My hubby is into antiques, his parents used to sell them. They used to travel all over the world and buy pieces and ship them to the US. So he always has a eye for this sorta things. We have several pieces here and there. One piece is from the 1800 's. All Hand made wood. Stunning. Another piece also same time frame clearly from Germany because it has a piece of newspaper inside it all in German.
I love depression glass, and get lucky and find pieces in thrift shops. The local place has a lot of neat vintage finds. Garage sales too can be a good place to find some items too.

Your mention of tractor tools reminds me of a neighbor on our lake. He built a small bar in his cabin and has the greatest stools in the world. He hunted around and found four old cast iron tractor seats and made stools with them. I'm sure the seats are worth a gazillion dollars apiece today. One John Deere, one Allis Chalmers, Mpls Moline, and Case.
