One of my favourite New Zealand bloggers, Op Shop Mama has started a linky party about collections.
It's a chance for us all to join in on the fun & share our collections, whatever they may be! I thought it would be a chance for any newer followers to see some of my stash that may have made an appearance before.
So obviously this is my canister collection. It all started with the set of 1950's Nally Ware which was given to me by the Captains Mum. I think they are my favourites, because of the family history, as well as the pretty colours.
I found this 1960's Waratah wood grain effect spun aluminum canister set at a local market for $8.
I bought this orange set at a collectables fair last year.
It was made by the British Plastic Pty Ltd
The white set above was passed onto me by a friend of my Mum's
And my Mum gave me the orange set for Christmas
Old wooden canister set from a car boot market for $3
These were my first canister purchase from a collectables fair about 4 years ago.
Forgive the dusty lids! I love the anodized green.
The pair of green canisters were from the Coolangatta Antiques Centre a few years ago
Willow faux wood grain canister from Salvos
Green plastic canister from a garage sale
Kingsley Ware biscuit barrel from Vinnies
And I have two of these Willow tin canisters from the Suitcase Rummage.
I love having my canisters on display, & they are handy for storing various bits & pieces too. Lets hope I don't come across anymore, because I have limited storage space.
Isn't that always the issue for a collector!?
