Wednesday Weekly Shop Feature
In the LimeLight! Week Two…
Welcome to Week #2 of this new feature. Today, we are thrilled to put some of our favorite Vintage finds in the LimeLight— these fun and functional Kitchen Canisters from O Deer Mercantile.
Pictured above are three darling hard plastic canisters from the 1960s. This is a three-piece stackable nesting canister/ container set with lids. Pale yellow with amazingly detailed graphic designs and harvest gold lids. Ideal for the mod retro kitchen. The set would have originally had four canisters, but I only obtained three 😥
The sizes are as follows:
Large… 6.5 inch diameter and 9.5 inches tall
Medium… 4.75 inch diameter and 7.5 inches tall
Small… 4 inch diameter and 6 inches tall
These canisters are in good vintage condition. Some wear and a few scratches, which is to be expected for vintage items. Ideal for storage in the Retro or Kitsch Kitchen. $18.00 for the Set
The beauty pictured above was an only… However, if I had found the entire set they would be in my happy kitchen, and not for sale. Just saying 😀 Love me some Mid-Century Modern charm.
This listing is for a 1950s Sugar canister only. Spun aluminum with Bakelite handle. There are some light scratches, dents and some wear to the metal, but is in overall good condition. This very cool kitchen container is about 5 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches and 8 inches tall. A great storage piece for the retro or kitsch kitchen. $14.00 for this single canister.
I don’t know about you, but Retro kitchen accessories make my heart go pitter-patter.
I love the Kitschy appeal of the cream and gold plastic set, and swoon over the very cool graphic designs they are decorated with, but I have to say that the sleek finish of the brushed aluminum sugar canister speaks to me in a louder voice. What is your favorite vintage style? Is it shabby or kitsch, regency or country, prim or industrial? I must confess to being quite frankly in love with aspects of all the above. Please feel free to weigh in on this topic. I would love to hear from you. Until next time…
