A box is a wonderful thing. Pretty, decorative, it stores, it organizes. The fit of the top and the bottom can be so pleasing. And there’s an aura of mystery… Whatever could be inside? A friend of mine says a box is like a secret.
And then there’s the tin box.
The colorful designs can age beautifully over time, creating gorgeous patinas. Vintage tins carry a social history in the graphics of their era and intended use, and a personal history of scratches and dings and names etched into metal that day-to-day life has earned them. They whisper for your romantic trinkets, mementos, and papers to be stored within. To be collected and displayed.
I've been selling vintage tins for several years now. Join me in my passion, and add your own chapter to the journey of these lovely jewels.
