American Pickers with my in-laws and the picker dudes found a set in a pile of rubble. It occurred to me that these were packed away in a box located in my craft nook, originally intended for my brother. I found a complete set a few months ago, however, and sent them to him in lieu of this set. Now, I have these, and I want to share them you.
Valued somewhere between $25-$50, this is a great set in good vintage condition. I would add it to my own kitchen, but I like bigger sugar and flour jars (easier for frequent baking!). These are perfect for a small kitchen in a modern or older home. I truly feel like the clean lines and simple font used on the imprint would blend well in a variety of aesthetics. There are four aluminum canisters (flour, sugar, coffee and tea) with their original plastic (perhaps Bakelite) knobs. Rather than setting this set loose in a local thrift store, I'm going to give the entire set to one of you!
