Several years ago I started collecting old Handy Andy tool kits, like the one I had growing up. I now have over 20 of them on a shelf in my office, ranging from the 1950s to the 1970s, and they really bring back memories. I purchased most of them from eBay for $10 to $20 or received them as gifts. Some have never been used and are in perfect condition while others have seen a lot of use.
