My wife and I have our own business, Flaim Design Co, where we sell antique, vintage and hand made home decor items in two locations in the Cincinnati area. We started this business a couple of years ago when we combined both of our businesses into one. She was Bella Chic Decor, and I was MVFlaim Furnituremaker. Together we are Flaim Design Co.
Around the age of thirteen, I started collecting antique tools. When visiting my grandparents in Detroit, MI, I would always hang out in my grandpa’s garage. He was a mechanic who restored old cars like Model T’s and had a 1919 Maxwell in his garage that I thought was the coolest thing on earth. My grandfather seeing that I had an interest in woodworking, gave me a few his tools he never used. The first tool he gave me was an old hand cranked drill press that I still own today. While staying with my grandparents for a few weeks during the summer, they would take me to area flea markets to find some bargains for themselves. Extremely bored, I decided to look around for some old tools to add to my budding collection of hand tools. After a few purchases of hand planes, I became an antique tool collector. Today I sell antique tools on ebay.
This is my tool cabinet full of antique tools that I use on a daily basis. I update it about once a year and replace some of the old tools with new tools I recently purchased. As it stands today it holds over 200 tools, most of them being antique.
