Dusty Rusty Vintage Tins

These lovely tin cans are from a collection of a handyman of very vintage years who wanted to clean out space in his basement. I was very pleased to help by taking away as many cans as he was willing to sell.

Lots of dirt of the ages, rust, spider webs.


The Old Colony Maple Syrup from Quebec was my favorite of these finds.


A few food tins, vintage.


Followed by some non food tins, also vintage.


Vignettes/decorations for the funky junky home.

Thanks for visiting.

  1. What fun finds.

    At our former home I had space above my kitchen cabinets for display and I had lots of colorful tins, but only one was truly vintage.

    Have fun styling your tins.

  10. Love your great collection of tins. I have a collection featured above my kitchen cabinets but mine were purchased when we moved in which has been 24 years. Your "a Vintage Green" blog is one I hope to keep up with!

  11. Joy... the Old Colony syrup tin is a keeper. Love it. I really love old tins, so colorful and great graphic. I am also attracted to the metal spools that held wire and string. Have a wonderful day.
