Announcement   ALL THE DECORATIVE PRESSED TINS You will find on my OLD CEILNG TIN SITE are all USA Made. I ONLY USE (found) old ceiling tin recovered from old buildings (Prior to 1800s). I'm sure you will find these TINS (made from old tin ceilings) DIFFERENT than what you will find any place else! You might notice I've added some New Sections to my Old Tin Site...."All of my DRAWINGS / PAINTINGS and Wood Sculpture are ORIGINAL "no copies." the Latest (Colorful Hot Pads) I make from New T-shirts." I'm still old tin stuff but I'm Filling in until I find more Old Tin Ceilings to use.......THEY ARE OLD,SCRATCHED,DENTED,A BIT RUSTY and in most cases I have no idea what building or buildings they were removed from.....altho sometimes I know the City or Town or State they came from. For the most part all the old lead paint has been removed.... All the items you find on this site are OLD ["but New./ old." ]......( YOU ARE NOT GOING TO FIND JUST THE SAME OLD THING) ...If your're looking for a really different (GIFT) "SOMETHING THAT NO ONE ELSE HAS...(you came to the right place) ...... All items are Made inUSA .,,,Old Tin Stuff has for years only sold in Craft Shows. Our old tin planters and other tin holders as they were stacked and displayed on the tables were a great way for our buyers to sort thru them and pick out something that fit their need or want. It was a wonderful way in a mass display of our items. That method worked very well and now we can see if the Etsy way will work as well.....So my advice is to look and imagine how a "plant holder" or other holder will fit what your looking for....Maybe a "tissue holder." Take your time, the're really "different."

Each one of my old ceiling tin holders are different and no two are the same, therefore what you see on Etsy are the only one's I list and you see in this grouping.

I also sell at the Warrensburg Art and Craft Show in the ADIRONDACK MOUNTAINS of UpState NY in (July) and again with a different grouping of old tin planters/holders

About

Repurpose of old tin ceilings

I had alot of old ceiling tin from restoration work and decided to turn it into useful items for the home....All items are made from old tin ceilings reclaimed from salvage yards,dumptsters and where ever I can find them. All the old ceiling tin is cleaned of any toxic paint then re primed and painted with an acrylic paint wipe. ( my secret method.)
The re-painting colors are totally random and used to enhance the pressed design....otherwise they would be in just white.

I am a restoration artist. I have worked for years with old tin ceilings. WE at, old tin stuff, have spent several years selling the various plant an other type of holders at Craft Shows in the Northeast. The shows have always done very well because people have been able to pick through the various tins of size and color and decide how one or more items will work for them. The table was full of many, many different old hand made tins and the buyers had a ball. Needless to say we sold real well in a Craft Show setting. Now that we've got into ETsy type setting we are curious to see if it will work on a one on one picture basis. Time will tell so we'll see how it goes,if not we will go back to the Craft Show way. Thanks for your interest.

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
Payment
I accept personal checks and money orders and PayPal
Shipping
I ship 3 to 5 days after I recieve payment. Usually I use USPS.The post office tells me it takes 5 to 7 days for your package to arrive at your location.(USA)
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds are okay with me, it's your cost to send it back, then I will refund your purchase price (minus shipping)...If you find the old tin item is not what you expected, because you only viewed it in a photograph and (not in the real time on a display table) I'll be most happy to exchange it at your cost to send it back to me.(shipping)
Additional policies and FAQs
All the colors or rust areas are more or less what you see in the photographs. These are made from old tin and for the most part they have the coloring from the building they were removed from. Sometimes I enhanced the stamped design by wiping additional color over what's there. (Acrylic color).
I roll the top edge of each tin and add in a wood bottom.
