my dad had tucked away in the closet. Every once in a while we'd pull it out and look through all of the old keepsakes he kept in there, which were also things that were my grandfather's. Things like medals and his varsity letter for running track in high school and newspaper clippings; things my father cherished that he wanted to share with me.

So now I'm sharing with you some of my favorite industrial style vintage items from Etsy!
