    All things represent a part of history .. Vintage tins, etc. are no exception.

    Here are some of the tins, tubes, cosmetics, lipsticks, match book covers, etc that I have dug up over the years. Not the most stellar artifacts by any means, but they do hold their place in history. The pellet cans, which were not dug, are local history from the 1970's era of our local hardware store, and they still have the old labels on them. They cost $ 1.15 cents at the time. Anyhow, while this all might be trash to most, it's preserving a wee bit of history to me. Enjoy
