I have a LOT of hats and some scarves and fingerless mitts. Some are alpaca, the rest are wool or merino wool. The only thing I have old and rust and unique is myself.

Bonnie, you need to add your shop name so we can check out YOUR shop. I think you do it on your profile page.

Have you tried browsing the Antiques & Vintage categories?  Old books are under the Entertainment section.  Good luck!

I will check that out,Thanks. Old rusty containers and old outlet covers are also something I am interested in. I have a DIl that loves old and rusty. At times she will do what she can to make it more rusty

Hi Bonnie,
I have a really rusty old tool box. I haven't got it listed just yet. Would you be interested?

As far as shopping for the men on your list, consider if they collect anything special, or have hobbies. My husband always liked getting something new for his collection(s) no matter large or small. He still likes looking for books on submarines, but buys only if his sub is in it. Would they like something for their office (or home office) pertaining to their profession (old or new photos, ads, prints, wood or metal signs, paper weights, etc). Do they enjoy drinking a certain beverage (coffee, beer, brandy), perhaps a special mug or glass with a humorous message. 

As far as old history books, do you mean old as in antique (leather bound, decorative) or vintage. If vintage, is there a certain topic they enjoy - books on old movies, cars, sports, military, art, travel, etc. If you can narrow down to what they like, hopefully, your search will be a bit easier.

Also, if you see something but it's not exactly what you want, ask the seller if they could make something for you. Some of the ArtYah artisans create fascinating things. In fact, I'm planning to contact one seller to see if he can make 2 of something similar to what I see in his shop.

Good luck, and I hope you find a lot of your gifts on ArtYah!

How about handmade pens?  I especially like the wooden ones.

Do any of those professional men like horror decor? 

Abstract art? Landscape art? If anything, I do custom work and have done all 3 themes and more! (Feel free to message me)
