I haven't shared anything thrifty for a while so I thought I'd show you some fabulous retro kitchen canisters I picked up on holidays a couple of months ago. Here they are in all their bright red glory:
We were visiting our good friends Georgia and James on their beautiful property in the Snowy Mountain region of New South Wales and their nearest town is one called Tumbarumba. I picked up these in an Old Wares shop in the main street. As you can see, it's not the full set and the coffee canister has some damage. Nevertheless, I had to have them!
They now take pride of place in my pantry, alongside a full white set which I picked up for a song on ebay about 5 years ago.
I adore them. And yes, I do keep the flour, sugar, rice, tea and coffee in them! I use the red ones for self-raising flour, caster sugar and arborio rice.
I'm not an avid thrifter, but I take my chances when I can and I know that retro kitchen canisters are rarely found as sets and rarely cheap these days as people like me covet them for their kitchen!
Do you have a cool kitchen canister set? Show me! Send a link in my comments or upload a pic to my new flickr pool!
Linking up here, check it out to see lots of other vintage lovelies!
