~ All kinds of love for the vintage kitchen Canisters... lurking on eBay...


Even though I have, what I consider the ultimate canister sets... I can not stop myself from lurking around in eBay watching what comes up for sale.  And seeing things I have not came across before in my adventures. Like this sweet set of vintage pink plastic canisters.

What grabbed my attention is the names of the canisters contents is embossed on the top of the white lids.

I love that feature. A nice way to identify the contents, without the name being eventually worn off by handling.

Next.... is a great canister wall unit. A fantastic turquoise canister set with lots of shiny chrome.


How amazing is that shiny thing! With the names pressed into the chrome drawers. The drawers slip all the way out. 


Or they can be pulled out half way too. 


Lots of goodness here. I have seen one of these in yellow. This is my first time seeing this wall canister set unit in Turquoise. And it is amazing.

This last set of vintage turquoise canisters was made by COLS PLASTICS.


I have watched a couple sets of these sale... and they were pricey. So I am not sure if the price reflects something I don't know about these. 


Or they are pricey cause they are simply turquoise and pretty.  :)  So if you see a set of them on your adventures for cheap. Snap them up!

Ooo! I love both those sets! Pink and blue are hard to come by in my neck of the woods. Red is a plenty and I like red but I want more colors! ♥
