In the expeditions that people have in vintage stores, in flea markets or in antique markets, it is almost certain that you will find a lot of valuable treasures that were abandoned by others and that perhaps did not value the importance of the objects.
For this reason, it is important to take care of your portfolio because the moment you find something interesting you will have the need to buy it, however, you do not always have to know what exactly they are for, they are simply acquired for their design, their age or for attracting attention.
The following examples are valuable for several reasons, but mainly because no one has a clue about their function, let alone so many years after they were last used.
