vintage tins- i love them

I love collections. I love collecting vintage this's and that's. I especially love old tins with great graphics. The above photo shows my small collection of antique tins that were used for various items-candies, powder, typewriter ribbon etc. They are one of the items I collect of many that are actually quite useful to hold my odds and ends and so I have them around my place: in the bathroom to hold tiny jewelrey that never made it back to the jewelrey box and barrettes, ribbons and hair ties. In the bedroom to hold darning needles, yarn tags, bits of yarn, thimbles or other sewing accessories.
I plan to add to this collection and replace other items in not-so-nice boxes in pretty tins.
