Beautiful Vintage: Irresistibly Geek

I love accents of vintage tools in my work desk!  Of course, a vintage collectible should not only be decorative but functional as well.  Most of the items featured here are in good, working condition.

I think the hues work perfectly with each other: light blue, bluish green, yellow and metal.  These are the colors I would love for my work space.  Check out my picks!  Be sure to click on the links to read more details about each item and be directed to the seller.
