Vintage Lincoln Beautyware canisters

August 22, 2009 at 3:02 pm 6 comments

A friend of mine was organizing a garage sale for an elderly lady who recently lost her husband.  She allowed me to come the night before in case I found something for my store that I wanted.

The result?

Store sales:  Zero.  Stuff I thought was cool:  lots

Especially this set of Lincoln Beautyware canisters.

The words ‘Lincoln Beautyware’ had never come across my mind until this purchase.  They made some cool things back in the day.  Especially the bread boxes!
My first thought was to keep the canisters since they would fit so nicely into my kitchen.  And they’re cool too.
But then a quick look at my checking account balance changed my mind.  Unfortunately, I can’t find these particular ones anywhere to determine what to list them for.  They are in good condition, a few small nicks and crud around the top of the sugar and coffee ones.  I didn’t take too long to clean them so the crud will probably come off.
Do you know?
