Okay now we have an advertising collectibles booth, been open a few hours and we don't have any members.

I went and borrowed a little from one of my web pages to get the ball rolling.
I've always had an interest in old general stores, hardware stores etc. and wish that I had gotten my act together years ago to recreate an old general store, but well I didn't. But I do have a small collection of advertising tins and old kitchenware scattered about the house. So I guess I sorta got my wish in a smaller scale.

Advertising tins have been around for hundreds of years. Made to hold items like coffee, candy, tobacco and many other items. They also come in many sizes, I think the smallest I've every had was a Bell-ans for Indigestion, Vest pocket tin. 3/4 x 1" in size. Advertisng tins were also made in many different shapes. Cigarettes came in rectangular shaped tins, many tea tins are square. Figural tins in numerous shapes, everything from animals to cars, are hard to come across.

Coffee tins are also a nice colorful collectible and great to hold things, Band-Aid tins are also pretty neat. Maybe you have an old printers tray, many small advertising tins are available to fill it. Collectible medicine and other drugstore related tins are also very interesting. Some of the harder tins to find are the one that old razors came in, the earlier oyster tins are also tough to come by. Vintage advertising tins can run from a couple of dollars up to thousands for some of the rarest tins. Just recently an Austin Powder Co. Blasting Cap tin sold for over $10,000 at auction.

Advertising tins, because of their original use, often have scratches, dents, even a little rust, so don't let a few imperfections scare you off. But like most collectibles the nicer they are the more desirable. Many of the more recent tins are also collectible, more for the look than the value. But beware of repos of the older tins. Actually the newer type tins are collectible but are priced accordingly.

Maybe you would be interested in creating a small version of a general store, drugstore, hardware store in a corner of the house, a spare room, basement or garage. It can be done and you can control the size, of course it will out grown the space if you really get into it.

Okay, see ya in the morning.
Country Joe
