RUBBERMAID MUSHROOM KITCHEN CANISTER
(Scroll down to read item description/condition below story)

Betty Clausen lifted the mushroom decorated lid off her Rubbermaid flour canister and reached in with her measuring cup but there was barely a 1/4 cup of flour left at the bottom. Cookies were no longer an option. Just about then, ten year old daughter, Susan, rolled into the kitchen wearing her green Girl Scout uniform.

"Mom, I need to bring those cookies to troop meeting, did you bake them yet?"

"We're out of flour Susan, so I can't make cookies," Betty replied as she frantically opened cupboard doors looking for baking inspiration.

"But Mom, the girl's are counting on me, it's my week to bring them." Susan said as he eye's began to well up with tears.

"Don't panic Susan, we'll think of something." Betty said as her eye's began to light up. She had found a key ingredient to address the crisis, a box of Rice Krispies.

Ten minutes later, Susan beamed as she stepped out the door with a box full of gooey puffed rice goodness. She called back to her Mom who was standing at the doorway, wiping her hands on her apron, "You're the grooviest Mom in the whole world."

ITEM DESCRIPTION:
Here's a fun blast from the 1970s-- a large Rubbermaid plastic kitchen canister with groovy mushrooms decorating the top of the lid. It is marked "2226" on the bottom which is probably the pattern #. It stands 9.5" tall with the lid on and is 9" in diameter at is widest point. The canister is made of hard plastic which is a light Dijon mustard gold color while the lid is a lighter cream color with bright gold, brown, orange, blue, green and black mushroom graphics printed on top. The piece is ready to complete your Rubbermaid collection or stands on its own as a retro-themed storage piece.

CONDITION:
This canister is in very good vintage condition and looks like it has been well cared for over the years. We found no cracks, chips or stains--just a few light scratches/scuffs. The interior is clean and free of stains.
