We’re having fun reorganizing our garage and improving the storage. This motivated me to pull out two big storage bins filled with vintage Tindeco tins. Since I already have dozens of them on display inside the house, there just isn’t room for these. As I unwrapped each one from it’s bubble wrap, it reminded me of fun excursions to the weekly flea market in Edmundson, Maryland and occasional trips up to Shupp’s Grove, an antique’s flea market in Pennsylvania.
Deciding that the tins should no longer languish in storage, I created a webpage on Squidoo about Tindeco. I took photos of all the tins in one bin, resized all the photos and posted them on the website. Maybe today, I’ll get the second batch of tins photographed. My hopes are that other Tindeco collectors will discover them and I can sell them. Maybe I’ll even inspire new collectors to start collecting Tindeco. They really are a premium tin and the 1920s when they were created was the heyday of tin container art. Some of the tins feature Harrison Fisher artwork. Also very popular are the Peter Rabbit tins that Tindeco made.
