My dad collects antique toy cars, which frequently brings him to antique fairs and flea markets. While there, if he finds something that he thinks will interest me or my sisters, he gets it and saves it for holidays and birthdays. When I went home for Thanksgiving, my dad had this for me: an antique tin of Staedtler colored pencils! Isn’t this great? Years ago he and my mom got me a large tin of Staedtler watercolor pencils, brand new. I love that now I have an old one, too, made in Germany.
Needless to say, I won’t actually be using these to make anything! They’re too pretty and old!
