Four colors of shoe polish from the 1940s and 1950s. Collected at flea markets and given as gifts from other collectors like myself.

A 1950s Johnson & Smith Novelty & Toy catalog... picked up at one of my favorite used bookstores in New Jersey. Pages and pages of the best, most far-out, unrealistic junk from comic book advertisements of that era in one book.
A collection of three books from the 1960s "Christopher Cool: Teen Agent" series that were given to me when I was very young. Back then, the cover illustration for "Mission: Moonfire" was my template for what I percieved to be the ultimate in grown-up sophistication and slick, worldly coolness.

More vintage items from the collection, amassed over the course of quite a few years. Depending on how you look at it, these either comprise a tool kit or an arsenal.
