Vintage canisters and containers

Check out the retro goodness that lurks within my old man's garage.  Mind you.. these have been in my Dad's possession since I was a wee lad!



Calumet Baking Powder Can


 Vintage Bearing Grease
These cans were already old when I used them to grease my bicycle bearings in the 70s!



Red Devil enamel circa 1960s


Durham's Water Putty

I can't believe the Old Man still has these, and a few of them even still house their original product!  I remember admiring these (old cans) when I was a kid.  I used to dig the colorful artwork and font types, and still do to this day.

My Dad always had a tough time throwing out containers that could be re-purposed. He's definitely a throwback to a simpler time when folks tried harder to be thrifty and less wasteful.
