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 HERE to do so, winners will be announced over the weekend.

  10. Those tins are SO neat! I've not heard of them nor seen them before! I do wonder if they work. Then again, maybe those blue crystals are uranium or something!
    The bread tin is unique. It's Christmaslike!

  11. Love that bread tin with the birds and cones! Fabulous VTT!

  12. Oooo, I love the tins..and the 3D look of the crackers and chips... my favorite tho is the breadbox..and the wonderful tablecloth it's sitting on. Happy VTT and have a lovely week..

  13. Hi Suzanne! Thank you for hosting this fun party! This is my first time participating. Cute vintage tins! I have several vintage tins I display in my country kitchen. I will share them at another Vintage Thursday.


  14. Cool tins and I totally covet your bread box!!! Cardinals are my fav!

  15. I love the little birds on that bread tin, they look like they'd be perfect for a Christmas card!

  16. Those are neat. I use something similiar to dry out my hearing aids when the moisture builds up. I think it is call Dri-aid. But I do have to re-heat the pellets(they look more like pellet) until most of them have turned blue. Can be done in the microwave. Works!

  17. Suzanne,
    Those are wonderful vintage pieces.
    Not sure i will get a post done today.
    Did not get over to get pics of anything this week.

    blessings, and I'll sign up if get something put together..
