Shoegazer Collections: Vintage Tins

As I said in my last post, I seem to have begun a collection of little vintage tins. Most of these I found when we were clearing my Nan's old house last year, infact the only one I've bought is the His Master's Voice grammar phone needle tin which I love because music is a big part of my life. 
Vintage Tins...
Above and Below: I found the vintage tabbacco tin stuffed full of old button. The pretty, pale blue pin tin is still full of the original pins as is the Ivy Series drawing pin tin. I love that someone has put soeme tiny dice and games counters in the HMV tin, they obviously put them in there to keep them safe.

 When I move out I hope these will look perfect on a display shelf.

Some great finds! I LOVE the Nipper tin. In the States it's RCA. I didn't realize it was ever anything else. Always something new to learn... Anyway, good luck with the tin collection. Word of caution--it can be VERY addictive!

Yes it is addictive! I have already added a vintage Oxo tin to the collection. Haha. x
