Item details

Great Vintage tin snips for your old garage man cave or as a rustic gardening tool for your potting shed from

Measure 7 inches long and about 3 inches wide at the finger loops end. Has worn finish, but not overly rusty. Blades still open and close smoothly. You can display by a leather cord for hanging at your potting bench, or display in your workshop. Rustic primitive finish. Screw is still tight, so these could actually be used as intended. I like to use a similar pair to cut wire at my garden shed.

Heavy duty, garden or shop tool shows good vintage use, but still has much use and lots of charm for your potting bench. Seems to be a multi-use tool.

On one side near the finger loop are the letters WET. And on the other side, near the screw in an oval, are more letters. I can not make out all the letter for sure and have been unable to find the name or logo in my internet searches. But to my best ability it seems to say Auto in the middle with other letters forming an oval around it. If you have any likely matches for the name, please let me know.

Other garden decor/tools such as those shown in last photo are here:

No smoker, pet, musty odor (These are vintage items, though, so they are at least 20 years old. I will specify, if there is a noticeable musty odor.)

Additional return information
I do my best to describe items accurately and in great detail, which is why my descriptions are so long. Please zoom in and study photos and descriptions carefully. I include many specific measurements with each listing. Sizes for vintage clothing and shoes can vary from today's sizes so I recommend that you take measurements from a similar item in your own wardrobe or at a store to compare with the measurements given for the item you are considering in my shop. Contact me with any questions and I will usually answer within 24 hours. Remember, sometimes the charm of vintage means signs of aging.

Also, please be aware that colors may vary from computer monitor to monitor. I do my best to describe colors and have photos that accurately reflect those colors (on my own monitor), but variations are possible.

Vintage purchases are non-returnable. In the special case event that we mutually agree to a refund, the refund will only be given for the item itself, and NOT the shipping to or from your address. Buyer's Paypal account will be credited once the item has been received back by me. Unless an error was made by me, I generally cannot refund.

I take great care when wrapping products to ensure safe arrival; however, if an item breaks during shipping, I will refund -all I ask is that you email me a picture of the broken item. USPS insurance also requires this photo to include the packaging. I must be contacted within 3 days of delivery with pictures of any damage to provide a refund. Any other issues must be noted with me within 30 days of order (non delivery, etc.) for US orders, and 90 days for international orders.

Additional policies

Trades considered. I especially like multimedia, collage-type creations. I have lots of little jewelry and game pieces. Also lots of old packs of kids cards and flash cards. Hoping to trade for a piece you make with some of it.
