I have a real interest in old tins ..anything advertising..and small antiques ( salesman samples...miniature versions of things)...Here is some of what I have collected over the years...and wont lie ...canot tell u the value of any of it ..I just pick up what looks neat ...but I have so much now that I stopped trying to look it up for its value lol..( theres a really heavy metal dog ( cast iron I think its called) and door knockers hiding in there somewhere to ...the lowneys candy can about 9 yrs ago at a garage sale...they where useing it as a nail holder, and thought I was nuts when I asked if they would sell it to me ....he dumped the nails out and said here u can have this piece of junk ..and gave me a bunch more..:-) .and the collection ....if u see anything in these pics you can give me some information on and its value that would be super fabulous!! xoxoxo.

    lol stef....I certainly do ...theres more to come , I find it so sad to see things from the past thrown ina garage or basement or backyard cant buy things today that last like things from the past do ..I will eventually have everything in my house antique ( couches cabinets etc)...I want a kitchen all made out of barn wood ...and I am trying to find areally old harvest table and butcher block that I like ...havent found one yet that that is fairley priced ( they run from 800-1600 out here)...and I am going to have all mismatched antiques chairs around it ...and my walls will be full of old pictures and cabinets showing off all the neat stuff I have found ( garage sales rock !! ) lol

    I had to look up white pine and spruce balsam compound....seems like it was some sort of magical cough syrup from 1915. Sounds yummy
