Wonderful Vintage Tins for Sale

If you are looking for some wonderful vintage tins to add to your collection then why not visit the yay retro! online vintage shop today? Just look at the great tins we have for sale right now!

These include the ever popular Baretware biscuit tin - now over 50 yrs old, but still a design classic. Also included in our current stock is a Quality Street tin from the 60s/70s - this would be ideal to store buttons, bits and bobs. Biscuit manufacturers such as Huntley & Palmer have brought out some amazing collectable designs over the years - we think that the 'Ocean Life' pattern is one of the most incredible (top left), form the 1950s/60s this one is an incredible vivid green and features tropical fish.

Toffee and Sweetie tins have also been created over the years by manufacturers such as Williams Ltd - we love their tin with the flower seller and romantic 60s couple. Tea producers also made presentation tins to make their tea more attractive to buyers - we have a sweet one in stock covered with teapots, pine cones and ferns from Burton's Biscuits. Perhaps it was in a set including tea and biscuits originally?

Don't forget that other key vintage manufacturer of collectable metalware - Worcesterware - We have a truly iconic set of orange Worcesterware vintage spice tins, on their original shelf and in their original box, and completely unused! Now that would be a vintage gift-and-a-half!

Nip into yay retro! now, and don't forget we do combine postage wherever we can.
