I totally love those glass tulip canisters , and I can not BELIEVE that you found the whole set together! I have just a couple of those sweet little jars, and I felt lucky to find them at all. I'm not sure I've ever even seen an entire set together for sale anywhere! What a lucky find!

You can't have too much red and white anything, in my book! You be safe driving on your trip to and fro, and have a fab time with your parents. Love these things you found!


Very cute finds!

Those canisters are truly fantastic...


I LOVE the canisters!!!

Has anyone ever owned a whole set of those tulip canisters? I've never seen more than one at a time. Have a great weekend, and I hope your parents behave themselves!


Beautiful. I love those cute little decal glasses. A whole set of canisters is amazing. Enjoy your weekend...Renee

Awesome canisters! Awesome! Good luck with the car ride and have a wonderful visit with your parents.


A pretty nice haul for a quick stop if you ask me! I came home with a tiny pile today, as well, and also got a crochet potholder. And was too slow and missed out on a great dress form...8+(


Wow those canisters are spectacular! Safe travels!


Your finds never cease to amaze me! I live outside of Cooperstown, NY, and you'd think there should be a lot available from vintageland, but no. No such luck. I live vicariously through your blog! Thank you for the eye candy, and have a great time.


Like Carol, I have never seen a set of those canisters! Only one or two at a time. What a find!! I love them! Those are one of those things that just make you smile when you look at them! Even if you didn't find much at the sale, you found a great treasure!!

LOVE those canisters! You lucky dog, you!
Have fun with the parents. I read all the time but this is my first comment. But those canisters deserved a response for sure.

I gave out a "squee!" when I saw those canisters--I've never seen anything like them! Very swanky swig-esque. I hope you're having a wonderful visit with your parents!


Love your amazing set of canisters ~ a truly lucky find!

Once again, you came up with some great stuff! I think the canisters are extra special.

Barbara - as always I LOVE all of your purchases. The canister set is esp. wonderful ! On another note - I noticed in the September issue of Martha Stewart Living there is a very nice 6 page article on Green Glass . I thought of you when I saw it !
