Terrific Under Ten Tuesday #11

Welcome to Terrific Under Ten Tuesday!
A Linky Party for DIY projects, recipes, thrift finds, family projects that you made or bought for $10 or less!

Garage Sale season is here! Each week, I see more and more signs popping up on street corners. I'm so excited to see what thrift finds I can find this year. :)

This weekend I hit up a couple sales and I found this wonderful old tin for $1!


It appears to be an old food tin.
The lid says:
Loverin & Browne Co.
Wholesale Grocers
Chicago


I opened it up and there was a little flour inside (new flour). Don't think I would put food in this anymore...LOL But it looks wonderful to display.

I just love the detail.


I've been debating on painted it or not. So I did a little research online on this Loverin & Browne Company tin. One of my seaches said it's from the 1870's! Another search said these were rare. And someone else had one for sale for $30. So I don't think I'll be painting it anytime soon. :) Not bad for $1!

Now it's your turn to link up to Terrific Under Ten today!

  4. oh, i love your "new" old tin! It looks right at home! Thanks for hosting and I'm not sure if your project has to have the total price listed...so I'll just say for my DIY canvas art, I payed $4.49 for the canvas, everything else I already had on hand :) I hope you are having a great week so far!
