Vintage Cookie Cans are for Today!


It has been a snowy, rainy day in New Jersey, no April Fool's joke, unless God is playing April Fool's!

I have a collection of vintage cookie cans or tins. I love the vintage pictures on the lids. They are still very usable as, well, . . . cookie tins! Why buy a new cookie can for more than $3 or $4, when you can get a beautiful vintage cookie can for the same or lower cost? Here are some photos of the cookie cans in my collection.

This is a cookie tin I picked up recently for 97 cents at the Goodwill thrift store. This one is in my booth at Rosebush Antiques.

Another way to use vintage cookie cans today, if you like the art work on the lids, is as, well . . . art! Just take the lid off the can and hang it on the wall. They make great kitchen art.

I hope you have a GREAT day.

Sincerely, Lynn
