  1. Milk and sugar? Time to remove some dust here and bring some new items in. I hope to show some pretty new artwork in the next few days
  2. Hello Everybody, Maybe You know that I like to sniff around in little second hand shops, garage sales and jumle sales for stuff and things related to fishery and shipping. Most of the times I don't find anything or the price is so high that I can't or don't want to afford it. But sometimes I find a little treasure for a price my missus won't kill me for (if she finds out...) and I take it home to my little 'museum'. It seemed like a good idea to me to make a topic here so I can show You my new findings. First I hope to place pictures from all the items I found up to now and after that I will update every once in awhile to show You my new (shoddy works of art) NAUTICAL findings. Here's the latest Item. I found it totally broken and dust covered in a dark corner of a second hand store. I really had no idea what it was but I was sure it was fishing industry related. The price was € 2,50 and because them money would be used to help people quiting drugs I found that a good price. At home I rebuild it and added some fresh oil on the wood and this is what she looks like now.

It's a Vleetrol (dutch word) and was used to bring the 'Vleet' (a very big black cotton gillnet) from a horse wagon to the ship or the second floor of the netting manufacturer. I was said they were used up to the 1920's Here's an old picture of a 'vleetrol' vleetrol by Model Fishingships, on Flickr Hope You like my little treasure and next time I show You some really, really piece of kitch! Kind Regards, Kees
