This week, I would like to show you some vintage tins. I purchased these from two separate estate sales. I thought that they were unusual, and liked them right off. Especially the color.
Here is a set of Blue Magic Krispy Kans. I believe these date back to the 1940's and 50's. Love the red on these.
And since they were designed to keep crackers and chips fresh, don't you just love the designs on the sides?
Here are the directions underneath the lid. I have not used these for food, I wonder if they would work like they were intended?
Here is a view of the top of the lid, look, it still has the "magic stuff" in the lid.
This is the underneath side of the tin itself. I guess the person who had this was an antique dealer. I did not pay the "Firm" price for these. In fact, I paid $10.00 for the set.
This is a really cute bread keeper. I found this at another estate sale a few months back. I paid $5.00 for this. I fell in love with the birds and pine cones on the front, it reminds me of the birds at our cabin in Colorado.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my vintage tins today. Have a great week everyone!
Notice: I am using a different link system this week. It should work the same...Just insert your blog name and blog address. Mr. Linky is having lots of issues and problems, and frankly, I did not want to deal with that. I am not sure how this new link will work out, but I will try and monitor it as soon as the post today publishes. Hopefully, we will have no problems and I will not have to insert Mr. Linky. Crossing fingers!!
If you have not entered my giveaway for my one year anniversary....click HERE to do so, winners will be announced over the weekend.
