Nifty Kitchen Canisters - Collecting since my Teens
They cost me 10 cents at a fete at Wiley Park, in the 60s.
I saw the same set at an antique store last year for over $200.
In this picture, you can also see one of my retro salt and pepper shakers. These sorts of things can occasionally still be picked up at garage sales.
I also included a 50/60s can for coffee. I love the little drawings that used to be on this type of thing.
This tin, is sitting on a couple of old books I bought recently. I have a lot of hardcover books from the 50s onwards. Cookbooks and children's books are my favourites.
Maybe, I'll make handbags out of some of them one day!
