Default Flea Market find

Picked these 2 old leather gun cases for $25 total this morning. Both need repair. The long one would hold 32 in Paker barrels, or 34s without a doll's head.
The smaller would take 26 in Parker barrels or 28 without a dolls head. Will take them to Hausmanns to see if Kevin McCormick thinks they are worth repairing. I know that there is another member that repairs them also, but can't recall the name.

Did you try to talk the seller down?...

Hmmm...how come when I go to flea markets, all I get is fleas?! Nice find, Harold. I hope you can get them back to use.

Sure did Dean, he wanted 15 apiece. Isn't that how it's supposed to work?
They both need repair. I like to use these old leather cases to ship guns in. They are stout, of course they go inside a cardboard box also.

Harold when you get to Hausemanns look for the Fox Collectors exhibit under the tent Mr. McCormick can hook you up ! Matter of fact he has three of mine I need to pickup from him that Thursday . Kevin’s fixed a pile of case problems for me in two years .
