Thrifted - Vintage Canisters...


I shared this photo on my personal facebook page last night and it stirred up quite the frenzy between the lovely ladies from My Vintage Childhood & Domesblissity!  


They were squabbling over who needed these gorgeous canisters more.

Apparently I need to hide them when Anne comes to visit me next as she's already planning how to smuggle them out of my house!!!


Truth be told.  I actually found this set a few months back at our local church jumble sale for a steal at .... wait for it..... $5.... yes... FIVE dollars!

I meant to share this little gem with you all ages ago, but it must have slipped my mind.


I think Hannah loves them just as much as I do.

Tell me what little gems you've picked up recently on an thrifty adventure...


PS... I'm linking up with Essentially Jess for #iBOT. if you've posted today, you can link up too!

    1. It gave me a good giggle! Although I'm quite hesitant now off letting Anne come by for a visit! :D

  2. Great find for $5.00. It's so funny that all the stuff that I have seen my parents throw away when my grandparents died, is all the stuff I am trying to hunt down these days. I think I need to go op-shopping again!

    1. My mum just shakes her head everytime she sees my finds and says stuff like "Vintage? But I had that when I was your age!" haha!

  3. Frenzy is right! LOL Oh Cass. My heart is palpitating just looking at them. I live in a vintage wilderness. Can I move near you please? You'll have to make sure those cannisters are bolted down though if I come to visit! LOL

  4. I'd be squabbling too! Vintage canisters are so hard to find cheaply. They're fantastic. Picked up a cute stretchy striped dress this week for $5. I love op shopping so much.

    1. OH, nice find! They are hard to come across at that price. I'm still on the hunt for the kind that come in lovely pastels with the words (like rice, flour, etc)in white on them. They would be my ultimate!

    1. Haha! Pure coincidence! It wasn't until I'd uploaded the photos that I'd realised just how much they matched.

  11. Love these!!!! I never ever ever find anything like this in op shops, I only find musty, smelly, broken stuff. One day I will have THE find, just hope it's not too far away :)

  12. Love these! We can't find them anymore.

  13. Well I am absolutely jealous of this little $5 find! How could you have held them back from us for so long?? haha. I picked up a similar style of cannister from a country oppie not so long ago, it was a tiny version with more of a beige look to the cannister. I must admit I love Hannah's little pilchers too! xx
